I really don’t consider myself a crafty person, but I know all my wreath tutorials this past year say otherwise. I posted a pic of this wreath on instagram awhile ago and got some “how-to” requests, so here goes nothing!
I started with one of these red berry wreaths from Garden Ridge ($20). Mine was more sparkly than the picture below, but I couldn’t find the exact one. They really weren’t berries though, they were more like magical red bling.
I also snagged up an el cheapo ($5) box of red assorted ornaments (matte, shiny, and glittery ones) also from Garden Ridge. And don’t forget to grab whatever sort of ribbon you want for the bow. I used a red burlap ribbon, from-you guessed it-Garden Ridge. (PS I saw last week that my local Hobby Lobby had the big tubes of ornaments for 50% off, you’s welcome) 😉
Now I wish there was more rhyme or reason to my method, but surprise, just like the hair I do-no method to my madness. I just started hot gluing ornaments on where I thought they looked nice. I would recommend doing all of one type, then all of another type (matte, shiny, etc). It helps you visually see where holes are in the layout.
oh, and you are gonna need wine with pug stopper to dull the pain from your hot glue burns.

And then you are gonna need an actual pug to supervise the bow making. She is hard core.
No but really, I have no idea how to make a bow. I just fold the ribbon back and forth, fluff, hot glue, and secure with bread bag ties. Multipurpose.
I secured the bow to the wreath with another bread tie, and some hot glue. Boom boom boom, wreath made! And I only spent $29! Much less than wreaths I see for sale out there.
I am getting excited about CHRISTMAS!! I know I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving. I can’t help it!
BUT, in a nod a to Thanksgiving, I give you…Turkey hat pug!!
I have no idea who’s pug this is, but it is hilarious.
Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving week!
