We love the festive cheer a Christmas wreath brings to the home so in this round up, we’re bringing you all our favourites… DIY style!
We’ve found the most beautiful, easy DIY Christmas wreaths from traditional to contemporary, colourful to quirky, and every style in between. Let the DIY festivities begin!
Baby’s breath and berries
Keyanna from East + Lane created this simple and long-lasting natural wreath using fresh Baby’s breath, berries and a hessian ribbon. She says it takes under 10 minutes to make and the Baby’s breath dries beautifully or can be kept fresh by spraying occasionally with water.
One of our absolute favourite non-traditional DIY wreath ideas is this living succulent wreath that Mikahl of Maddison Bloom created. This affordable DIY is loads of fun to make and the best part is, it will continue to live well past the festive season!
For a more minimalist succulent wreath idea, we also love this Kmart hack Christmas wreath that Amanda Massey shared in the Kmart home decor & hacks Australia Facebook group. She says, she simply attached sphagnum moss with a fishing line to the Kmart wicker wreath and used a hot glue gun to secure the succulents in place. Once Christmas is over, you can remove the succulents from the wreath and re-plant them 😉
Berry with a native Australian twist
Those of you who love colour will surely want to give this stunning Christmas wreath a crack! Combining traditional red berries with an array of native Australian flowers, and some tassels thrown in just for fun, this is one of the prettiest DIY Christmas wreaths we have ever seen.
Traditional wreath with modern twist
This spectacular modern Christmas wreath uses Christmas ornaments rather than the traditional look of florals and foliage. And the best thing is you can customise this tutorial to suit your Christmas colour palette.
Quirky balloon wreath
Well this one from Studio DIY is just FUN! Make your Christmas wreath pop (perhaps not literally!) with this colourful and quirky festive balloon creation.
Wreath with faux flowers and fairy lights
Using a similar method to the ‘Traditional wreath with modern twist’ above, Antoinette Favory created this stunning Kmart hack Christmas wreath switching out ornaments for faux flowers and tree picks, and finishing the look with a string of LED fairy lights. The red berries and pine cones are so festive while the gum nuts and other artificial stems give it a contemporary feel. Best of all, you can find all these items at Kmart!
Elegant gold wreath
This gold beauty just screams elegance yet surprisingly, uses mainly artificial plants and gold spray paint. This DIY from Sugar & Cloth even includes instructions for a garland to create even more Christmas joy around your home.
Organic minimalist wreath
If your style is more natural and rustic, this one from Camille Styles is for you. It uses greenery and berries from the garden, making it an affordable yet spectacular organic Christmas wreath.
Felt berry wreath
This sweet and simple wreath is a DIYers dream. Lia Griffith shares this woodland berry bliss creation, using ready-made felt balls, making it a simple yet gorgeous project to get your home ready for a whimsical Christmas.
Coastal chic wreath
Caitlin from Beach Road Interiors takes thrifty to the next level with this incredibly clever wreath. She shows us there’s no need to spend up big, or spend anything at all!
She just added dried foliage from her garden to a piece of coastal art already displayed on her wall. It gives her home that festive feel while still staying true to her coastal interior.
To ditch the tradition and tackle this DIY, simply tie dried foliage with zip ties to a piece of art in your home. And the best bit? No need for the dreaded post-Christmas decoration pack up! This piece can stay up long after the holiday season is over.
