I was talking to a friend recently and she was telling me that she can't believe how expensive wreaths are these days. She just wanted a simple greenery wreath but didn't want to dish out 20 or 30 bucks!

"I've got you," I told her! I literally had just finished making this easy 5-minute wreath a couple days before.

Where are all my wreath lovers? How about a wreath that takes about 5 minutes to make and costs under $10? Can I get a "me me me me me"? ๐Ÿ˜‚

When I did a quick Spring refresh in our bedroom, of course I made some changes to our nightstands as soon as I took the styled pictures! Don't ask me why, I'm always tweaking things!

I had borrowed a few items from around our home to style the nightstands for their beauty shots. Normally, we don't have this much stuff on our side tables, especially Mr DIY!

But when I returned the borrowed items to their original homes, I noticed there was an empty space between the sconce and Mr DIY's nightstand.

Why have I never noticed it before? I decided to fill up remedy the neglect with a simple wreath of greenery. It hangs on our DIY faux brick wall and adds a nice bit of color to the room. 

This wreath was so simple to make, I almost couldn't believe it and knew I needed to share the 'tutorial' with you!

How to make a 5 minute wreath for under $10

This is all you need to make a beautiful green wreath in about 5 minutes.


Supplies: You'll need a grapevine wreath to use as your base, a bush of leafy greenery and wire snips.

Please note: my grapevine wreath is about 12" and I made it from a larger wreath that I purchased. I always cut my grapevine wreath forms down. Curious as to why? You can find out why and how I separate and cut my grapevine wreaths here. I made a short video explaining the reason.

Of course you can simply purchase a 12" wreath form to make it easier on yourself.

I found this greenery bush at Hobby Lobby and loved the loose leaves. They are also a nice color and don't look plastic-y like some of the faux greenery out there! Of course now that HL is no longer offering a 40% coupon, I had to wait until the greenery was on sale.

Is anyone else upset about the coupon going away? C'mon HL, bring back the coupon!

Okay, rant over.

The next step was to cut all the branches away from the central stem of the bush. I started at the bottom and pulled each stem away so I could get a nice, close snip.


I think I ended up with about 14 smaller pieces of greenery.

Then, I simply stuck the ends into the grapevine, working my way around the wreath and overlapping the greenery until the wreath form was covered.



It really was that easy and it took me longer to write this post than it did to create this simple wreath!

Because I already had the wreath form, and just had to buy the greenery, this sweet little wreath cost me just $6 to make!


It doesn't look like a $6 wreath though, does it? It looks like one you could buy for $20-30 at the store!


I love that it feels like it brings the outside in even though it's totally fake! A little greenery is a great way to liven up a bland space!

And how does Mr DIY like this new addition to his side of the bed?
