Make an $9 Americana Wreath

Did you come by and check me out yesterday at Simply Designing?
Ashley has such a cute little blog, but if you didn't get a chance to stop by -
Here is what you missed!

An Americana Wreath!


You will need:

  • a grapevine wreath
  • 7 rolls of ribbon
  • America Sign
  • Scissors

All of my supplies were bought at Dollar Tree for $9+tax!

Creative and Cheap!!


First: Pull the paper tag off the wreath, leaving the plastic tie -
you will use this to hang up your wreath.


Second: Cut up your ribbons to your desired length
Mine were about 12 inches.


Third: Start tying on the ribbon.


Tie on as much as you would like.



Fourth:
Attach the America Sign onto the back. I simply untied one side of the sign and looped it through the plastic tie at the top. Then I re-threaded it, tied it off and nestled the sign a little bit crooked in the wreath. It fits just a little bit tight so it was perfect.

You can also just let it hang down in the front.

Just decide what you like and go for it!



Fifth:
Hang it up and enjoy!
