It’s Day 1 and we are sharing DIY Wreath Ideas!
When it comes to DIY seasonal decorating, I like easy. That’s one of the many reasons I love this Snowy Christmas Wreath. This wreath is pretty in plaid with a touch of snow (white yarn) and a few bottle brush trees.
Last year, I made a plaid Christmas wreath to adorn the sled on my front door. We rarely have snow here so I try to incorporate faux snow every chance I get. My sister sent me the sled from Colorado because I had a hard time finding one in South Carolina. I thought I was going to have to use a surfboard instead, but my sister came through for me.
My Snowy Christmas Wreath is made very similar to the wreath above and it doesn’t take long to complete. I find a good movie I previously recorded, turn it on and start wrapping the foam form. Before you know it, you’re done.
Snowy Christmas Wreath
To make the snowy Christmas wreath, you will need:
- 1 Foam Wreath
- Plaid Ribbon
- White Yarn
- Floral Pins (or straight pins)
- Bottle Brush Trees & a Tiny Snowman (I used a mini ornament)
- Hot Glue Gun
Start wrapping the foam wreath with the plaid ribbon, overlapping and pulling the ribbon tightly as you go. Insert a floral pin through the ribbon and into the foam wreath when you first start wrapping.
Leave a third of the wreath uncovered. I admit that I kind of guesstimated on this. It’s all good.
Wrap the uncovered part of the wreath with white yarn.
Tuck the ends in on the back side of the wreath and secure with floral pins.
Glue the bottle brush trees onto the white yarn with a hot glue gun. I removed the little tree stand on the bottle brush trees and just inserted them into the foam wreath. I hot glued the little snowman.
You’re done! Wasn’t that easy?
