I love a super easy DIY wreath.
There are so many beautiful and complex ones out there, but with all of the other projects around the house on our to-do list right now, simple is key.
Here is my tutorial (if you can even call it that!) for the easiest DIY rustic christmas wreath going.
Here is my favourite wreath trick: Head on over to your local dollar store and check out the seasonal flower/garland section. It’s where you find leaf garlands in the fall, pink flowery garlands in the spring, and festive ones in the winter.
I came across this garland for $2.50 a strand that had pinecones, some faux flocked leaves, and red and white berries. I couldn’t find a replica online, but did find this one that is pretty similar.
When you are looking at your dollar store, the key thing is to find something that a) isn’t tacky, b) looks too fake, and that c) goes with your overall aesthetic.
I bought 2 strands of the garland and pulled out a grapevine wreath I had on hand. If you don’t have a grapevine wreath already, here is one from Amazon that is really well priced (they can be really pricey at craft stores!!).
Remember how I said easiest DIY ever?
You just take the garland and wrap it around your grapevine wreath, adjusting it as your go. Tuck in the edges so that they are secured, but it doesn’t even require glue. Garlands like these have some bend and give to them, but are still sturdy enough to hold shape really easily.
When you’re finished… this beauty!
I hung it on our front door using one of those 3M Command strips and a wire loop at the top of the wreath. It’s got that classic, rustic vibe going for it. Love.
Definitely one that I will be pulling out for many winters to come! Oh, be warned that the faux flocking does flake off a little. So assemble the wreath somewhere that is easy to sweep/vacuum afterwards, and know that you’ll need to store it in a plastic bag or container of some kind.
