Who has struck gold with the Christmas clearance sales going on the last couple of weeks? I have!!! I went to Joann Fabrics last week and SCORED some awesome wreath making materials for 75% off!!
I made the Winter Wonderland wreath for just $7.45 total – when it would have cost me $28.95 if I bought these items BEFORE Christmas at full price.
Here’s the breakdown of what I got:
Greenery wreath – Paid $3.24 – normally $12.99
Snowflake Ribbon – Paid $1.49 – normally $5.99
Blue Poinsetta – Paid $1.74 – normally $6.99
Silver Glitter Berries – paid $0.49 – normally $1.99
I brought home 4 of the greenery wreaths because you can’t find a wreath base that cheap!
All together I ended up making 3 wreaths. I also made a snowflake variety that you can see in the middle below:
For The snowflake wreath, I used a silver flower I got on clearance at Walmart for just $0.25! The snowflake ornaments I ordered on Amazon here: Vickerman Plastic Glitter Snowflake, 4-Inch, Silver, 24 Per Box for $6.95 (which ends up being $0.29 each.)
HERE’S THE BREAKDOWN OF WHAT The Snowflake Wreath Cost:
Snowflakes: $2.03 ($0.29 x 7)
Silver Flower: $0.25
Total = $7.06 – a bit cheaper than the other variety!
Since these are “winter wonderland” themed wreaths, these can stay up a couple more months and don’t have to come down with all of my Christmas decor. I just made them – I’m not ready to take them down yet. 🙂
