Christmas Wreath With Lights and Ornaments

This year I am making my own wreath for  Christmas. Not only 1 but I made 2 identical wreaths, one for myself and another one for my friend.

I don’t usually put up a wreath during Christmas but this year I have to, to substitute my 6′ Christmas Tree which I put up every December. My son is at an age where he is curious about everything, so I suspect he will literally pull everything down, including the tree itself. No way to risk his life with broken baubles as I know he will definitely get to the tree even if I place it at a height beyond his height. He is quite the climber too!!!!

In early December, my 6 year old daughter asked me ” Mum, when are we going to put up our Christmas Tree?” because she noticed that I did not bring her to buy new decorations. “Dear, we can’t put up a Christmas tree this year” and told her the reason above. She accepted the fact with disappointment. Oh no… my heart broke as I knew that she loves December because it is the month that she can decorate the Christmas Tree and see the tree lighted up during the night. So, I decided to make some changes by transferring the decoration and light from the tree to wreath.

I finally got them done, hung it up and lit it up too. Seeing both my daughter and son so happy to see the wreath, made me even happier :)

I also designed and made 2 of the ornaments for these wreath, crochet Christmas Tree (pattern will be given in upcoming post), Holly Berries (instructions are at my previous post). Besides that, I refurbished my old candy cane and jingle bell ornaments by glittering them.

  1. Cute idea and I know what you mean by having a boy so inquisitive! I made 2 wreaths several years ago but needed bigger ones. I used two hula hoop taped together with duct tape for stability and wrapped with garland as you did. I just swap out the bow and ornaments each year for a new look. It was a winner with all.
    Thanks for all of your inspirational ideas!
