I also heard of a little secret that instead of paying $5 for a foam ring (I know, $5 is $5.. but when you're on a budget, you're on a budget), you can go to your local hardware store (Lowe's is less than a mile from me) and get pipe insulation foam for as cheap as 97 CENTS. Win? I think so! So that's what I did on my way home from work last night, as all of a sudden, I was set on making this wreath so I could hang it as soon as Thanksgiving was over! So here's mine, with a few technical difficulties thrown in - enjoy! Show me your wreath too, I love seeing all the different ones people come up with!
1 foam wreath (insulation or otherwise)
Different-size ornaments (I used about 80 in total)
Ribbon (if desired)
|Thinnest piece of foam is 97 cents.|
|Duct tape it together, and voila! Cheap-o wreath that still serves the same purpose!|
|Aren't they fun colors?!|
|Small silver ornaments to the rescue!|
In total, this pretty little thing cost me:
$8 (for 82 ornaments; Target Christmas clearance)
$3 (small ornaments)
$4.50 (glitter ribbon that I know I'll use all over the place)
A whole $16! Victory!
