Christmas Wreath DIY – How to Make a Holiday Wreath

It’s almost here — my favorite time of year! Since I am a DIY’er, that means I have a ton of creating to do before fall, and to that end, I have already begun making a Christmas wreath I can use to decorate for both fall and winter. In addition, my front door will have a new wreath for the holidays.

If you are like me and have been using the same Christmas wreath for years and want to mix it up, this wreath is perfect since it only takes minutes to make it; it looks and feels cozy too. In addition, it is the ideal indoor Christmas, fall, and winter wreath since you can change the bow for each season and holiday. I have included some more gorgeous DIY Christmas wreath ideas at the end of this post for your ultimate wreath inspiration.

First, gather supplies and a pair of scissors, and that’s it!

I used white-headed pins I had on hand from my sewing stash.

I pinned the yarn’s loose end to the form and started wrapping the yarn around and around the form, pushing each row together to get the best coverage.

In 2 minutes, I had this much covered, and it was so pretty already. When I needed to join one yarn ball to the next one, I tied them together and kept wrapping until the form was covered.

Once I finished wrapping the yarn, I cut the yarn a little longer to make sure I could find my pin.

Stick the pin in the yarn’s last loop and hide it, and it’s a wrap!!! Of course, you could use hot glue instead of a pin.

How to Make a Bow

Bow-making is one of my favorite parts of crafting; however, whenever I teach a class, it is the one thing that most folks want help with; therefore, I made a quick video on this foolproof bow.

Cut all your ribbons to the same length. For this bow, I used three different ribbons, so I cut 2 of each ribbon in 26″ lengths for a total of six ribbon loops with 12 ribbon tails. I cut two burlap ribbons, two buffalo check ribbons, and two red ribbons for this easy bow.

Use the wire ends that you tied the ribbons together to secure the bow to the Christmas wreath.

My favorite part is the fluffing of the bow and trims the ribbon streamers after I have wired the bow to the wreath; however, I could have done it before attaching the bow to the wreath.

I followed a link from Pinterest to this page. It was entitled "How to Make a Wreath Bow - DIY Loopy Wreath Bow." Your bows are absolutely gorgeous. I scanned through the steps to making the loopy wreath and thought that was very thorough and I appreciated it. Then I get to the bow and I see a picture of the ribbons you used, the directions to cut three ribbons (2 of each) into 26" lengths. Then I see the instructions to cut the wire to use to attach it to the wreath. You can delete this comment if you want, but I just wanted to say that I think you skipped a step or two. I still have no idea how you made your bow, which is totally why I followed the length. I'm not trying to be rude or mean... I just thought you might want to put in a step or two on what you did with the ribbon. It was a little frustrating.

Thank you for your comment. That is crazy that some of my post has disappeared. What else will happen in 2020? I will work on fixing it, but until I do please watch the how-to video where I show you how to make that bow using orange ribbon. Have a great day, Kippi
