I am not a DIYer by any means. I learned a LONG time ago that I would much rather pay someone else to do it for me. Not only will it most likely turn out better, but it will most likely cost less as well. It is amazing how fast DIY projects can add up!
I have a very bare mantle, if you can even call it a mantle. I have a flat surface stuck to the wall with very little lip. I added a banner and wreath last fall and really liked it. I have been looking for an inexpensive wreath that I can either buy or make myself that will transition throughout the year for different seasons. I pinned a bunch of ideas but they all looked labor intensive or expensive. But then I stumbled upon Target’s Dollar Spot!
Wreath = $3
Burlap roses/bow = $8 (2 separate packs at Hobby Lobby – found/purchased these before seeing the $1 ones at Target!)
Burlap clip roses (2) = $1
Banner = $3
Twine = $0 (already had some)
Mini Bunting = $0 (already had supplies)
Cheap AND easy!!! I also found a plain solid burlap banner at Hobby Lobby for when it is not Spring/Easter. I plan on changing the mini bunting for each season.
