DIY Simple Green Wreath

DIY simple green wreath - Seriously SO easy to make & costs less than $15 to make!

I have this DIY chalkboard  sitting in our dining room in our new rental that was pretty empty & bare. I knew I wanted to hang a wreath on it, & I looked around for one that I loved for a few weeks. I found a few that I liked, but at $40+ I wasn’t really that into them. So, what does a DIY-er do when we are faced with this issue? We make our own! This little wreath is so simple & only took me about 15 minutes to complete. Oh, & did I mention it cost around $12 to make?

Ok. Let’s get this simple wreath going! First you are going to need some floral wire {I used two kinds, the plain green floral wire and the brown covered wire} & than a strand of garland. I found all of these items in the same aisle at Michael’s. Convenient. You might already have some wire on hand & be sure to use a coupon for the garland.

` After all of the garland is secure tuck & trim all the loose pieces until you are happy with how it looks.

` I hung the wreath by wrapping a piece of the floral wire around a nail at the top of the window.

& there you have it! The quickest loveliest green wreath that you ever did see!

& I still haven’t advanced in my chalkboard skills. Usually Mr. LMB is in charge of all chalkboards in the house, but I gave him the week off. I’m envious of his chalk skills for real. Anyways, What do you think of my DIY simple green wreath? Have you made a wreath like this before?
