Can you believe it’s already Day 9 of the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop? Yesterday I shared the recipe for delicious peanut butter brownie cookies. Definitely check out the yummy cookie recipes if you haven’t yet. Today is all about dressing up your door, starting with this glittery Merry Christmas floral wreath. You can find everything you need to make this wreath except the ribbon at your local Dollar Tress making it another budget-friendly décor option. Once you’re done here, check out Frugal Tips for Gorgeous Christmas Décor for even more budget-friendly ideas.

- 5-10 Floral Stems (I got some of all of the Christmas stems at Dollar Tree)
- 18 inch Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Glitter Gold and Burlap “Merry Christmas” Ribbon (I got mine at Michael’s)
Remove all of the packaging from your wreath.
Next, fluff your wreath to make it fuller.
Then cut all of your flowers and elements off of their stems.
First, glue your red poinsettias to your wreath.
Next, glue the white poinsettias to your wreath.
Fill out your wreath more with some leaves from your floral stems.
Add your red glitter stems to your wreath next.
Then glue your gold glitter stems on.
Next, add pine cones and flocked fir branches.
Cut a piece of ribbon with one full “Merry Christmas” saying in the center.
Fold the ribbon to form a banner as pictured.
Then check your banner against the center of your wreath for size. You want enough overlap to be able to glue it to your wreath. Readjust it if necessary.
- Do not attach it to your wreath yet.
Next, glue the folds of your ribbon so that they stay in place.
Lastly, attach your banner to your wreath with hot glue.
You’ll notice that there is no ribbon hanger on this wreath. When I tested it, the hanger made it look cluttered. Instead, add an outdoor Command Hook to your door and hang your glittery Merry Christmas floral wreath on the hook. I absolutely love how this wreath turned out. We’ve already gotten a ton of compliments on it which is always nice as a creator. Now, it is time to check out all of the amazing wreaths and door décor ideas that my friends created.
