Who doesn’t love the classic look of a festive DIY Christmas wreath? Want to make one your own? Here is what you will need:


  • Pruning shears
  • Twigs
  • Floral wire
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fir green branches
  • Pine cones
  • other decoration of choice (ribbons, bows, hawthorn small ornaments)

How to make it: 

  1. Take your pruning shears and head outside to collect some twigs. Tip: Longer ones will be easier to work with. Trim off all the greenery on them.
  2. Once you feel like you’ve collected enough, leave your twigs to warm up a bit inside. This will make it easier for you to work with them.
  3. Now begin creating a wreath frame by taking two twigs and overlapping them by about 1/3 of their length. Twist the ends around one another. Secure each end with the floral wire.
  4. Proceed in the same manner with the other ends, as you adjust them to create the circle size you desire.
  5. Now that you’ve made the wreath frame, begin to add the fir green branches in a pattern you like.
  6. Stick in the pine cones and other decorations with the hot glue gun.
  7. Take the shears again and cut out anything unsightly or sticking out.
  8. Voilà! You have a beautiful new twig Christmas wreath!
