Sharing a quick DIY Christmas Wreath as part of a miniseries. I love wreaths and always try to find budget friendly ways to make my own. Wreaths can be an easy craft to get comfortable with as it does not require you to have a lot of tools. Typically, your supplies, floral wire cutter, floral wire and scissors is all you need to make a beautiful masterpiece.
You will need the following supplies:
- Wreath Ring (I used 19 inch)
- Beads (I used 25mm and needed 66)
- Greenery of your choice
- E6000 glue
- Floral Wire
- Floral Wire cutter
First Step is to cut your wreath ring with your wire cutter. The spot where the wreath ring is fused together is usually easiest to cut.
Once done start putting the beads on. This 19 inch wreath needed only sixty-six 25mm beads to fill.
After all the beads have been applied. The next step is to glue the separated ends of the ring together with E6000 glue and let it sit for about an hour. While it will not be fully dried, this will give you enough hold to continue working on the wreath.
It’s time to start applying the greenery. I always like to get a visual of the placement before attaching permanently. This allows to make any necessary adjustments and save time. Especially important if you are making an asymmetrical wreath.
For this project my first layer consisted of pine picks and I attached with floral wire.
The next layer was cedar picks. I also attached with floral wire and reinforced the attachments for both layers.
Once this was done, the next step was to attach the ribbon. Using the ribbon to cover the unfinished part of the wreath by wrapping it around the entire section. After completing this, you tie a symmetrical bow and let sit for a couple hours (overnight) to the wreath glue can dry.
The wreath is done and ready to use. I loved working on the project because it quick and the finished product is beautiful.
I also love that you can hang the wreath in different ways. What do you think?
