DIY Christmas Wreaths!

Get creative this Christmas with our favourite DIY Christmas wreath projects...

t really wouldn’t be Christmas without a wreath on the door. But whilst it’s easy to pick one up in the shops, you don’t have to! Making a Christmas wreath yourself isn’t actually all that difficult and the results can be spectacular - not to mention cheaper. We’ve put together some of our favourite DIY Christmas wreaths to inspire you to make your own this Christmas. 

Pompom Wreath

Okay so this wreath was actually available to buy from Anthropologie (note, it was only available from their US site, not their UK one). But for all this wreath was rather pretty, it did fall on the pricier side. So we thought why not include it in our list of DIY wreaths? You can make your own with a little bit of time and effort, and for a fraction of the cost. You can find plenty of tutorials online and on YouTube that will help you create your own pompom wreath, whether you choose to use a pompom maker or not! 

Christmas card wreath

We really like this spin on the Christmas card wreath from Craftiness Is Not Optional, which uses pegs so that Christmas cards and photos can be displayed around the wreath. Head on over for a full tutorial on how to create one for your own home! But if your talents don’t generally lie in crafting and creating, don’t forget you could always just use wire to create the shape of a Christmas wreath and then attach your Christmas cards or photographs if you prefer to keep DIY efforts simple. 

Nature inspired wreaths

If you’re keen on bringing the outside in and have a love of all things nature, then these two Christmas wreaths might be ones worth having a go at! We really like the idea of a Pine Cone wreath, and you can find a full tutorial here from Shutterfly. As they suggest over on Shutterfly, you can get as creative as you like with your pine cones and paint them gold or even dip them in glitter! Alternatively, you can leave them as nature intended - the result is just as lovely. 

You can also use greenery to create your own Christmas wreath - perfect if you like to keep things slightly more traditional and true to the original Christmas wreath. We really like this one from goodhousekeeping.com that incorporates artificial granny smith apples!
