This handmade Christmas wreath tutorial is so quick and simple that you can get it made in no time at all so great for those last minute crafters. Let me confess that this year the Christmas crafting started in September and yes I played Christmas tunes in September. The first time I made this wreath it was at the Country Living Fair when I presented some last minute crafting tutorials to launch my Christmas Jumper book. I managed to make that one whilst not really looking and talking to a crowd as well as being very large and very pregnant, it is that easy to make. I have since made another 3 as friends kept asking for them and this year I decided I wanted one for our own home.
a simple handmade Christmas wreath
Despite being quick and simple this wreath does not look amateur. A high end craft for very little time and skill, these projects don’t come around too often. This craft utilises one of my favourite craft materials, sequin ribbon, it adds instant bling. Check out how I upcycled my belly baskets using sequins.
Christmas brings out the crafter in all of us
Every year people get their craft on, in large and small ways. There is something about the holiday season that inspires us all to get making even when for the rest of the year we avoid it. Imagine how sad it is to start your annual crafting only to be disappointed with the outcome. I promise you will not disappointed.
you will need;
- sequin ribbon in a colour of your choice
- double sided tape
- a polystyrene wreath base
- a large glass of sherry (optional)
- Begin by securing the end of your sequin ribbon with double sided tape.
- Start winding. The hardest part of this make is to stop the ribbon from twisting around on itself. This is where the optional glass of sherry may become a hinderance to you keeping things less than wonky.
- Every so often place another piece of double sided tape to stop it moving around.
- Once you get to the end secure at the back of the wreath with some more double sided tape.
There you go I told you it was simple and fast. If you make one please let me see your wreath I really love seeing what my readers make. Tag me over on Instagram or email me an image. For more Christmas Crafts follow this link.
