Homemade Christmas Wreath

I fell in love with this wreath from Pottery Barn ("made of faux pine and studded with sturdy plastic spheres"), but there was no way I was going to pay $79.00 plus shipping and handling for holiday decoration.

I came up with this quick and easy craft that any do-it-yourselfer can pull together.

Ornaments (I chose plastic shatter proof ornaments for value and so they would last longer)
Floral Wire
Wire Cutter

Simply cut enough length of wire to string through the ornaments and secure them to the wreath. Secure to door with a wreath hanger.

50% off on wreaths - score!

50% off on tree trimmings - double score!

Almost there but looking a little sparse.

A finished master piece!

Total cost for this craft was about $22.00 and that's only because I had to buy a wire cutter. Without the wire cutter it would have been $16.00!


  1. I did something like this for valentines day! Great idea. I took a wire clothes hanger and bought a skein of pink and red yarn. I made pom poms with the yarn and slid them on to the hanger, then bent it into a heart shape. It was super cute, I need to post pictures on my blog.

  2. Sounds cute. Would love to see it. I was thinking about doing it for other holidays too.
