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!
Keyanna from East + Lane created this simple and long-lasting natural wreath using fresh eucalyptus. It only takes four steps, and the eucalyptus dries beautifully. Plus it smells amazing!
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 Christmas wreath uses pinecones and fairy lights. Classic materials that have been given a modern feel with the unique design. Best of all you can forage for pinecones… or if they aren’t available in your area, you can generally find them at the dollar store.
Well this one from FunCakes is just SO TASTY! Make your Christmas wreath fun with this edible gingerbread Christmas creation. We love the idea but with the Aussie heat, this one may be better served as a tasty table centrepiece!
Wreath with faux flowers and fairy lights
Antoinette Favory created this stunning Kmart hack Christmas wreath by 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 also includes instructions for a garland to sprinkle even more Christmas joy around your home.
As we know, less is more! If you’re not a fan of the big, full wreaths, there are minimalist style wreaths out there, like this one from Sara D. With small bushes of greenery and florals, this DIY is simple and easy to replicate.
