Just when I thought my Christmas decorating was done, I decided to create another Christmas themed wreath. You can never have too many wreaths. I love my Balsam Hill Vermont White Spruce wreath downstairs, but needed a little something upstairs. So here’s my quick and easy DIY Conifer Christmas wreath.
The Wreath Before
The wreath is a plain white rattan wreath that I bought a while ago. It just hangs on the outside wall of the house on the front verandah.
I think it needed a Christmas touch, to bring a bit of Christmas to the deck. If you want to see how it looked last Christmas, see Christmas Wreath Showcase.
DIY Conifer Wreath Supplies
This is a quick and easy DIY project that took about 10 minutes to complete and only needed a few supplies.
To make this wreath I used:
- white wicker wreath (purchased last year from Choice discount shop)
- Conifer cuttings from my garden
- a pinecone collected from the park
- some wire to tie around the pine cone
- white Christmas tree ribbon $2 from Overflow discount store
I tied a little bit of wire around the top of the pine cone, and twisted it to form a loop. Then I slipped the white ribbon through the wire loop.
I slipped the conifer branches in between the rattan. You could also use wire to attach the branches to your wreath. Then I tied the ribbon with the pinecone around the top of the wreath.
The Finished Wreath
Here’s how the wreath turned out.
I’m really happy with it. I think I might try a gum leaf or eucalyptus version for Australia Day.
If you’re after a quick Christmas DIY, grab a plain wreath and search your garden for some foliage. It’s that easy.
