DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIY CHRISTMAS WREATH?
Each year I’m always looking forward to having a go at some new creative Christmas projects. And when it comes to Christmas wreaths, you really can’t go wrong. I really love a beautiful Christmas Wreath, and there are just so many kinds of wreaths you can make!
The idea behind this DIY Christmas wreath was that I really wanted to make a simple Christmas wreath with some of the materials I already had in my (overflowing) craft supplies.
I knew I wanted a Christmas wreath that would fit in nicely with the rest of our Christmas decor, but with some added farmhouse inspiration, and I also wanted it to be white and soft!
And when it comes to Christmas decorations, I really like using natural materials, such as wood, wool, natural rope, and anything I can naturally find outdoors.
HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE DIY CHRISTMAS WREATH
What you’ll need:
Start with preparing the wire, cut it and then shape the wire into a large circle. I used approximately 85 cm (34 inches) wire, but you can, of course, make the wreath as small or large as you want.
Tie the two ends together, and make a small loop. This is smart to do from the very start, so that you can easily hang up the Christmas wreath when you’re finished with it.
Cut two more wire lengths ( same length as you used previously), and twin these around the wreath to sturdy it. Fasten the wire ends at the top of the wreath.
Now you need to cut nine pieces of jute rope. My pieces were about 95 cm (37.5 inches), but be sure to adjust the lengths according to how large you’re making your Christmas wreath. Section the ropes into three groups of three ropes each. Tie a knot, or use a rubber band to hold off the end of the ropes together. Then braid three pieces of rope, and then do exactly the same with the two other groups.
When you’re finished braiding the three braids of rope, gather them all and braid them all together into one large braid.
Take the jute braid that you just made and start wrapping it around your wreath. When you’re all around the wreath, you can use a small piece of wire to fasten it at the end.
The next step is to cut up your wool yarn. Cut the yarn into 36 pieces, 160 cm (63 inches) lengths. Group the yarn into two groups of 18 each. Gather the first group of yarn lengths, and twist it all around your wreath. Now finish by doing the same with the remaining yarn lengths. If you want an even larger and chunkier Christmas wreath you can add one more layer of yarn.
Cut off any excess yarn, and be sure to fasten the yarn ends using a little bit of wire. Adjust some of the yarn and use it to cover and hide any visible wire.
Use some more jute rope, cut off a nice length and twist it all around your Christmas wreath. Tie the two ends together in a small knot at the top, fasten, and hide the ends under some of the wool yarn.
And the DIY Christmas wreath is almost done! You can leave it like this if you like a simplistic clean styled wreath, or you can add some extra decor elements if you like.
Since it’s a Christmas wreath I really wanted to add a little pop of red color. So I cut out a simple heart using some red cardstock paper, and then I used some clue and just clued the wooden deer onto the heart. I punched a small hole through the cardstock heart and used some of the jute rope to hang it on to the Christmas wreath. I also made a simple bow and then glued it on to the wreath.
I ordered a couple of these beautiful wooden reindeer cutouts some while ago, and I’ve just been dying to use it for a Christmas project ever since I bought them. I just love the little added natural Christmas feel it gives the Christmas wreath, it’s super simple but so beautiful!
I can really recommend this shop for all kinds of beautiful wooden shapes. They have really budget-friendly prices and all their wood cutouts come in different sizes. You can even order custom wooden cutouts for any of your special projects.
