It’s Thursday and I couldn’t be any happier. One I’m off on Friday so that’s a win! Also tonight is the Cougars last home game for the season! It’s bittersweet because I love college football but I get my Saturday’s back! But nonetheless I’m super proud of our team and this is our biggest game of the year! So let’s go Coogs!
I have a super fun and exciting post for you today! It’s about my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, and how you can make a super easy, inexpensive, and festive centerpiece for all of those hosting Thanksgiving or even for those who want to add a little umph and get in the “turkey spirit.”
This entire project cost me a total of $11! That’s right $11!! I got everything from Dollar Tree and I was shocked to find some of the items that I did! I promise that I have never checked there until I recently read a blog post about how the dollar store has a lot of amazing craft finds so I had to go check it out! I had the tools I used prior to the project but if you don’t then it will probably cost you no more than $20.
Let’s get started and jump right into this super fun craft!
- Glue Gun
- Wire Wreath (It didn’t have a size but it looks like a large)
- 4 9ft Burlap Ribbon (or 36ft total)
- Flowers, pumpkins, pinecones, etc.
- Pumpkin to fit in the middle of the centerpiece (I bought one about the size of a pie pumpkin)
- Start with burlap. Make a knot on any of the wire sides. Start the burlap through one loop out the other and continue this all the way around. I didn’t have as much as I wanted and ended up with spaces but it’s okay! Once you get to the third step you won’t be able to see any of it!
- Taking your flowers and scissors cut off the flowers or whatever you are using to decorate the wreath with. Luckily the ones I bought I could just pull off the wire. If you can try to buy these it will make it a lot easier for you than cutting wire.
- Taking your hot glue gun start picking up the florals of your choice and start placing them around your wreath. Be creative! You can do whatever you want! This is what makes it so fun and unique. No one else will have this one but you. 🙂
- Once everything is on and dry you can put the pie pumpkin in the middle of the wreath. Enjoy all the fall colors that you chose for your centerpiece! I promise it will be a show stopper once every sits down to eat!
That completes the tutorial! I told you it was super easy to make and it took me about 45 minutes to do it all! Not bad especially when you need to use your time cooking and getting ready for you guest to come! I hope you enjoyed this fun and quick centerpiece! I will be doing a Follow Friday blog post tomorrow and I want to see your awesome blogs! I’ve been able to look through some but leave your links below so I can check out your amazing work!
Have a great Thursday it’s almost the weekend!
