DIY Christmas Wreath

6 Materials
4 Hours

It’s autumn here, my husband is busy cutting back and pruning in the garden. It’s time for us to think about making the most of the resources to hand to create some DIY Christmas decor.

This wreath is super easy to make, you will need a florists wire wreath base, some branches/sticks and scraps of yarn to make pom-poms. You can easily change the colours of the pom-poms and use the wreath any time of year.

To start with you will need a large selection of stIcks/branches cut to 6-9” lengths, my husband used garden shears (please use appropriate footwear when doing this).

Attach these to the wire frame, you can use fencing nails and a hammer or alternatively an electric staple gun- you can see both methods in this image. We settled on the staple gun although some staples needed a little extra hammering.

Next the hard part - decisions around decorating. After some deliberation we chose to use two sizes of pom-poms made in a selecting of Christmas/autumn colours. I highly recommend using a pompom maker when you have a volume to make, much quicker than the cardboard ring method. If you are not familiar with a pompom maker check out my tutorial for large fabric pompoms.

Once you are happy with the arrangement of pompom, using a glue gun, glue into place.

    This is so cute. I could see possibilities to interchange out decorations for each season or theme. Great job.
