DIY New Years Eve Wreath!

Besides all of the uber-creative and incredibly entertaining blogs I read, my best resource for creative inspiration is to aimlessly walk the aisles at various stores. Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, you name it.

My latest inspiration? A DIY New Years Eve Wreath inspired by items at the Dollar Tree. This whimsical and sparkly wreath is perfect for welcoming guests to your NYE party! The best part? It costs $4 and took about 20 minutes!

Here's what you will need:

Wooden Wreath Form ($1 - Dollar Tree)

Gold Tissue Paper ($1 - Dollar Tree)

Foil Shreds/Tinsel ($1 - Dollar Tree)

Noisemaker Horns ($.49 cents each - Party City)

Scotch Tape - (Free - Already had it!)

So, here is how you make this super simple wreath. While you are watching TV, drinking wine, or hanging with your friends (I was doing all 3, thank you very much), do some crafting!

  • Wrap the tissue paper around the wreath form and fasten it with tape. 
  • Grab a handful of foil shred/tinsel and tie it around the wreath. Fasten with tape if needed.
  • Add decorations - I used cutout black letters to spell 2011 and sparkly noisemaker horns to add the finishing touches.

The final product?

I love this picture below...It shows my Christmas tree in the background, which is still up and I am loving it. I will take it down next year....Get it? 
Hee Hee... I always loved that joke...

Even if you are not great at math (like moi), it's easy to calculate that this is a DIRT CHEAP project! 

$4 + 20 minutes, and you have a cute wreath for your NYE soiree!
