12 Days of Holiday! Day 8: Dollar Tree Vine Wreath

Items in this post were provided courtesy of Dollar Tree, though all thoughts & opinions are honest & my own.

It's Day 8 of '12 Days of Holiday' & I have another fun, festive wreath that can made in minutes!  This project was made with Dollar Tree goodies, so you can make your holidays sparkle without spending an arm & a leg!


I love decorating with wreaths for any holiday, but especially Christmas!  They just make things happier & you can use them in so many ways that just the front door.

I made this wreath for a silver mirror we have hanging in our upstairs hallway.  I'm trying to spread bits of cheer throughout the entire house & this sweet wreath, along with the reflection it creates down the hall has really jazzed up an otherwise dull space.  And the red bow, adds a bright pop of color!






Here's what you need to make your own: a vine wreath, paint (the color I chose is called light gold), a paintbrush, silver ribbon & a package of these fun modern metallic ornaments.  There are two in a package (for just a buck!) but you only need one.  The other is perfect for the tree or another project!



Start by brushing on a little paint on the wreath & then immediately wiping it off.  I wanted there to be a touch of metal & shine, but for the natural wood to still show through.  Let it dry for a few minutes before continuing on with the rest of the project.



Take one ornament, cut off the holder & weave through some silver ribbon.  If you're going to be hanging it on a mirror, be sure to leave enough ribbon on the top so you can secure it on the back side of the mirror.  Secure ribbon to wreath.  You can tie a pretty bow, or cut a few trimmed pieces.



To secure the wreath to the mirror, I used a small suction cup hook attached to the mirror & also fixed the ribbon to the back of the mirror. I attached the ribbon to the back with several pieces of painter's tape, as to not harm the backing.
