Common Questions about Making Christmas Wreaths
How do I choose the right wreath size for my front door?
Choosing the right wreath size depends on the scale of your front door. As a general guideline, opt for a wreath diameter that is approximately one-half to three-quarters the width of your door. Here’s a great diagram and resource for choosing the perfect size wreath. This ensures that the wreath doesn’t overpower the door while still making a statement.
Can I use real greenery instead of faux for my wreath?
Absolutely! If you prefer the scent and authenticity of fresh greenery, feel free to use it. Keep in mind that real greenery requires more maintenance and may not last as long as faux options. However, the natural beauty and aroma it brings can be worth the extra effort.
Here’s what you’ll need
One of the best things about this holiday DIY project is that it requires minimal supplies that are easy to find at the Dollar Tree and crafting tools that you make already have.
- 18-inch grapevine wreath form (I got mine from Joann’s when they were on sale 3/$10)
- Hot glue gun / glue sticks
- Wire cutters
- Dollar tree floral picks (buffalo check ornament picks (3), lamb’s ear picks (2), flat holly with red berries picks (4), greenery picks (there are a few different ones, I got some with snow whitish snow on them, you will need 4 of them)
- Red and Black buffalo check bow (I got mine from the dollar tree for $3, it wasn’t a dollar tree plus store but they had a few of those items in the store. If your store does not have one, dollar tree does carry red and black buffalo check ribbon and you could make a ribbon)
Christmas Wreath DIY in 3 Steps!
Step 1. Attach the bow to the grapevine wreath centered in the middle of the left side of the wreath. If you are using a pre-made bow then it usually comes with a floral wire attached, if not then attach bow with hot glue or floral wire. If needed, fluffing and shaping your buffalo check bow will give it a fuller appearance
Step 2. Slide your faux greenery pieces closer to the top of the greenery and trim them to your desired length. Trim the holly, lamb’s ear and buffalo plaid ornament picks leave about 2 -3 inches to weave in between the grapevine wreath.
Step 3. Begin layering and alternative the greenery, holly, and buffalo check ornament picks to create depth and texture around the top and bottom area of the bow.
