We don’t spend a lot of time making crafts but there are a few crafts I really enjoy making. For this Christmas, we decided to make our own wreath for the door than buying it. If you do find a wreath that’s comparable, it’s going to come with a hefty price tag. You can make one of these yourself at a fraction of the cost and it took me just a little over an hour to make both wreaths, and that included picture-taking time.
There are a few basic steps you’ll need to follow when making your own Christmas wreath but they’re simple, and if you’ve never made your own I want to boost your confidence that you can do it and you’ll be so happy you did! Homemade anything is always so gratifying and each day when you come home and see that wreath on your door, you’ll beam with pride.
Let’s get started!
When it comes to Christmas we’re very traditional and we love the old-fashioned red, green, white, and silver. You can use any color scheme or kinds of decorations you prefer. Just simply use these ideas for inspiration and customize it to your own preferences.
Some tips for you when it comes to making the wreath;
- The size of decorations you use will depend on the size of wreath you use. For example, if you’re making a huge wreath, you’ll want to include some large ornaments. If you’re making a small wreath, large ornaments won’t look very good. I’ve gathered a few decorations of varying shapes and sizes. Ikea and Daiso are always a great place to find anything you’ll need for this project.
- You’ll also need plenty of fresh pine branches. Avoid ones with thick stems, go with the thinner ones because you need to be able to bend them. For us, we used a green garland.
- Moreover, you’ll also need a pair of clippers and some florist wire as it will provide good support while allowing you to easily bend and twist it.
- Silver Christmas bulbs
- 0.3m of White Satin Ribbon
- Red bells
- 1m of Green Garland
- 0.5m of Sliver beads Garland
- Wooden Wreath
Start by twisting the green garland around the wooden Wreath in the clockwise motion. Secure them to the straw wreath by wrapping some florist wire around them, strapping them down to the base. Continue twisting the Sliver beads Garland around in the clockwise motion. Okay, now your basic pine wreath foundation is complete!
Make a bow using the White Ribbon, trim of the ends. Using the florist wire, attach the bow with the bells. Secure it to the wreath.
Finish the wreath by adding Silver Christmas bulbs to the wreath. You’re done! And just look at this positively gorgeous Homemade Christmas Wreath!
