DIY Minimal Christmas Wreath. Tutorial on how to make a simplistic wire Holly Wreath craft for Christmas. A few simple steps and supplies create a beauty farmhouse wreath.
Holly Wreath Craft
We wanted to add our own ideas to last year’s DIY Christmas Wreaths. Because we are pretty pumped about simplistic crafts, this wreath was just that – easy.
Using wire, felt, and pom-poms, create an easy and elegant Christmas Wreath for the door, to hang from Kitchen cabinets to display to adorn a Christmas vignette in your home.
Christmas Wire Wreath Supplies
Just a few simple supplies make this elegant holly wreath.
- Copper craft wire – 14 or 16 gauge (we used this Copper Wire)
- Craft pliers (this pack of three is highly rated)
- Felt fabric (we used two sades of green)
- Craft glue or hot glue gun
- Pom poms
You can actually find these red pom poms at the Dollar Store!
Christmas Holly Wreath Directions
You can use 14 gauges or 16 gauge wire to make the wreath base. Determine the size of the wreath and circle the wire 2 to 3 times creating the determined round wreath base. Coil the open ends of the wire around the base band. (Our wreath is about 8 inches across.)
Next, cut small pieces of wires from the same wire bundle. These small wire pieces will be used to create branches around the wire base.
Like the image below, take any one of the wire pieces and coil half of the wire around the base tightly. Keep the other half (more or less than half as you prefer) of the coiled wire facing outside or inside of the round wire base.
Continue to add the small wire pieces to the wire wreath base. Keep the branches relatively close (but not too close) to each other. Spread apart like branches on a bush or tree.
Personalize your wreath: You can coil and fill the whole wreath base with the small wire branches or you can fill one fourth of the base like I did.
Next, we chose two different shades of green colored felt fabrics (or you can chose one color if you want to). Trace small leaf shapes on the selected felts and cut them out nicely.
If using hot glue, prepare the hot glue gun. Take a felt leaf cutout and attach it with a small wire branch on its outer edge by gluing any one of the open ends of the leaf. Glue half of the leaf with the wire branch, keeping the other half intact.
Continue to glue felt leaves with the wire branches.
Once the open ends of the wire branches are filled take the remaining felt leaves and slightly fold the half of the leaves along the middle line. This is to give the leaves a cute 3-D look. Apply glue along the fold to secure it.
Now attach the half folded leaves between the previously glued leaves on the wire base. Try filling the wire branches.
Done attaching the leaves? Finally, select some red or white pompoms and attach them on the leaves.
Display and enjoy!
