Are you ready for the easiest holiday wreath that you’ll ever make? This shimmery DIY patriotic wreath is so simple to and perfect to display on your door! Click To Tweet We are back this month with another awesome Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge! I knew I wanted to make some sort of patriotic craft but it wasn’t until I was at the thrift store that the idea solidified. If you’ve ever seen those garland wreaths at your local thrift store and thought, “Ugh, that’s hideous” and moved on: Don’t! The garland may be faded and ratty, but that plastic base underneath is pure gold for creating your own gorgeous wreath that actually fits your style. What’s even better is that the Dollar Tree always has fun and festive garland for a buck so you can grab the one you want cheaply. It’s like the perfect marriage of stylish and budget-friendly decor! I wanted to take this project a step further without adding a bunch of extra work for myself. That’s why I picked up a super fun glittery fireworks bow. It adds that extra bit of flair without adding a ton of time and work to the project, a dream for busy moms like us.
