DIY Christmas Wreath for under £5

I bought this cute little painted wicker wreath for a pound at the weekend! At the time I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it but for a pound I couldn’t resist it!

Then I spotted some packs of small baubles and Poundland became my new favourite shop!

You’ll need a hot glue gun to complete this project, which cost around £10-£15 but since I already have one this really did only cost a few pounds to make!

Hot glue gun

I got the wreath and baubles from Poundland in the UK but you could probably find similar at Michaels, or even Dollar Tree if you’re in the US. I used less than one pack for my design but if you wanted to cover the wreath you would probably need around 4 to 5 packs.

How To

I stared off by removing the gold hanging bits from the baubles and then glued one bauble to the bottom centre of the wreath. I put a blob of glue on the wreath, placed the bauble on, making sure I was hiding the top part where the gold hanging bit used to be, and held it in place for a few seconds. Then I just worked out from the centre trying to keep both sides looking even and with a good placement of colours and the shiny, matt and glittery baubles.

It took less than 15 minutes to put together and then I left it to dry for an hour or two before displaying!
