I am really getting into making these money saving wreaths that are simple and cute. This particular wreath was one of my more expensive ones at about $12.00, but that was simply due to the adorable turkey that I could not pass up. The rest of the materials were dollar store cheap!
- Wire wreath mold ($1.00)
- Some fake leaves ($1.00 for a bushel)
- Some fake sunflowers ($1.00 for a bushel)
- Package of foam gourds ($1.00 for a pack of 5!)
- 2 rolls of wired fall festive ribbon ($1.00 each)
- Hot glue
- A cute turkey for the inside and a small piece of thin ribbon ($3.00)
- A Happy Thanksgiving sticker ($3.00 for a large pack of stickers containing far more than I used)
- Gather supplies & heat up glue gun
- Start wrapping the ribbon around the wreath and overlapping as you go. Use the hot glue to secure the ribbon
- Create three bundles of leaves/sunflowers/gourds and glue them to the wreath. I started by layering the leaves, then adding the sunflower and finally attaching the foam gourds.
- Attach your turkey to the wreath. Mine is dangling from a small ribbon attached to both the back of the wreath and the back of the turkey. I got this exact turkey from Michaels for 50% off 6.00 ($3.00 yo!) He was meant for a pumpkin but I just used some hot glue and made him stand along and then hung him up.
- Stick your Happy Thanksgiving sticker on and hang on your door!
