Glam Gold & Silver Polka Dot Holiday Wreath

Hi everyone! Now that Halloween it's over, you'll find me obsessed with Christmas decor, and thanks to Ariel from PMQ for Two, I got to get in the holiday spirit a little early. So, I challenged myself to use stuff I already had on hand to create a holiday wreath for this blog hop. I have so much holiday craft stuff, so I'll show you what I whipped up in under an hour last week.

Truth be told, I'm not a huge fan of DIY wreaths because they can get expensive, so if I do them I keep them simple. This year I'll have a lot less house to decorate thanks to the move to the apartment, so I'll keep the same gold, silver, black and white theme going. 

Here's my Glam Gold & Silver Polka Dot Holiday Wreath:

An easy and quick DIY glam gold and silver polka dot holiday wreath tutorial. Simple, sparkly and bright.

Even if you're not crafty, you can totally make this during an episode of your favorite TV show (like I did!) and you'll likely have most of the supplies on hand.

Supplies:
-Wire wreath frame with tinsel ties (or use floral wire or pipe cleaners)
-Small gold and silver ornaments
-Hot glue gun or glue dots
-Clip-on magnolia flowers
-Deer head/bust
-Burlap ribbon (I used about 4 yards)
-Scissors
-Fishing wire
-Wreath hanger or command hook

Step 1: If you have a wire form with ties, there's likely an outer set and an inner set. If there's not, just use some floral wire or tinsel pipe cleaners instead. Scrunch up the end of your burlap ribbon and secure in place. Keep going around the outer edge of the wreath form scrunching and securing. Once you get to your starting place, trim the ribbon with scissors. 

Step 2: Do a second round of ribbon scrunching on the inner portion of the wreath form using the inner set of ties. This will make your ribbon wreath form look fuller. 

Step 3: Clip on your flowers on the lower left edge in a cluster. 

Step 4: Hot glue pairs of ornaments around the wreath (I tried to place them near where the ties were). I used disco ball type ornaments that sparkle and catch the light. Put the wreath on a wreath hanger. 

Step 5: Using fishing wire, hang the deer bust in the center of the wreath -- I hung it on the wreath hanger. 

And that's it! An easy peasy wreath that'll look good into New Year's.

I love these magnolia clip-on flowers. They're from Dollar Tree, and I snagged them for 25-cents a piece last year. For dollar store flowers, they're so pretty.

The deer bust is from At Home and they have them in a ton of colors for about $6-$10. I bought a silver and gold one.
