Learn how to make a simple Christmas wreath with these step by step directions.

Christmas Wreath Supplies

  • 2 Wire Hangers
  • Floral Tape
  • Floral Wire
  • A bunch of Evergreen Branches (approximately 10-12 inches long)
  • Large Bow

    OPTIONAL
  • Small Ornaments
  • Wired Ribbon
  • Wired Berry Clusters
  • Battery Operated String of Lights

Christmas Wreath Directions

  1. Pull and shape both hangers into a round shape with the hooks at the top.
  2. Bend the hooks at a 90 angle, so that you can hang the wreath over a railing or door.
  3. Put both hangers together and wrap them into one shape with the floral tape.
  4. Starting at the top of the hanger, lay a branch along the circle and wire it onto the hanger structure about 3 inches from either end.
  5. Continue to overlap the branches wiring them onto the hanger structure.
  6. When the entire structure is covered to your liking, add a bow at the top of the hanger structure, just below the hook.

    OPTIONAL
  7. Add string of lights and hide the battery compartment towards the back of the wreath.
  8. Loosely wrap the wired ribbon around the wreath, bending it to look the best.
  9. Wire the small ornaments intermittently onto the evergreen branches.
  10. Wire berries onto the wreath for color.
