So the Christmas time is almost here! I have never made christmas decoration so far and this year was a high time to change it. DIY Christmas wreath is easy and fun to make and makes me smile whenever I come back home and see it on the front door. It was also a first piece of DIY home decor I made for new appartment in Berlin – happy to announce I am moving on New Year’s eve!

Making DIY Christmas wreath

To make your DIY Christmas wreath you will need:

  • a wreath base – I used ready made base from Tesco. You can also use single branches connected with a wire or follow Alina’s from Design Your Life idea and use styrofoam as a base.
  • pine cones – I found mine in a nearby forest
  • a thread, same color as the wreath
  • christmas balls of different sizes
  • all-purpose glue
  • a snow spray
  • a ribbon
  • a rope

Let’s get to work!

First thing I did was covering the wreath base and the cones with a snow spray. I let it dry for about 20 minutes before moving to the next step. Unfortunately snow spray is not as resistant as I thought and lot’s of it fell down while working on my wreath.

Next, I wrapped the wreath with a red ribbon and stuck the ends together with a glue.
