DIY Holiday Wreath - Plus A Giveaway
Now that Thanksgiving is over it is officially Christmas time! I’ve always had a strict no decorating till after Turkey Day policy, this year I cheated a bit and put out some decorations early, but only because I recently bought them and didn’t want to take them downstairs just to bring them back up! But now that it’s officially time to decorate I get to do one of my favorite things, put out a wreath! I’ve never much cared for, nor wanted to pay for, the premade wreaths at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. I guess you could say I’m a bit picky, but mostly I love making my wreaths.
Since my DIY Fall Wreath was such a hit I thought I’d share a DIY Christmas Wreath, but with one difference. I’m going to give away this wreath to one lucky winner! So make sure you enter the giveaway! Because I’m in love with how this one turned out.
What you’ll need:
I use either a grapevine wreath (painted or plain), or a fake pine wreath.
Gather berries, branches, pine cones, whatever you want for your wreath. Make sure you have an idea of how you want it arranged and make sure it’ll match.
-Hot Glue Gun and extra glue
How to assemble:
-First you’ll need to cut off all the tags and lay them out so you can clearly see what you have.
-Next I start to arrange the branches on the wreath (without gluing) just to see how I want it to look and where I want things placed.
-Start cutting. I take apart the bigger branches that I buy so that it has a bit more of a natural, not-so-purposeful look.
-Once you have a design plan you’ll start gluing. This is what takes time because you want to make sure everything is securely attached to the wreath and that it won’t fall off. Make sure you’re putting a lot of glue on and attaching it securely to the wreath body.
-Fill in the holes. After attaching the bigger branches and pieces there are probably going to be some holes where you can see the glue and the base of the branch. This is where the little pieces come in. I used little bulbs to cover big spots and give it a little more character!
-Hang your new wreath! It’s super easy right? And takes less than one nap time to create.
