DIY Lighted Wreath

DIY Lighted Wreath

I have been shopping for Christmas lights and was shocked by some of the prices!  All I wanted was something simple to hang in my front window. Everything was at least $20.  

I found something for $9 at Target but it looked really cheap.

Then I thought... well I can make cheap decorations too, Target! So, take that!

So I came up with a DIY lighted wreath.  I went into my closet and found an old light strand and a hanger.

Materials
1 light strand
1 wire hanger

Cost: 1 light strand (mine was $2-$3), and wire hanger was free.
Project time: 10 minutes

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Take the wire hanger (one of those cheap ones from the dry cleaners) and bend it into a circle.
2. Attach lights to it. I used scotch tape to keep the lights in the right position. Cut off extra scotch tape ends.

Hmmm, the extra tape looks silly.

3. No more directions. You are DONE!

I left the hanger part as it is because it acts like a built in hook. I just hooked it on the window lock.
Looks silly in the day, but don't all Xmas lights look silly during the day?

Now, look at it at night.  


Imagine what it would look like when you drive by the front of the house!

Not too shabby for $3. Take that, Target!
