How to Make a Wreath
Learning how to make a wreath is easier than I thought! I am constantly looking for ways to use our Christmas Tree clippings in our home. I love the smell of Christmas Trees and hate wasting any part of them! While I made my wreath using tree clippings, you can use any greenery you want to make a DIY Christmas Wreath!
Step 1: Trim the Clippings
To start, I trimmed my clippings down to smaller, more manageable pieces. I kept a variety of sizes, but the large branches weren’t going to cut it!
Step 2: Glue the Clippings
Next, using a hot glue gun, I glued the clippings onto my foam circle. I ensured to go in a pattern so they clippings all faced the same way.
TIP: While I had a good pile of clippings to work with, as I went around the DIY wreath I would try different size clippings before gluing them on. I found a couple times I didn’t have the right size and ended up clipping more pieces as I went!
Step 3: Add Embellishments (optional)
I didn’t want my wreath to be too fancy, but I wanted a pop of red to make it more Christmassy. I decided to use a thick checkered pattern ribbon to hang my wreath with!
NOTE: I only covered one side of my foam circle – if you are doing to display it on a glass door or mirror, I recommend covering both sides!
