Easy, Elegant Christmas Wreath

If you don’t yet have a Christmas wreath hanging on your front door, now it the time to make one?  Make one?  Yeah, it is super easy! Why now?  Because stores like Michael’s have all their Christmas stuff 50-60% off, making this a super cheap DIY.

Here is how to make a super classy DIY Christmas wreath:

Depending on the size of the wreath (the imitation pine wreath will only cost you $2-$4) you buy you’ll need 6-10 floral picks of varying sizes.  You can also buy an imitation floral bouquet and remove the flowers to use for your wreath. You’ll also need some wired ribbon.

Arrange the picks any way that suits you. 🙂

Instead of measuring the ribbon, loosely drape it around your wreath and cut where it completes the circle.  Arrange the ribbon so that it gently flows around the wreath, tucking it under the pine branches and picks here and there.

If you’d like you can add a bow.  The bow I made is super simple.  Just tie a bow three times.

Wrap the extra ribbon hanging off one end around the center for a nice clean look.   Tuck it into your wreath where it will best provide balance to the wreath.

When you have everything right where you want it use a hot glue gun to glue it all in place.

This classy DIY Christmas wreath will look beautiful on your front door or inside your house, and will last you for years!

Total time spent making: 20 minutes!

  4. Wow, these came out really nice. I was just thinking that I should run to the craft store and buy up some of the discounted Christmas stuff. I'll see if they have any wreaths. I have 4 doors alone on my porch and would love to put one on each door. Thanks for the inspiration.
