Welcome back to another Blogmas post. Today I am ticking an item off of my Christmas Bucket List and challenging myself to make a Christmas wreath. I have never made one before but I love how pretty everyone else’s looks and so I thought I would give it a try.
What you will need
I wanted to keep this really simple and worked on a small budget which reflects what materials I have used. If you buy lots of things, obviously the price you spend will also increase. Would you believe me if I told you that for this project, I bought two items. The full price came to £6.75, although I did have a voucher code which brought that price down to £5.06.
The first item I bought was a plain frosted wreath base. I chose this over the wire version because there wasn’t much of a price difference and I knew the frosted one would bulk out the wreath more. The second thing I bought was green wire to secure everything in place. To decorate my wreath, I found ribbons which I already had at home from old Glossybox subscription boxes and then turned to nature for them rest. A quick walk around a local park and I had plenty of rustic things I could add to my wreath.
How to make it
Now this is the fun bit. Before I got started on the decorating, I needed to work out how I wanted to hang it once its done. For this wreath, I used a thicker ribbon and tied it around the top. Once this had been decided, it was time to get decorating and so I laid out everything on the table so I could see exactly what decorations I had.
I placed a couple of the larger items and attached these in place before starting on the smaller items. Everything is secured with the green wire I bought so that I can remove them and change it for something else if I need to. To add a bit of sparkle, I tied some of the ribbons I had found into little bows and placed them in amongst the other decorations.
My final thoughts
I had so much fun making this Christmas wreath and I think I will definitely do some more themed ones next year. I quite like the idea of doing an Easter one, with little eggs and bunnies. This would make such a great festive task that all the family could get involved in. If you do make one, tag me on Instagram or Twitter because I’d love to see them.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another Blogmas post. It would mean the world to me if you could subscribe to my blog, because I am trying to reach a new goal by the end of this month.
