So for this month’s Ten on the Tenth I’ve decided to make a new Spring wreath for the front door. The theme is, things that we love to decorate with all the time.
And for those of you wondering what Ten on the Tenth is well, it is a group of us blogging friends who get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less then ten dollars. Last month we talked about Spring projects and the month before we shared Valentine’s Day ideas.
What I used:
- Wire wreath form from the Dollar Tree
- 2 white flower bunches from the Dollar Tree
- One spool of ribbon on sale at Michael’s for $4
- One bunch of yellow tulips also from Michael’s for $2
I also used a few things I had at home
- some twine
- a transparent ribbon
- a red bird figurine
The How to:
The first step was to wrap the chambray ribbon with the lace around the wreath form. I just tucked the ends into the back, no glue needed. I really love that ribbon, it actually came like that with the lace on top of the chambray.
However this can be tricky at times because the plastic stems will not stay bent. In this case I took a piece of transparent ribbon I already had, and wound it around the bottom of the wreath. This serves to separate the flowers and keep them in place so they look like a fan.

And because I wanted to add a bit of a rustic touch I wound a piece of twine all around over the chambray part of the ribbon.
Nothing brings a smile to my face like a pretty wreath on the front door of the house! It doesn’t have to be fancy, and it certainly doesn’t have to cost a lot as I have just shown with this simple wreath. In fact I spent about 9 dollars on this one. And because nothing has been glued down I can reuse all the materials on future projects.
