DIY Wine Barrel Ring Christmas Wreath

Have you ever created something that you just weren’t quite satisfied with? Like, you came up with an idea you knew was really good, but it just wouldn’t come together the way you imagined it?
That’s how I felt with the first version of this Wine Barrel Ring Christmas Wreath.
I decided to redo it, and this was the result! :)
Here’s what you’ll need:

Wine barrel ring

Pine cones

Evergreen-type greenery; real or faux (I used trimmings from my redwood tree)

Red berries; real or faux (I used berries from my Heavenly Bamboo shrub)

Jute twine

Burlap ribbon

Hot glue and glue gun

Cut jute twine into 1 foot strands and glue them on the back of the pine cones as pictured below.
Arrange and tie the greenery at the stems and tie at the top of the wine barrel ring. Slip the red berry stem into the tied greenery twine and secure with a bit of hot glue if necessary. Tie on the pine cones at the top of the wine barrel ring over the greenery and berries; then tie them together to prevent them from slipping down the sides of the ring.
Make a bow out of the burlap ribbon and tie or glue it on the top of the wine barrel ring. Thread a strand of jute twine through the top of the ring and tie a loop to hang the wreath.

As you’ve probably figured out already, this wreath probably wouldn’t be the greatest on a door that is being used as it would bang against and scratch it. This is best suited on a “decor only” door like I used it or on a wall.
