You may have seen the pretty vintage-style wreath at Anthropologie this season...
Sadly, it completely sold out before I could order it. But thanks to Target and some vintage ornaments, I discovered I could easily make a similar one myself - and for under $10! I found the tinsel covered wreath in the Dollar Spot at Target. At only $3, it was a true bargain!
I love that the tinsel was a combination of silver and gold strands - it gives it more of a vintage-look, don't you think? And the wreath form is already covered with the tinsel - all ready for some decoration!
All I needed to complete the look were some mercury glass ornaments. There are many reproductions out there, but if you want true vintage (and there really is nothing quite as beautiful), you can find them very inexpensively at yard sales and thrift shops - especially if you look in the off-season. I bought a bag of all the ones seen on my wreath for only $5!
If you can't find vintage, Target also has tubes of adorable mini ornaments - 16 for $1!
To attach the ornaments, you will need some thin jewelry wire - just thread a piece through the ring cap and twist a few times to secure.
You can then use the wire to easily secure the ornaments to the wreath. Personally, I like to gild the lily, but you could certainly add fewer ornaments and it would still be lovely.
Although I was really disappointed to miss out on the Anthro wreath, I think I may even like mine a little bit better. :-)
