This year has been the year of wreaths for me! I have really enjoyed decorating wreaths for the different seasons and sharing those tutorials with y’all. So when I posted the picture of my Christmas wreath on Instagram, and one of my friends asked if I was going to share the DIY, of course I said “yes”. I know Christmas is just a few days away, but if you’re looking for an easy DIY wreath that will brighten up your door before the holiday guests start arriving, this is the wreath for you! Not only did I complete it in less than an hour, but it was over half the cost of a pre-made one at the store. And, best of all, it’s completely customizable. You can choose the colors, flowers and arrangement that you want… It just doesn’t get much better than that!
I absolutely love how this wreath turned out! It’s different from the other ones I’ve made, because I decided to go with a more pine-y look. I bought all of my flowers and decorations at Hobby Lobby, and you better believe I took full advantage of their 50% off sale on all things Christmas! This entire project only cost me about $15, which is a steal when it comes to wreaths. I went with a gold, red and white theme, and I think I did pretty good if I say so myself. I did grab three flowers from the regular floral section of the store, but they were also on sale. Score!
4-5 bunches of fake flowers (try to get a mixture of small, large and filler flowers/greenery)
18″ pine wreath
Hot glue gun and glue
1. Cut the flowers you want to use off their main stem using the scissors or wire cutter (I recommend a wire cutter because you’ll ruin the scissors). Leave about 3-4 inches of the individual flower’s stem- it makes building the wreath easier.
2. Stick in the wispy, long pieces along the part of the wreath that you want the flowers. Wrap the stems of the pieces around the wire frame of the wreath to secure in place.
3. Place your flowers where you want them. I tried to keep things balanced so it wouldn’t look weird. To place them in the wreath, I just stick the flower’s stem into the wreath as far as I can and bend them around the wire frame to make sure it stays firm and in place.
4. Fill in with smaller flowers and a few other longer, wispier pieces. Attach to the frame like before.
5. Rearrange and add/remove until you get what you like!
6. To ensure the flowers don’t fall out with the wind, get a hot glue gun, and glue the flowers onto the wreath. Try to focus on the base of the flower and the stem.
7. Hang up, step back and enjoy the fruits of your labor!

I love the addition of roses, genius! Very beautiful layout of the stems and flowers
Thank you so much, girl! I wanted to have something to make it pop, and I thought the roses did the trick.
That is a beautiful wreath you have pulled together. This type of wreath could stay up all winter long. Dual decorating is always a plus.
Thanks Candy! I think so too… The red and gold really works well for all winter, doesn’t it?
That’s such a gorgeous wreath! I don’t usually see roses incorporated into Christmas decor, but I love it!
I wanted to do something a little different, and needed a flower to make it pop. I love how the rose stands out! Thanks for stopping by Jamie. :)
That wreath looks amazing! And it doesn’t seem TOO intimidating to make. Definitely want to try this next year!
Aw thanks Rachel! It was seriously SO easy to make. Send me pictures if you end up making one!
It looks great and seems easy enough that even I might be able to do it!! Awesome job!
That was definitely my goal! I wanted to make a wreath that was easy and looked beautiful too.
That wreath is beautiful and it really makes the front door look festive!
Thank you Emily! I definitely love how bright and cherry it looks.
I say it every year.. “I’m gonna make a Christmas wreath myself this year”. Well, this one is beautiful, maybe next year! haha
You need to! They are seriously so easy to make, and you will love that YOU made it, not a store or big company. So worth it :)
OH my gosh this wreath is so pretty! You did awesome!
Thanks Neely! I love doing crafty things like that. :)
I love Christmas wreaths. This one is so gorgeous and seems so doable as a DIY. My front door has been missing the Christmas spirit, so I think I need to make this :)
Thanks girl! Did you end up making it?
I love how full and beautiful this wreath is! Thank you for sharing a tutorial on how to make one!
Aw thanks! I hope to share more tutorials this year. They are so much fun, and give me motivation to make some DIY stuff for my place. :)
So pretty! I’ve yet to make my own wreath but maybe next year :)
Thanks! And they are so easy… You should totally give it a try!
It’s so pretty on and off your door!! Thank you for sharing. Maybe one day I will be able to create these wreaths (and hang it up without Colton knowing. haha)
Aw thanks Jessica!! You should! And tell Colton that I gave you permission ;)
Yes! The gold is my favorite! Thanks for stopping by, Kathryn.
Wow thank you so much Jasmine! Your sweet words made my day <3 And that's honestly one of the main reasons I make my own! I get SO picky (and cheap) when it comes to wreaths.
