I went to the Dollar Store the other day to pick up some bows for our outdoor wreaths. We have nine windows with wreaths in the front, and I refuse to pay $5 for a bow that will be beaten by the wind, and bleached by the sun. I can’t do it.
While I was there, I saw these cute little wreaths. I thought maybe I could put them on the doors of the kid’s rooms with those command strips. But then I saw the GLITTER BOWS!! I knew that I needed those in my house.
I have either been pregnant or chasing toddlers (or both!) for all of the Christmas’ we have lived here. Our decorations are kind of lacking. I do prefer handmade decor, but with littles, there isn’t a whole lot of time to make decorations.
This seemed like a super simple project that wouldn’t take much time. Plus is was pretty cheap! $1 for each wreath (3), the bows were $1 but came in packs of 2 (2 packs), I repurposed the bows that came with the wreaths to hold them together, and I had the adhesive. $4.50ish isn’t too bad for a three tired wreath!
You will need:
This project is really SO easy. Let the kids help you, or let them do it.
Take the bows that came with the wreaths apart and set them aside. You will use those.
Lay the wreaths side by side and place the bow part under two wreaths.
Cut short strips of adhesive. You can use a hot glue gun. With the kids around, I thought this adhesive would be less dangerous. Attach these to the ribbon, peel off the backing, and secure to the overlapping ribbon.
Do this twice.
Attach the glitter bows to the red ribbon pieces.
And voilà. You are finished. So easy and simple.
You can hang your easy three tiered wreath on your front door, back door, window, on the wall. You can ever change out the ribbons to match your decor and keep it up all year round. There is nothing about this project that screams it has to be for Christmas. Except maybe the red glitter bows, but those can be changed out easy enough.
Enjoy! Please come back and share with your created projects. I can’t wait to see them!!
