$4 Halloween Wreath

$4 halloween Wreath

I’m at it again with my Dollar Tree finds! I have an old window hanging in my dinning room, I keep a boxwood wreath hanging on it most of the time but during a holiday I obviously like to switch the boxwood wreath for something more festive. I didn’t have one for Halloween until I was at the Dollar Tree the other day and an idea sparked after browsing their Halloween accessories.

What I found

They always have these green styrofoam wreaths at the Dollar Tree and I found these black and orange glitter balls “vase fillers” and got 3 packages of them (only 2 pictured) totaling $4 !

What I already had

  • Black paint
  • A paint brush
  • Some ribbon for a bow
  • A hot glue gun and glue sticks

One

The first thing I did was Take the green styrofoam wreath and paint it black.

Then I took the orange and black shiny “vase fillers” and separated them into different containers.

After I got my accessories organized like I wanted, I grabbed my hot glue gun and began gluing the balls on (no specific pattern or place). I glued them on the front first, then on the inside rim and lastly onto the edges on the top part. I left the back blank because honestly, it was more time consuming than I thought it would be and no one was going to see the back anyway. 🙂

I basically just kept glueing the balls on until I achieved my desired look.

After all the balls were hot glued on to perfection (isn’t that darling)?! I got out some old ribbon I had saved that was attached to a wedding gift Wade and I had received (I thought the black and white stripes were the perfect match for this project) and made a bow and hanger for the wreath.

Five

Lastly I took a hole punch and made a hole in the part of the hanging ribbon to hang it from a nail on that antique window I have in my dinning room. It was beyond adorable!

$4 DOLLARS YALL! I love this cute Halloween wreath and maybe it was a tad time consuming but totally worth it and you really can’t beat it for $4!!!! *AWESOME*

About Farm Foods

Food has come to be anonymous, mass produced and far from anything that our ancestors, well even our grandparents, grew up eating. We want buying food to be personal again, bring back the authentic original concept of nourishing flavorful meats. From the farm, just like it once was. Authentic by definition means just that – being genuine, of undisputed origin, accurate and reliable.

In one of her books, hooks defined love according to Peck's definition in his 1978 book The Road Less Traveled: love is “the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth” (as cited in hooks, 2000. (2000). All about love: New visions.
