DIY Winter Wonderland Christmas Wreath


Hi Loves

So, I've been meaning to expand the subject matter of my posts but I haven't had a chance to get to it until today. What better way to expand than to address a wonderful problem that most of us have every holiday season. So here is the first HOME DECOR post ever!! Yay!
 
So here is an affordable wreath so that you can make your entryway into a winter wonderland without breaking the bank. Being a newly wed, I can't justify spending too much money on seasonal decor. That also doesn't mean that I must dress our home in decorations that you can find anywhere. It's no secret that I love unique things but uniqueness, in decoration terms, sometimes goes hand in hand with expense. My goal with this post is to show that you can have a special wreath to adorn your home without spending too much money. So here goes nothing! I'll provide a link to all of the pieces and parts the best of my ability.


                                                             Natural Rattan Wreath

So I started with this sturdy, full wreath of made of thin twisted branches. This particular wreath is 20" in diameter and cost about $24 at Hobby Lobby. I took advantage of their 40% off coupon that you can find on their website. Just click Natural Rattan Wreath in the link under the above picture and it will take you directly to the product.

At this time i just went ahead and spread everything out and i wanted to use, removed all the tags (cause it's tacky if the tags are sticking out). I really wanted to be able to keep this wreath for a while so I decided to not hot glue anything to it moving forward


All the goodies!! :D

Product list:

Greenery- I used frosted/flocked pine with pine cones 
Flowers-  Snowed roses in grey and white
Pine cone twig - I couldn't really find the same one online but something similar
Berry twig-  I had mine from for a while but here is something similar
Ribbon- I chose a navy one. About 2 inches wide and satin.
Sheers
Scissors

Some of the items that I used I couldn't find on the websites or I had from previous projects and couldn't narrow down the store I got them from, either way, I tend to do most of my shopping at either Hobby Lobby or Michaels so you should be able to find everything you need at either of these places.

Should look something like this after the flocked pine picks are put in.

So you wanna start off with the flocked pine greenery picks. Find the spot you want it at and start pushing it through the gaps in the branches. You might have to be a little aggressive because this is a pretty full and tightly wound wreath.

With snow covered roses are added!!

Now to trim the roses. I kept a few inches of the stem because you will need to make sure they anchor in among the branches if you followed my lead and are going without glue. If you ARE gluing, however, you can just pluck the flower off the stem and glue that on this part of the step.

This is with the pine cone twig added.

Once the pine cone twig is added to the wreath, it adds so much more to it, adds alot more texture and just perfectly finished the look. I also went ahead added some of the rose leaves and few red berries that were laying around to the wreath to finish the look off. I sadly got distracted and forgot take pictures of that however in the finished look, you'll see what a difference adding some red berries brings to the wreath. Honestly after this I just added the ribbon and tada! You're done!!

Designing your own decor like this is subject to your own tastes, of course. You might like how I did it but you can use the same tips to design a different wreathe for your own home. Either way, I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial and I really hope that you will leave your comments and share your own designs with me. Thank you very much! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
