How to Make a Christmas Wreath From Scratch in 10 Minutes
I’ve been looking for a good wreath for two years now and I could never find one that I really liked. Well, sometimes I found one that I really liked and then I looked at the price.
Two years was long enough for a search. So when I noticed that Michael’s was having a big sale on greenery, I decided it was time to make one myself.
I always assumed that a wreath would be complicated to make, but sure enough, it only took me five minutes to assemble once the spray paint was dry!
Let’s start DIYing!

DIY Christmas Wreath for Front Door

Step 1: attach your hoops
Decide how close you want your hoops to be.
Use hot glue and floral wire to attach the hoops where they overlap. One of the places will be covered up by greenery, so add extra glue and wire without worrying about how it looks.
Step 2: spray paint your hoops
STEP 3: trim your stems
Trim off the excess stem from your greenery using wire cutters. Note: you need wire cutters. These stems are too thick to cut with scissors. Trust me, I tried.
Step 4: attach your greenery
Hot glue your greenery to the hoops, making sure to cover up where you tied the hoops together. Try to glue as much of the branches down as possible. You can also add some floral wire around the hoops and branches for extra security.
step 5: add the bow
Twist tie the bow onto the hoops, covering up where the two pieces of greenery come together. Our bow already had a twist tie attached. We aren’t going to glue the bow on because we want to be able to change directions with it if we decide to hang out wreath angled.
Step 6: weave your branches
Weave a branch or two on each side through the hoops.
If you want your branches to curve along your hoops, tie a few branches to the hoops using floral wire.
That’s it! Wasn’t that simple? Now you just have to figure out how to hang it. Do you like it centered or angled where the branches are on one side? Be sure to pin the image below to save this project!
