How to Make a Holiday Wreath

One of the reasons that I love autumn is because it reminds me that the big holidays are coming: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas.  That means that I get to be festive :)  My love for holiday decorations is right up there with shoes and handbags.

Here is my step-to-step guide to make a seasonal wreath, and this can spruce up your front door or wall through the end of November.

Step 1: Buy everything you need.  I purchased everything I needed to make my wreath from Michael’s craft store.  I am sure that Jo-Ann’s or your local craft store will have everything you need, and you might already have some of the elements in your house.  Here is what I bought: grapevine wreath, silk leaves and branches, decorative branches with acorns and berries, silk butterflies, and ribbon.  The materials cost me about $22, which includes my splurge item (the leopard glitter ribbon was $4.19).

Step 2: Start arranging the components.  Build your wreath by adding one component at a time.  I recommend starting to arrange the bigger items first, such as the leaves, so that you can fill in the wreath with the smaller items.

Beginning to Build the Wreath

Continue to fill in the wreath with the smaller elements.  Keep building on what you already have, and if something does not look right, just remove the item and place it somewhere else on the wreath.

Step 3: Save room for a bow.  Build up your wreath, until it is ready for the bow.  Save room for a side bow.  The ribbon I purchased has metal wiring in it, so you can really shape the bow however you’d like and it will keep its shape.
