Monthly DIY Challenge- Simple Christmas Wreath

10 Beautiful DIY Wreaths | Monthly DIY Challenge

Hey, guys! It's the second Wednesday of the month, so you know what that means... time for the Monthly DIY Challenge! This is seriously one of my favorite parts of having this blog. I absolutely love seeing how several different people can take one object or theme and come up with totally different unique and creative ideas! It's incredible! 



This month, our theme is wreaths, which is so fitting for this time of year! Not to mention, I've desperately needed a great Christmas wreath for years now. The perfect excuse to get my butt in gear and make one! Of course with a brand new baby around I needed it to be an easy, quick project. I created this wreath in only 30 minutes! Perfect for a new momma! :)

Materials:

I wanted something simplistic and somewhat rustic. I chose to go with a grapevine wreath as my starting point.

I also found these beautiful wintery floral stems. They include some Christmas tree stems, pine needles, and red berries. I cut the long part of the stem off using my husband's Leatherman Rebar multi-tool*. It seriously comes in handy for so many things!!! He got it as a gift from his best friend a couple of years ago.

I attached the stems onto the wreath using green floral wire. I threaded the wire through the grapevine branches, twisted the wires together, and then looped back through the grapevines branches and twisted again. I cut off any excess wire using the multi-tool.

I attached the branches towards the bottom on the right and left sides of the wreath leaving a space in the middle.

Last, I attached the velvet bow. The bow included a twist tie on the back of it. It's not very sturdy though, so I anticipate having to add some floral wire to the bow at some point.

And that's it! It was seriously so easy to make!

  7. Now Christmas is just around the corner, these simple wreath designs are very handy and easy to create. These designs will serve as as inspirations to students from http://www.urgentessaywriting.com/research-paper-writing-service, who are currently planning to design their classroom.
