DIY Holiday Wreath

Can you believe the holiday season is upon us?  Well, I don’t know about you but I am so very excited!  I love the holidays, and I really love decorating for them.  Today I wanted to show you an easy and inexpensive way to create your own farmhouse style holiday wreath!

We often find ourselves spending a ton of money on wreaths when the reality is you can create pretty great ones on your own with hardly any tools, and much less money.

Here is what you will need:

  • Vine wreath form
  • Faux boxwood, pine, or cedar branches
  • Hot glue
  • Wire cutters

I didn’t want to create a huge wreath so I stuck with a 10-inch vine wreath form.  You want to start by cutting the branches of boxwood, pine, or cedar.

I then took off some of the extra pieces so that all the branches were even and similar in size.  Don’t worry though, you will use these pieces as well.

Now you want to start putting the pieces into the wreath.  The reason I chose to use a vine wreath form is because the form has little cracks that the branches will fit snuggly into.  It is also organic and looks pretty great just on its own.

You want to start by inserting one of the branches into the wreath form.  Once that is in place, you want to repeat this step, spacing them out a few inches since they will overlap a bit.

Try to find a tight spot where they can be inserted so that they stay snug.  If you can’t find a spot, you can use some hot glue to secure it into a larger space.

Once you have gone completely around the wreath, you want to take the extra pieces and use them to fill in any empty spaces.  I used the hot glue gun to secure these since they are small.

Now that your wreath is done, you can add more embellishment to it, but in true farmhouse style, simple is best!  I used a piece of plaid fabric to hang it.  Just tied it in a knot and it was good to go.

Can you believe that making a holiday wreath is that easy?  And this cost me less than 10 dollars!  If you can find the supplies on sale, you are looking at even less!  Not bad for some holiday décor when you have much more important things to spend your hard-earned money.

I hope you try this out!  They really add so much to your décor.
