Easy DIY Winter Wreaths By Julie Senger There are many people who love to go all out when decorating the entryway to their home, but even those who are more minimalistic about adorning the area around their front door will appreciate a lovely wreath, which is also often the focal point of more elaborate displays. Others also use wreaths in their indoor decor. Here are a few easy winter-themed options you can be proud to say you made yourself! Embellished Grapevine WreathSupplies24-inch grapevine wreathHot glue gun/glue sticks15 1.4-Inch plastic Christmas tree ornament balls in the color(s) of your choice2-6 Decorative foliage picks in the color and style of your choice (quantity will depend on the fullness you prefer)StepsDivide the number of foliage picks you purchased in half. Slide one half into your wreath at an angle (so that the pick doesn’t come out of the other side of the wreath). Moving approximately 7 inches away from the bottom of the first set of picks, slide the other half of your picks into the wreath so there is about 7 inches of wreath space between the bottom portion of each bunch of foliage (the foliage acts as “bookends” for the ornaments you’ll add in step 2).Add a dab of hot glue to the protruding end of an ornament and adhere it to the wreath next to one of the sets of foliage picks (inside the 7 inches of space you’ve left open). Add a dab of hot glue to another ornament and adhere it next to the other set of foliage picks. Repeat this process with the remaining ornaments, working your way to the center of the 7-inch space until it is filled with ornaments.Embellished Pine WreathSupplies24-Inch faux pine wreath3 Large flowers with attached metal clips (color/flower type of your choice)6 Mini bows with attached twist ties (color/fabric of your choice)StepsFluff the stems of your wreath.Looking at your wreath as a clock, clip the first flower in the 2 o’clock spot, the second flower in the 6 o’clock spot, and the third flower in the 10 o’clock spot.Attach two mini bows in the spaces between each of the three flowers in places that are aesthetically pleasing to you, leaving space in the 12 o’clock spot for the hook of the door’s wreath hanger. Wrapped Pine WreathSupplies24-Inch faux pine wreath1 Roll of 21 inches x 10 yards mesh ribbon garland with wired edges (color of your choice)Large premade bow with long attached twist ties (color/style of your choice)StepsLeaving the stems unfluffed, wrap the ribbon garland around the wreath until it is completely covered. Unless you wrap the wreath more than once, it should not take the entire roll, so cut the garland when it is covered to your liking and bend the end of the severed spot around the backside of the wreath.At the spot where the garland was cut, twist the ties of the bow together around the backside of the wreath to help hold the garland in place, ensuring the bow is on the front. You may also want to use a bit of hot glue to seal the severed edge of the garland to the back for extra security. Cozy Scarf WreathSupplies14-inch metal wreath cage2 Fleece scarvesHot glue gun/glue sticks1 Package of berries with twist-tie stems2 Pine foliage picksStepsFold the first scarf in half lengthwiseLeaving about a 12-14-inch tail hanging down the front of the cage, wrap the folded scarf through the center hole and around the cage, overlapping each layer enough so that there’s no space between each wrap.When you get close to the end of wrapping the first scarf, open the fold and cut the fringe off the end of the scarf.Cut the fringe off one end of the second scarf and hot glue it to the fringeless end of the first scarf.Fold the two newly connected scarves in half lengthwise, as you continue to wrap the second scarf around the cage until it is completely covered. There should be a tail from the second scarf to tie together with the tail of the first scarf coming from the underside of the frame (it’s okay if the second tail is a little longer or shorter than the first one).Stick one of your pine foliage picks in between the metal frame and the scarf on the side of the wreath where the first scarf begins, then repeat with the other pine foliage pick on the other side where the second scarf ends.Use the two tails of the scarves to tie a knot around the wreath cage to hold the pine foliage picks in place.Attach as many berries as you’d like to the pine stems and arrange them to your liking. Snowflake WreathSupplies8 Wooden snowflake ornaments (4¾ inches across)Hot glue gun/glue sticksRibbon of your choice for hanging (2½ inches wide x 24 inches long)StepsLay your snowflakes out in a circle with enough overlap to glue them to one another. After you have the snowflakes positioned to your liking, remove one snowflake, add a dab of glue to each of the spots where it connects to one of its adjacent snowflakes in the circle, and stick it back in its place. Once the glue has dried, repeat this step for all other snowflakes until your wreath is fully connected. Fold the 24-inch ribbon in half between two snowflakes and use a dab of hot glue to seal the ends together at the top to create a pretty hanger for your wreath.
