This may be the easiest wreath I’ve ever made! It can be made for under $10 in about 10 minutes. I love how simple it is, but it gives me the coastal look I wanted in a summer wreath.
A couple of months ago, I was looking around at various items at Dollar Tree. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular on that visit, but when I spotted these coastal designed scarves, a simple idea came to mind. I bought five of them, took them home, put them away and then forgot about having them.
After cleaning out my craft supplies last week, I found them and got busy making the wreath. I already had the straw wreath on hand as well as the starfish and ribbon. Don’t you love it when you can shop around your own craft stash to find items that will work for a project without having to go out and buy new ones?
I started the wreath by wrapping the end of one of the scarves around and tying it off.
The next steps? Wrap each of the scarves around the wreath and use pearl head pins to keep it in place.
I wrapped wired ribbon around the wreath and tied a bow, leaving the ribbon long enough to have the two long pieces to curl. I followed that by adding loops of ribbon, secured with pins to give the bow a fuller look.
The starfish is hot glued in place.
Did I mention how simple this wreath is to make?
Find some pretty scarves at the dollar store and add a simple bow and a little embellishment and you’ll have a pretty, inexpensive and easy wreath!
