J is for Jesus Christmas Wreath

5 Materials
30 Minutes

Ever since I saw the Candy Cane wire wreath forms, I wanted to make a wreath with it. But not just a regular peppermint wreath.

So I bought one or two, and it sat around for awhile. Then recently I found smaller ones at the Dollar Tree! Somehow the smaller one wasn’t as intimidating.

When you turn those Candy Cane wreath forms upside down, it looks like a J. And I wanted to make a J wreath for Christmas because J is the first letter of Jesus — Who we celebrate at Christmas time!

I used hot glue to attach wide red grosgrain ribbon to the wreath form, by wrapping it around.

Then I reused this wooden bead and pearl garland I had made for a *** Thanksgiving Centerpiece.***

Yes, I do realize that a candy cane is white with red stripes and that my color scheme is backwards. But it looks Christmas-y, doesn’t it? And I don’t have any white grosgrain ribbon…. or red beads…. so anyway, it’s backwards.

After I added the wooden beads and pearls, I clipped some flocked faux evergreen pieces from a tree someone gave me.

I tied in a loop for a hanger so that I would be able to hang it when I was finished. Scrap ribbon that I’ve saved comes in handy for things like this!

The Dollar Tree had these cute little bows in buffalo plaid. So I bought both colors and I’m glad I did, because the black and white one was perfect for this wreath!

Before gluing everything in place, I laid it out how I thought it would look nice. I thought adding the metal word Believe from the Dollar Tree would be perfect. Do you agree?

So I used some free things, and 3 different things from the Dollar Tree– the wire form, the metal word (which come 3 in a pack) and the bow.

Quite a pretty Christmas wreath/ door hanging for around $3, don’t you think?!

If I get a chance to make a white one with red stripes, I will show you. But for now, I’m busy creating other things…. like painting screens!

    I thank you! You have brought back 'the Reason for the season' which is Jesus. I will be looking for the wreath form, and if I don't find it, I will make something do, because I, too, want a Reason for the Season = Jesus wreath! Blessings!
