So, what are you waiting for? Grab your scissors and get ready. Good luck and start crafting.

How to Make Your Own Christmas Wreath

You’ll need:

  • Wire coat hanger or other type of thick wire that you can bend into a circle
  • Newspaper
  • Tapediy-christmas-wreath
  • Ribbon, scrap material, bows, glitter, tissue paper (anything you have left over that would look pretty on a wreath) You can also use old christmas gift wrappers and christmas gift basket covers.

Instructions

  • If using a coat hanger, bend it into a circle leaving the hook on the top (makes it easier to hang), and if you are using thick wire, bend it into a circle.
  • Roll pieces of the newspaper up so that it can be wrapped around the hanger and tape it together.  Do this to cover all the way around the wire.
  • Start placing your ribbon, tissue paper, and anything else you’ve chosen to use, on the newspaper to cover it. Some Christmas hampers use twigs and woven laces as their design. Feel free to use these old hampers and gift basket covers.
  • Cover the hook of the hanger with ribbon, yarn or material and add a bow if you’d like.
  • You now have a beautiful wreath that you can hang on your door or hang on a wall in your home and it cost you nothing except a little bit of your time.
