I am so excited to share this wreath with you! Dollar Tree is a great place to get your ribbon and embellishments for wreaths. I made a similar wreath for 4th of July. When I saw they had burlap ribbon for Christmas, I knew I wanted to try this again. Plus I could not resist that adorable red truck ornament!
For this wreath you will only need the following supplies:
- Wreath Form Ring
- Ribbon – 2 rolls for the body of the wreath plus ribbon for the bow
- Ornament or other embellishment
- Glue Gun
Wreath Creation Steps
The steps to making this wreath are super simple and will only take about 10 minutes!
- Wrap the ribbon around the wreath ring as shown above. This took exactly two rolls of ribbon. Each roll was 9 feet of ribbon.
- Use the glue gun to secure the ends of the ribbon.
- Using a third roll of ribbon, make a bow to attach to the top of the wreath. I had purchased an extra roll of burlap ribbon and a roll of red ribbon since I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to use. I went with the red ribbon.
- Remove the hanger from the ornament.
- Attach the ornament to a small strip of wide ribbon using a glue gun.
- After adhering the ornament, glue the other end of the ribbon to the back of the wreath.
- Glue a small ribbon loop to the top of the wreath so it can hung.
This wreath is super simple to make and an adorable addition to your holiday decor. My kids both actually commented on how cute it was. They normally only get excited over our kids’ crafts!
Be sure to check out your local Dollar Tree early in the season for best selection. These supplies only cost me about $5 and the entire wreath only took about 5 minutes! You can’t beat that! 🙂
