DIY Christmas Wreaths

4 Dec

I love decorating the house for Christmas inside and out. This is our first year in our new apartment and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with our front porch. We had a decent porch in our old apartment, but we shared it with other people so we only decorated a portion of it and didn’t do much with the door. I really wanted to do wreaths, but this frugal chick could not justify spending $40 on the doors alone.

So I did what any other good woman would do, I turned to Pinterest and I found a great post by Ami at   She has a great tutorial on making a Pottery Barn knock off wreath. The wreath she used for inspiration retails for $79, Ami spent $6.48

My wreath is slightly different, I used both small and large ornaments. I arranged 8 large gold ornaments around the wreath then arranged  1 small red and 1 small green ornament in between each gold one. Then I did the same thing as Ami, attached each one with a twist tie to the wreath. Mine cost $6.50 each, not bad at all.

Here is what mine looks like


And here is what they look like on my front door
