This year the boys love of Christmas has been infectious. I normally decorate for Christmas, but this year I went extra with all of it. It’s been fun to see them excited when new things come in. Hudson is always looking around making sure it all looks picture perfect and making suggestions for where we need more lights or ornaments! I have created a little mini me that adores all of the little details when it comes to design. It’s a blessing and a curse. Haha. Now I can see how I drive my family nuts with my ideas. Many of the decor items I have picked up have been from thrift stores. It’s been fun to go out hunting and seeing what I can find and how I can re-purpose it for my style. During one of my last trips I found cute faux moss wreaths for $2 and then popped into The Dollar Tree and found cute items to zhush them up!
You can easily pick up a faux moss wreath for less than $5 and get to work on similar wreaths.
First up is my snowman wreath complete with snowballs! Snowmen, white pom poms and red glitter bow were purchased at The Dollar Tree! A little glue gun and you will have a finished wreath in 5 mins!
I was pretty proud of myself about stacking the snowballs on their hands. So cute!
The dollar tree also had sequin Christmas bulbs ornaments. Again with a little glue gun and a bold ribbon I had a wreath in less than 5 mins!
Then I found the best score at The Dollar Tree, sunburst mirrors! They were in brass and silver tones and I picked up 10 of them figuring I could so many things with them!
First easy wreath with the mirrors is to dress up a boxwood wreath. I picked up a fresh one from Trader Joes. With a couple little dabs of hot glue I was able to attach the mirror to the boxwood. The mirrors are plastic and super light.
The last wreath display is my favorite even though it’s not a traditional wreath. Ribbon, glue gun and the mirrors is all you need.
Such an impact for $5 and 5 mins of time!
I had so much fun making them and nothing broke the bank. I always hate when a craft project ends up costing so much more than if you bought the ready made item. They are now sprinkled throughout the house and the boys love them!
