I don’t usually put up a Christmas wreath during Christmas but this year I want 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 reach. He is quite a 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 Christmas decorations. “Dear, we ain’t going to 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.
DIY Christmas Wreath
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
Continue the gluing with Holly berries, pinecones, beads garland, etc.
Finally, hang the ornaments to the wreath.
