D.I.Y. Christmas Wreath

christmas wreath headerThis year was the first Christmas that we have spent in our house. We didn’t have much in the way of decorations, and we particularly wanted a beautiful wreath for our front door. I saw so many lovely ones around the shops, but with the price tags in the vicinity of $50 and up, I thought I could do a bit better by making my own. As luck would have it, by the time I got around to it, many Christmas decorations were already on sale (yes, this was still 2 weeks before Christmas!). In fact, this would be a great project to make now in preparation for next year, what with all the lonely decorations still hanging around in stores with their little 50% off stickers! I put this one together for around $20.

I got all the bits and pieces I needed for my wreath from Spotlight – the wreath itself was about $9, the packs of glitter bows and pinecones were $2 each (and I bought far more than I needed!), and the poinsettia candle holder that I deconstructed was about $5. I used some home made gold pinecones left over from my tree too.

I fixed the decorations on to the wreath with a little bit of thin wire, and voila! It added some festive cheer to our home in no time. :)

    Is there anything you can’t do? Looks amazing! And you could put them anywhere in the house, what a great Christmas idea :D

    That’s amazing, :) I made my first one ever this year… http://pixiemaxie.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/weekend-wonderland/

    It cos less than £5. I already had a wire coat hanger which I made into a circle. Then the holly I found outside on a holly bush. I borrowed thin wire to bind them together. Finally I bought some superglue to attach the red berries and pincecones to give it a bit of colour. Sadly unlike your fine specimen, it won’t last until next year! xxx

      Ohh yours is so beautiful, I really love it! We don’t have any Christmasy plants here, so everything has to be fake for me sadly! I’m not sure I’ve ever even seen real holly. Great job on your wreath :D
