We cut down our Christmas tree on Saturday and got this awesome tree that had a ton of boughs we wouldn’t be needing. So I decided to make a wreath for our front door.
I started by cutting the boughs down to size and aligning them into a circular shape so I could start wiring them together.
I wired each bough to another one to help stabilize the wreath into the shape I wanted.
Then I added more boughs until I had the basic circular shape I was looking for.
I continued adding more boughs, but smaller now to cover the middle areas that didn’t look great. I made sure to attach the wire to more than one bough to help provide additional stability since the wreath would be heavy with all those boughs.
Next I trimmed the excess off of the boughs so it would look like a nice circle.
Now I have this super full wreath just waiting to be decorated!
Next I added wiring to make a hook for the wreath to hang from when it’s on our front door.
Now for my favorite part, the decorating! Either just grab what extra holiday supplies you have laying around or make a pit stop to your favorite craft store and pick out a variety of decor to add to your wreath. Being a lover of Christmas, I had left over stuff to use up!
Make a few bows!
Drape some ribbon!
Add some colorful Christmas decor and you are good to go! Hang up and enjoy!
