Directions for How to Make a Wire Christmas Wreath
~Wire wreath form
~Hot glue gun (optional)
~Fresh or faux greenery
Step 1-Secure the greenery
Wire the end of the greenery to the wreath form to secure it on.
Go further up the branch and secure it again with wire, Try to find a spot where the greenery can hang over the wire to hide it. Secure any spots of the greenery drooping off the form with hot glue, if needed.
Step 2-Begin Other Side
Take a new piece of greenery, and follow the same steps to secure the greenery to the other side of the wreath form.
Step 3-Attach Ribbon and Bells
I laid the ribbon underneath where it was to be tied just to have it there and ready. Twist a piece of wire between two bells and wire it onto the wreath form.
Tie a knot or bow with the ribbon around the wreath form, hiding the wire. Since my ribbon was sheer, I added an extra piece of ribbon to hide the wire.
That’s it!!! It took me about 10 minutes, and cost me under $20 to make! I was able to use wire and a hoop wreath from my stash.
I couldn’t stop! Here is another wire wreath I made! You can do greenery on the top, or on one side! You can do any sort of ribbon or bow! String dollar store jingle bells, or vintage ones! Be creative and have fun!
