Hey guys!

We were so excited when Jamielyn asked us to come share over at iheartnaptime!  She is one of our very favorite bloggers, and such a sweet person as well.  This is the project I shared over at her site!

Today I will be sharing a super quick, simple and cheap Christmas project I did for my dining room!  I knew I wanted to add a little something to my  mirrors for the holidays, and this is what I came up with…

These are so simple, and can go just about anywhere!

Here is how I made them…

I started with 3 – 14″ grapevine wreaths from Hobby Lobby.  Any craft store carries these.  I found mine for around $2 a piece… Woohoo!  I also bought 3 MDF wood letters from Hobby Lobby to spell out JOY.  These were around $1.50 a piece.

To give my letters a little *bling* I used this fun new product!

Rust-Oleum Glitter Spray Paint in Silver

Love this stuff!  Easy and oh so cute!  I sprayed each letter and worked on the rest while they dried.

I found 3 Christmas picks with little pine cones at Hobby Lobby.  These were my splurge at around $3 a piece, but I like how real they looked!

I used a small pair of pliers to cut little pieces like this off of each pick.

Then I used my hot glue gun to attach them to my wreaths.  Just put a big glob (technical term) on the end of each piece and stick it into your wreath where you want it!

After my letters dried I added a big glob of glue to the back of them as well!

I glued a few extra pinecones to the bottom of each letter and I was set to go!

To hang mine I used wide burlap ribbon.  I find mine at Michael’s, but I know Hobby Lobby has carried it as well!

That’s it!  Simple!

Now let’s do the math…

Wreaths – $6

Letters – $4.50

Picks – $9

Paint – $4

Under $24 for all 3 wreaths… LOVE that!  Fits my shanty budget quite nice!

Here are a few more shots…

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would love for you to share and PIN these below!  Have a great Monday!

  1. I know I’m a little late to the game but I just came across your lovely JOY wreath creation. I am wondering how you affixed the wreaths to the mirrors on top, please? Have a delightful Christmas!

  2. Hello, I have recently found your site through Pinterest and have absolutely fallen in love with your projects. I adore your wreath collection and think you guys should just go ahead and keep making them and showing them. I think this will be the first project I do of yours but I promise it won’t be the last. I love that you guys are moms and probably have hectic lives and I know if you can make your home beautiful on a budget so can I. I’m about to get my own older home with tons of character and your projects are giving me such excitement as I begin to decorate and make it truly mine. Thanks once again. I shall be a frequent commenter.


    1. You are too sweet Kristy! Congrats on your new home and we are SO happy you found us ;-)! Thanks for your sweet comment and happy Thanksgiving!!
