Hanging a Christmas wreath on your front door is a classic, festive way to decorate your home for the season and to celebrate the holiday. Instead of going out and buying one, here’s how to add a personal touch to your Christmas decorations by making your own. This is a fun family activity for all ages.
A step-by-step guide to making a Christmas wreath
There are many different themes you could go with, but for Christmas, you ideally want to go with Christmas ornaments.
- Your first step is to pick up some wire from your local hardware store or use a wire coat hanger. Shape this into a ring. Using a wire coat hanger is the best way to go because you can use the hook to hang it up once you’re done. Untwist the hanger at the top with pliers, but don’t remove the hook.
- Your next step is to glue either fake or real greenery to your wire frame. Use dried flowers, herbs and leaves. You can also opt to use thick tinsel as your base.
- It’s now time to add your decorations. For Christmas, some festive ideas include pinecones, baubles, bows and various other Christmas ornaments. For a festive display, you can also wrap a string of battery-operated lights around your wreath. Depending on what you choose to decorate your wreath with, you can use hot glue or thin wire to securely attach each item.
And voila! As simple as that – you have a wreath to hang up on your front door or around the house to add a bit of extra decoration for the holiday festivities.
