Last year I’ve decided to have a natural Christmas. No plastic, only natural and recyclable materials. And let me tell you, it’s been so much fun so far! I’ve never made a wreath before, but it turned out such a success! I can’t wait to tell you how to make a Christmas wreath step by step. It’s unexpectedly easy to make, gorgeous, and absolutely for free!
Step by Step Christmas Natural Wreath for FREE~
First, you need to gather your materials. Take a walk in the park, in the woods, or in your backyard. For this Christmas Pinterest worthy wreath, you’ll need to find a bunch of flexible twigs, some greenery – (fur branches, eucalyptus, holly berries), pinecones. Whatever you have on hand and nearby.
You need to make sure that your twigs are flexible enough to bend a little.
Put a bunch of twigs together and tightly wrap the floral wire around.
Continue banding over your twigs, simultaneously adding more as you go and connecting them with floral wire.
Decorate your natural Christmas wreath. The possibilities are endless. You can use greenery, pine cones, yarn balls, ornaments, burlap. Literally, whatever you want and have nearby. I had fur branches, holly berry branches, and pine cones. And that was more than enough.
Try to distribute pine cones evenly and glue it in the end.

Hi April, this is lovely and helps to keep the cost down of wreaths. The idea can be used for many of our holidays. One tip please. There are many "safe vines" to make the base circle and you can add small twigs to get the same look. If the vines or the twigs used are a bit dried out you can soften them to shape them in hot water. Let them soak and you will know when they are pliable enough to shape. I do this with the base grapevine wreaths I make. Thank you for sharing such a lovely outcome and idea.
