Christmas Wreath DIY

I love looking at all the beautiful Christmas wreathes, but some of them are ridiculously expensive! I always make my own wreathes, usually out of Dollar Tree items. I wanted something a little simpler this year. I got this really cute white and silver wrapping paper at Walmart with reindeer on them so I wanted a wreath to match.Β 

I used these cute little reindeer ornaments and red and black plaid ribbon. I also got these from Walmart. 

These ornaments are so cute! They are made out of cardboard, I think, and are pretty sturdy. However, the bow on the front comes off easily. The first one ripped off as I was taking it out of the package. They do have a little glitter on them which of course comes off and gets all over everything. 

Of course my cat has to check everything out as I go. I turn around for one minute and she’s laying in the middle of my wreath! 

This is the wreath finished. I put it on my front door. I’m terrible at bow making! Minding My P’s with Q’s blog has a great tutorial on bow making. I will definitely be doing it this way next time! She does an amazing job.Β 

I made this one to hang on the frame I already had up. I changed the backing to the reindeer wrapping paper I mentioned earlier. 

This is the view at night. You can see the sliver reindeer better.

  1. lovely wreath Michelle! Oh, how cute that your kitty wanted a closer look! Anytime we do any kind of project in the house, the dogs are right there in the middle checking things out. I think they just want to be included!

  2. Michelle, I really like the wreath…it looks like your buff-colored furry friend does too πŸ™‚ I have a ton of this garland laying around. Our staircase is long enough to wrap up the banister and use up most of what I have. One year, I made an entire length into a wreath for the front door and it weathered pretty well. I might have to take your idea and do that for our front door this year πŸ™‚ My favorite thing is to go shop the Christmas aisle a couple of days after Christmas to snatch up the deals πŸ™‚

  3. It’s so beautiful and festive! Which cat was in the pic? One good(ish) thing about Phyllis being gone is the bother of cats and Christmas trees. I’m sure you experience that a lot.

I love to hear from you!
