A Christmas wreath makes for a terrific holiday decoration. You can hang a wreath just about anywhere, so it won’t take up a lot of space in your home. It offers a cheery look that brightens up any interior design.
Wreaths are sold in most locations that stock holiday decorations, but you can add something unique to your décor by making your own. Here are some DIY wreaths that will serve as a fun holiday activity and will get your home looking terrific.
Bundt Pan Wreath
Who says a wreath has to have natural elements? Put an artificial spin on it by making your wreath out of a Bundt pan. Line the inside of the pan with Styrofoam and glue it in place. Then use more glue to attach ornaments to the Styrofoam. Finish it off with a large, brightly colored bow.
Pom Pom Wreath
Start by cutting a wreath shape out of Styrofoam. Then use a pom pom maker to make as many pom poms as you need to cover it. The end result will be a cheery looking wreath that provides the perfect finishing touch to country Christmas holiday décor.
Magnolia Leaf Wreath
To make this wreath, you will need to buy magnolia leaves or gather then from your backyard. Paint them various colors like silver, gold and deep red. Stick the ends into a piece of Styrofoam shaped into a wreath and you will have an attractive decoration for your front door.
Peppermint Candy Wreath
To make this wreath, all you will need is a whole bunch of peppermint candies and a hot glue gun. Keep gluing the candies together forming a circular shape. It will look and smell terrific.
Felt Tie Wreaths
Start by making a wreath shape out of the material of your choice. Then cut strips out of green felt. Glue them onto your wreath allowing them to flop off a bit so they mimic the look of leaves. Add bells and other types of decorations as desired.
A Repurposed Life Preserver
Life preservers already feature the perfect wreath shape. Add a bough and other festive elements. Attach a hook to the back for hanging and you are ready to complete a nautical Christmas design.
Christmas Bow Wreaths
This one is simple. Cut a wreath shape out of cardboard. Then stick a wide variety of adhesive Christmas bows to its surface. It’s a great way to recycle old bows.
Wreaths are fantastic Christmas decorations. Now that you know how to make them, you can put them all over your home. How will you be integrating them into your holiday design?
