How to Make a Homemade Wreath in Five Minutes!
Every year I dig out my old wreath and sigh. It is so battered and bruised that this year I decided to bin it and start again. Today I’m going to show you how you can make a super easy wreath to hang either in the home or on your front door. I love decorating my home for Christmas and you can see more inspiration in this post here!
You’ll need the following items:
A wreath. Wicker or rattan would be ideal.
Greenery or fake greenery. Purchase some evergreen and holly from your local florist or simply grab some sprigs of fake greenery and flowers from most of the pound shops. if you’re lucky enough to have some of the real stuff in your garden then bonus!
A glue gun. Try Dunelm Mill and The Range if you don’t have one.
Ribbon or twine. Again the pound shops stock more and more crafty bits now. The Works is also a great place to find craft bits too, and pretty much anything for Christmas!
Now I was very lucky indeed to bag a beautiful wicker wreath at a car boot sale during the summer. I paid a pound. Absolute bargain. Keep an eye out all year round for things like this at car boots and in charity shops.
How to Make your Wreath
To make your super easy wreath in literally all of five minutes, take three flowers and glue them onto the wreath. I used silk flowers. They are easy to mould onto the wreath and they sit well. Next uptake two holly sprigs (silk again) and glue them either side of the flowers.
My mum is a florist and she is super duper crafty. She always taught me to arrange things in odd numbers. So here you can see there are three flowers and the two bits of holly – resulting in five pieces. The wreath looks perfectly balanced:
To finish off, add some ribbon or twine. The little wicker star came with the wreath and I thought it looked cute so left it on there but just changed the ribbon.
Have you tried making any Christmas decorations for your home this year? We tried no sew Christmas bunting a few weeks ago and it came out really well! The glue gun came to the rescue again.
