DIY Christmas Wreath in 4 easy Steps

Today I want to show you how I made this wreath. If you know me well, you know I'm not a crafter, which means, if I can do it, so can you.

Materials Needed: 
• Glue Gun
• 1 Glue Stick
• Wooden Letter
• Wreath
• Ribbon
• Pipe Cleaners
• Poinsettias

Step 1. I went to Hobby Lobby and I bought the wreath for $5, the black and gold ribbon, pipe cleaners and the fake Poinsettias. I recycled the L from a wreath I made a few years ago.

Step 2. Pipe cleaners can work wonders. Yes, I know I'm late to the craft game but here's how I used them: I removed the Poinsettias from the plastic steam and I asked my daughter to insert the Pipe Cleaners as the new steam.
Step 3. Once you insert the new steam, just work the flowers on top of the wreath. I thought 3 was enough. And yes, I reused the rest of the Poinsettias in a vase. Repurpose is the rule of the game around here. I also went on Pinterest and looked up how to make a nice Christmas bow. I used the ribbon of my choice and I wrapped it with Pipe Cleaners. I used the same Pipe Cleaner to connect it to the wreath. 
Step 4. The last step is to use a Glue Gun and glue the L to the wreath. What we got was this:
Super cute and super easy! Let me know how your wreath turns out. I know you'll do well!
