Chic Christmas Wreath {On The Cheap}

This is a super cute and super frugal Christmas wreath. I just got the idea in my head for the colors and since I already had the turquoise yarn, it was a done deal!

This wreath cost me all of $1, because I already had most of these items on hand. But, if you had to buy all of these things to make this wreath, it would still only cost you a few dineros, like only 4 or 5 of them.

You will need:

Wreath Form {found at the $ store}
Yarn {your choice color}
Head Pins or glue
Fabric -to make the yo-yo's
Needle and Thread
Glitter word {$1 at Walmart}
Hot Glue Gun {to attach all items to the wrapped wreath}

Wrap the form with the yarn several times, until the form is no longer showing {I used flat head pins to secure, but you could also glue} and make sure the ends of the yard all meet on one side

Once completely covered I added a few funky wraps to give it some texture

Make as many yo-yo's as you would like to add on and decorate with your glitter word as well.
{If you don't know how to make a yo-yo, simply google it, there are so many tuts on them}

Love it, Ashley! I have some of those items too, so I might have to make one of these. My kids are going nuts over making yo-yos - so fun, addicting and amazingly calming too. Hope you're enjoying this Advent season, dear!
