Frugal Crafts – Christmas Bow Wreath

Christmas Bow Wreath

This Christmas Bow Wreath is such a quick and easy project to make!!  The whole project cost less than $3 and looks great! Making the wreath was super easy. The hardest part was cutting the circles from the cardboard. This is a perfect frugal and simple craft to decorate your home for the Christmas holiday. This would make a  great gift too!  Last year after Christmas I was able to pick up bags of bows for $.39 on clearance so be sure to keep an eye out for markdowns!

Supply List For Christmas Bow Wreath:

  • Piece of cardboard at least 20 inches all around to cut your circle
  • Bows (We had three bags of 20 from Dollar General for $1 but only used 40 bows all together)
  • Glue
  • Optional Spray paint

Directions for Christmas Bow Wreath:

  • Find 2 nice size bowls to trace around. You will need one bowl for the outside of the circle and a smaller bowl for the inside of the circle.
  • Cut a circle on your cardboard.  Our circle had outside dimensions 14 inches and the inside circle was 10 inches.
  • I spray painted my circle green so if it showed  a color through the bows instead of cardboard.
  • Start gluing the bows!!!  We used hot glue and spaced them out before starting to glue! If you use crafting glue the kids would be able to help as well!
