12 Unique DIY Christmas Wreaths
Nothing says “Welcome, come on in and join the celebrations” like a beautiful wreath for your door. But don’t lust limit them to the front door – they add cheer to walls, mirrors and mantles too.
Making your own wreath is a great way of incorporating a bit of craft into your Christmas. Most of these DIY Christmas wreaths can be done in an afternoon, or a day if you make them more elaborate – all it takes is a wreath base and a dash of imagination.
A Real Gift
Tiddly Om, Pom Pom!
Coming Up Roses
Red roses always look Christmassy. Attach full-blown blooms and petals with wire. Finish with shiny butterflies, berry picks and a velvet bow.
It’s a Hoot!
Spray with a dusting of fake snow then add silver-sprayed fir cones and white skeleton leaves. Finish with wired beads for extra sparkle.
Make your own wreath work a little harder… Print numbered labels for the lids of mini favour tins then glue to a circle of card before filling with sweets.
For this petty paper wreath, simply cut your base from card and then cut leaf shapes in contrasting colours before layering them and sticking in place.
For a scented wreath, combine slices of dried orange and bundles of cinnamon sticks tied with ribbon. Add fir cones, beads and organza bows.
A simple green wreath with extra fir sprigs, red-painted pine cones, bells, ribbon, baubles and little Christmas notes adds that cheery welcome.
All Wrapped Up!
Decorated in icy blue colours and with a sparking crown on top, this Snow Queen wreath is fit for royalty!
Wrap a polystyrene ring with yarn in red and white – the thicker the yarn, the quicker it is. Decorate with stick-on reindeers and trees!
