Simple DIY Holiday Wreath Project

Making your own wreath for the holiday can be as complicated or simple as you wish. The wreath described below is extremely easy to make and requires few ingredients. As you can see from the picture above the main components are greens and berries with the addition of a ribbon and some dried flowers. The instructions for making this door decoration are contained in an article by Amanda which I found on the American Meadows website.

We’ve decided to give the traditional holiday wreath an American Meadows’ makeover by adding our own sweet touch: dried wildflowers! All you need to easily make your own are some cut greens, berries, dried flowers from your garden, and a wreath form. The best part about making your own wreath is you can customize it with whatever decorations and ribbon fits your style. Once you make one of these, you?ll be hooked!

You’ll need to gather just a few simple items to create your own easy holiday wreath.

Easy Holiday Wreath DIY: Gather Your Materials

Most of the materials for your wreath can be found in nature and/or a quick trip to your local craft shop:

  • Cut greens. Boxwood, cedar, fir, holly, and juniper, are all great options. If possible, cut fresh greens from your own landscape or use clippings from your Christmas tree! The fresher, the better.
  • Berries, pine cones, or other decorative items that you?d like to add.
  • Dried flowers and/or grasses from your garden. I went out and cut a variety of Sunflowers, Grasses, Goldenrod, and Zinnias that had dried right on the stalk. They don’t have to be perfect!
  • 12-18? wire wreath form, depending on what size wreath you?d like.
  • Floral wire.
  • Snips/wire cutters.
