Happy Wednesday, Friends! When I shared my thrifty spring decor, I mentioned that I shop the dollar store weekly to find the best selection. Today's 15 Minute Fix is a simple wreath created with craft supplies from--you guessed it--the dollar store!
I picked up two spools of this aqua burlap ribbon a few months ago, and haven't seen any more since. That's why I've learned to buy it when I see it. They do seem to keep the foam wreaths in stock, or at least they do at the one near me. You'll also need glue dots, unless you prefer to work with a hot glue gun. I started by securing the end of the ribbon onto the wreath form.
Next, I wrapped the ribbon around and around the wreath, just as I did with last month's heart wreath.
One spool was almost enough for this 10" wreath, but not quite, so after finishing with the second, I had some leftover to add to my craft stash.
Once the wreath was wrapped, I used several glue dots to secure the ribbon to the back.
Now for the fun part--time to decorate the wreath. I used dollar store stickers and some tiny chicks from last year's Easter clearance. I think I've seen some similar chicks at the dollar store, but I've included a link at the bottom of the post, just in case. Maybe you already have something in your craft stash. It doesn't have to be chicks. Choose a bunny, flower or even eggs--whatever says spring to you!
What will your greeting say?
