DIY Christmas wreath


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas (I love that song)…

There’s nothing I love more than decorating for the holidays. There’s just something about having your home decked out for Christmas. I love it! :) So far I’ve showed you my no sew ruffled tree skirt and my DIY Nativity display. Today I’m going to show you my “new” wreath.

This year I recycled last year Christmas wreath. I didn’t want to buy a new wreath, so I just pulled off the beads from last year and started with a clean slate. Then I headed to Jo-Ann’s and picked up some new pieces to put on my wreath.

This wreath was super easy to make… it only took about 15 minutes.

First I hot glued on berries…

Then I hot glued some pearl picks in…

Next I hot glued on a poinsettia with a  jewel in the middle.

To add a little sas at the bottom, I cut 24 in pieces of ribbon and threaded them through the wreath.

And wahlah! Now I have a beautiful new Christmas wreath in just a few easy steps.

So is your holiday decor all up?

Thanks for reading. Come back soon! :)

    That is so pretty! And I like the jewel added to the middle of the poinsettia! I haven’t even started decorating. Looks like I better get busy! :-)

    What a great Eye for creativity! I have been putting off the decorating at my house. I love Christmas and the lights and decorations, but not the process of putting them up (or taking them down).

    Just hung a bare wreath on my door – you’ve inspired me to dress it up a bit! Love the bejeweled Poinsetta!

    Absolutely LOVE the jewel you used in the center of the poinsettia. It just makes the wreath. Thanks for sharing. Now I want to head to Hobby Lobby and search the jewelry department to see what I can add to mine. :-)
