Don’t you love holiday signs? Don’t you love them even more when you find them in the Target dollar spot for just $3 or $5?!! A friend brought this cute Christmas tree sign to me and wondered if I could make a wreath using the sign. I know you aren’t likely to still be making a holiday wreath, but you could use the same concept with a winter sign and keep the decor up on your door.
I am so excited to be joining a group of crafty bloggers as we all share our idea of a Christmas craft! I thank Andrea from Design Morsels for organizing this hop! Check out the links at the bottom of this post to visit all of the participants!

I wanted to do something a little different than just a wreath, so I got out this small tobacco basket to begin with. This one measured about 15 inches across.
A 12 inch wreath fit snugly inside the tobacco basket.
A piece of dry floral foam was wrapped with a piece of chicken wire.
A pipe cleaner or piece of floral wire can be used to secure the foam to the tobacco basket. Thread the pipe cleaner through the chicken wire and around the back of the basket.
Make sure you tuck the wire ends of the wreath back through and into the foam. You don’t want any wires sticking out to scratch your door or wall when you hang your basket.
Use a pipe cleaner to attach the wreath and the sign to the tobacco basket.
When you turn it over, you should have something like this pictured above. You could use any sign, it does not have to be round.
Because this was wreath and basket were small, I wanted to make the entire piece a little larger. I used this piece of foam to add a distinctive look to this piece. Use some thick stemmed pieces of greenery and add them to your block of foam as shown above.
Continue to add various Christmas greens until you are happy with how full it is.
I tied a nice Christmasy plaid bow and secured it with a stiff floral wire.
The heavy wire can just be stuck into the floral foam as shown above.
I decided to add a couple of snowy pinecones to finish off my swag. To add pinecones, stick a stiff piece of wire across the top like I have done above.
Bend the wire into “U” shape as shown.
Twist the ends of the wire near the pinecone and you can then stick the ends of the wire into your foam.
I decided upon hanging it that my decoration needed a smaller bow at the top. I added that and my cute little wreath in a tobacco basket is ready to display! Don’t overlook those cute signs when you spot them! You never know what you might come up with as a way to display it!
