I always feel like my front door is naked without a wreath. Now that the sun is finally shinning and it is beginning to feel like Spring in NY, I decided it was time to make a Spring wreath.
I stopped at Walmart and got everything I needed to make a beautiful floral wreath for under $10. Walmart actually sells some pretty Spring wreaths for around $18 but I knew I could make my own for cheaper. I found a twig wreath for under $5, Yellow and pink fake flowers for 97 cents each and some green leaves for 97 cents. Lastly, I got some yellow ribbon for under $2.
Using a hot glue gun, I wrapped the yellow ribbon around the entire wreath and also made a loop at the top for hanging. Then I hot glued the pink and yellow flowers to the wreath by just simply pulling the fake flowers from the wire stem. My last step was to add some greenery to the wreath so I glued on the fake leaves.
There you have it! A beautiful DIY Walmart Spring wreath for under $10!
Here is a fun Spring idea to decorate your home. A Hat Wreath! It is so easy and fun to make.
You will need:
A sun hat (I got mine at Walmart for like $4)
hot glue gun
First you will need to glue a loop with the ribbon at the top of the hat(so that the hat can hang). Next I glued ribbon around the hat and created a bow. I found some beautiful Spring flowers from the Dollar Tree. I removed the flowers from the stem and began to hot glue them to one side of the hat. You can get as creative as you like and add as many flowers as you want. I found a cute butterfly at the Dollar Tree as well and glue that on too. It is so fun and festive for Spring.
Happy Spring! To celebrate the occasion here is a really cool idea for fun and colorful drip paint flower pots.
You will need:
A terracotta flower pot
white spray paint
acrylic paint (whatever and however many colors you like)
paper plate or newspaper
something to elevate the pot (can or large bottle of paint)
Spray paint the flower pot white and allow to dry. I did this so that the colors will really pop. Next flip the pot upside down and elevate over either a paper plate or newspaper. It is going to get messy. Next begin pouring the paint around the bottom rim of the flower pot. Squeeze a lot of paint so that it streams down. Add each color at a time and you will see the colors slowly spread and create a cool effect. You do not need to wait for each paint color to dry, you can apply numerous colors of paint one right after the other. Get as creative as you want. Allow plenty of time for it to dry.
