Make a summer wreath from Easter sales! Shown above is a gorgeous wreath that I re-created, using heavily discounted Easter-themed items. Don’t be afraid to buy Easter items on sale, deconstruct them, and then reconstruct them to your heart’s content!
These three items shown above, originally priced for a total of $41.00 at Big Lots, cost me a total of $10.25 on sale after Easter.
For instance the Easter wreath I bought was originally $20, but was later marked down to $5. I literally tore out what I didn’t like on the original Easter wreath, and then re-created it into something more understated for summer. I pretty much destroyed that Flowers & Garden container, pulling out the lavender artificial flowers and greenery to add and interweave into the wreath.
All it took was a pair or scissors, wire cutters, and some imagination. Oh yeah, and some vacuuming once I was finished, because my worktable was completely littered with bits of wreath, styrofoam, and destroyed artificial flora.
But the result! Considering that my summer wreath, once re-created to my liking, only cost $10.25, I was pretty darned pleased. Similar summer wreaths from stores start at around $40, and can cost far more, such as those shown at Amazon or at Wayfair. Plus, there’s the satisfaction that I made something with my hands and tailored it to my liking.
If you decide to make a summer wreath from Easter sales, then you might be as pleased as I was. It’s a great way to get creative on a budget. Of course, you also get to show off your creativity by hanging your gorgeous summer wreath on your front door.
