I know I said I wouldn’t do any Christmas posts early, but I really couldn’t wait to share my Christmas wreath! Since I’m technically only a few days early I don’t feel that bad, because I could’ve been posting things right after Halloween. And we all know how I feel about that! (If you don’t, click here)Do you remember the Fall wreath I made back in September? Well, I liked the burlap so much that I decided to just take the decorations off of it and use it for Christmas. Not only was it super easy, but it was also cost effective.
Here is what I used for my wreath:
-Burlap Wreath (already owned)
-Poinsettias (you can buy them at any craft store)
-Small wooden letters (you can buy them at any craft store)
-Acrylic or WoodCraft paint for the wooden letters
-Wire and/or string
-Red and white stripped ribbon
-Green sparkly ribbon
I used this wreath for inspiration and got started assembling my own. It was pretty easy once I figured out how I wanted everything to look and got the ribbon in place.
I really loved the idea of using wooden letters for a small message that would hang on the wreath. And it was pretty easy to glue the jute string on them so that they could hang (loosely) once attached to the wreath.
Once I put all the components together, I sat back and took a look at the wreath.
Later on I did add some gold bells to the bow and I also straightened it a bit, but otherwise it looks the same.
Do you put up holiday wreaths? When do you put them up and when do you take them down? I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below!
