Tutorial: Making A Christmas Wreath
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.
If you wish to do your own wreath from scratch, these are the steps:
1. Fake pine garland
3. Floral tape (green)
4. Planter’s twist-tie wire
5. Christmas ornament and light of your choice.
6. Hot glue gun
Prepare the wire in round shape and wind them with green floral tape.
I used a 10 inches stew-pot to roll the wire in 2 rounds so that the shape is firmer.
Continue the gluing with Holly berries, pinecones, beads garland etc.
Finally, hang the ornaments to the wreath.
