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.

Easy DIY 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.

How to make a Snowy Christmas Wreath

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.

DIY Snowy Christmas Wreath is Done!

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 have given me an idea for a wreath. I have a red ice skate with black and white buffalo plaid. Good inspiration.

OMG so many amazing ideas here. Love these. Yours is super pretty and easy to make too so that would be a hit here for sure. Love the linkup and the one with deers on it is a classic with a fun twist.So many great ideas. Thanks!

How cute that is!! I live in Florida and I could change that around a bit for our area. Snow isn’t an option! LOL

I love the red and black buffalo check but my favorite part of the wreath is the “snow” with the trees. Very cute.

This looks like such a cute wreath. I love making my own wreaths for the different seasons and holidays.

I like making yarn wrapped wreaths. They have a pretty look for very cheap! They definitely take a lot of time, though.

This one would be a good one to do with kids or grandkids as they could help wrap the wreath and attach the little snowman.
