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.
Done? Do the same with a rope and tie it’s ends together.
Now use the thread to hang christmas balls on the base …
… and do the same with pine cones.
Time to make a perfect bow! Prepare 4 ribbon pieces of different lenghts.
Fold the longest one as shown on the photo and stick it with all-purpose glue.
Repeat with shorter ribbon and stick together with the first one.
Fold third piece of ribbon like that:
And use fourth to fasten it all together:
Stick the bow to the ribbon entangling a wreath base and voila! Your DIY Christmas wreath is ready :)
