DIY Craft Ring Wreath
A craft ring wreath is an easy DIY holiday wreath by using a circular cardboard base that’s thin yet sturdy. Start by spraying paint it in a color of your choice. Using a glue gun, stick the lightweight decorations to the craft ring’s front.
DIY Grapevine Wreath
One of the most popular DIY holiday wreaths that you are seeing everywhere on Instagram and Pinterest. It’s made of entwined bundles of twigs and sometimes decorated with caspia, eucalyptus pods, juniper sprigs, or snowberries. Simply cluster them into bunches and attach them to the base of the wreath with wire.
DIY Straw Wreath
Another easy DIY holiday wreath is this creative straw wreath. It’s made with hay or padded natural straw to create a full, rounded base that can hold different materials, such as clamshells, dried flowers, or leaves. However, it’s also beautiful to hang it on its own.
If you want to take your straw wreath to the next level this holiday season, use floral pins to attach decorations to the straw wreath’s surface. Continue to do this until the whole frame is covered.
DIY Styrofoam Wreath
Similar to a craft ring wreath, a Styrofoam wreath is lightweight, but with a smooth rounded form. It can be covered with fabric, ribbon, yarn, or any other material. To make a Styrofoam wreath, start by covering the foam with fabric, ribbon, yarn, or spray paint with the color of your choice. Use straight pins to attach the decorations. Repeat this step until the form is covered. Make sure to pin it as close together as you can. You can use smaller ornaments to fill in gaps.
DIY Wire Wreath
Our favorite DIY holiday wreath is the wire wreath. Aside from it’s the most versatile support for wreaths, they’re also strong enough for heavy materials, like citrus fruits and evergreen boughs. Use a single-wire frame if you want a minimalist style wreath, use a double-wire frame for a lush-looking wreath.
The process of making a wire wreath is simple. Lay a small bundle of leaves on the form, and wrap the floral wire tightly around the stems three times. Do not cut the wire because you’ll be adding another bundle of leaves, overlapping the previous one by half. Then, wrap floral wire around the stems. Continue this process until you reach the starting point. Hide the under the form, and secure the leaves with a knot, then cut using wire cutters. Make sure to leave a few extra inches before cutting the end.
Finally, display your DIY holiday wreath with a fish line or sturdy ribbon. Learn more interior design tips and ideas on Omysa’s Design blog. Happy decorating!
