The joy and blessings of the Yuletide are upon us and looks like many of us are going to have a white Christmas. But to prepare for the merry season, you must have certain decorations items up at the beginning of the month. Well, many prefer to start decorating for Christmas in November but it’s never too late or early, is it?
One of the most important items of Christmas decorations is wreaths. While store-bought wreaths look good, they burn a definite hole in your pocket and forsake the satisfaction of making things with your family. To that accord, I created 10 easy and inexpensive DIY Christmas wreath ideas for you to try this holiday season.
Each of these wreaths requires a handful of materials and each can be created for under $10. The lowest-priced holiday wreaths on Amazon and Walmart cost over $15. So listen up kids, it’s time to get creative and a little resourceful. Gather ‘round and learn how to DIY inexpensive Christmas wreaths at home.
Paper Poinsettia Wreath
Poinsettias are a beautiful Christmas decoration. While the bright red flowers have been adorning homes and offices for the merry season, the white variety is often missing. So I made some white paper poinsettias, dotted them with glitter, and glued them onto a ring wreath base. Tell me you don’t love it.
Pinecone Christmas Wreath
Pine leaves, branches, and pinecones are an integral part of Christmas decorations. Making a wreath out of these pine parts is simply amazing. First up is a pinecone Christmas wreath, which is secured onto a ring wreath base with craft wire and adorned with pine leaves and colorful ornaments.
Pine Branch Christmas Wreath
Next up is a pine branch Christmas wreath. It is one of the easiest and most inexpensive DIY Christmas wreaths and is created with a handmade vine wreath base with pine branches stuck between the gaps. You can further adorn it with ornaments or festive ribbon bows.
Christmas Village Wreath
Christmas village wreaths and Christmas village trees have become a favorite among holiday enthusiasts in the recent decade. So I tried my hands on a Christmas village wreath. Although minimalistic, this wreath turned out to be so cute that it just might be my favorite among the lot. And it is created by upcycling last year’s pinecone wreath.
Pom Pom Wreath
It might seem unusual to use pom poms in holiday decoration but these furry yarn baubles can add a whimsical charm to your home. You can choose to use one color of pom poms or promote the classic Christmas hues of red, green, and white.
Festive Burlap Wreath
Burlap sheets and ribbons have a myriad of uses when it comes to holiday decoration, one of which is a wreath. Adding a festive touch to the plain, old burlap ribbon is a child’s play and you can create this Christmas wreath with your older kids and other members of the family.
Christmas Tree Wreath
If you are making a Christmas village wreath, then why not try your hands at a Christmas tree wreath as well? I admit, I saw plenty of varieties for this festive craft, but none like the one I made. Without breaking apart from the basic wreath form, which is a wholesome circle, this wreath puts you in the holiday spirit just like a Christmas tree does.
Christmas Ornament Wreath
Many people do not like to reuse their old, outdated Christmas ornaments. For those people, a Christmas ornament wreath is the perfect way to upcycle old decoration items. You can use any wreath base, cover it up with a tinsel garland, glue ornaments, and you are good to go.
Red Poinsettia Wreath
While white poinsettia flowers have a certain charm, they still lack the festive vivaciousness of their red counterparts. To balance things out, I ordered a dozen red velvet poinsettia flowers from Amazon for $3.5, golden berries for $3.5, made a vine wreath base, and reused my last year’s tinsel garland and a plaid ribbon bow, bringing the total amount of this DIY Christmas wreath idea to roughly $8.
Merry Christmas Wreath
There are many popular wreath designs that you can recreate. But having signs and merry words on your wreath has to be one of the most beautiful DIY Christmas wreath ideas. This Merry Christmas wreath sure took some effort and time but you’ll fall in love with the result as I have.
