I found quite a few pins on Pinterest that incorporated hanging wreaths on your kitchen cabinets to make it "merry" in the busiest room of the home. All of them were based upon solid red ribbon looped around a dollar store wreath. Well, unfortunately, all of our dollar stores were sold OUT of the small, plain wreaths! So.... here is a step by step on how to recreate this look if you are in the same situation!
Supplies needed: plain wire bound garland from the dollar store ($1 for a 15 foot length)
red ribbon - any style you prefer!
fabric gift bows (optional- I found these at Hobby Lobby for 50% off)
I cut sections of garland according to the "loop" already formed in the garland, but you can make them larger or smaller. Simply cut the garland to your desired length!
Because this particular garland is wire strung, it makes it easy to form the wreath. Just simply twist the two ends together securely.
Now, measure how far down the kitchen cabinet door that you want your wreath to hang. Cut a length of ribbon that is 2 1/2 times the length that you want it to hang. Lay it so that the center of the ribbon is under the top of the wreath and then pull the bottom end of the ribbon up to the top.
Cut a piece of painter's tape and place it across the ribbon ends. You will use this to tape the wreath up INSIDE the top of the cabinet door, and the wreath will hang down in front.
At this point, your wreath is ready to be hung! However, I took it a step further because I found these ADORABLE ribbon gift bows that matched the ribbon I had selected to hang the wreaths. I just simply peeled off the backing and stuck it to the ribbon right at the wreath top. To ensure that it stayed on through the holiday season, I did add a staple to each one. I just stuck the whole thing in a regular stapler and pushed down. Easy peasey. Now they won't come off!
Ta Da! Very simple, yet elegant, (and most importantly) affordable decor! FYI, the letters that spell out MERRY on top of the cabinet? Those are the cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby, spray painted with red Krylon spray paint + primer all in one. They stand up all by themselves. So cheerful! So, if you are looking for an easy way to decorate, I hope this helps inspire you!
