Thanks to a very lucky yarn sale at the craft store, I paid less for both my yarn and felt than I did for this stupid wreath form that set me back about $6. I know, I know, $6 isn't THAT expensive, but why would I spend that when I can spend less than a dollar? Exactly, I wouldn't!
I found this tutorial on making your own wreath form for less than a dollar from Amanda at The Penny Parlor, by way of Pinterest, and can't wait to try it.
First, go to the plumbing department of Home Depot or Lowes and get a 6 foot piece of foam tubing. It's less than a dollar! Next, cut the tubing to the length you want, form it into a ring and then use duct tape to secure it.
I'll definitely update you to let you know how my own DIY wreath form and Halloween wreath go as soon as I'm done with it.
Also, check out what Amanda did with this wreath form and some coffee filters.
Wow! I'm not worthy!
