How to make an easy but beautiful DIY Christmas wreath

Christmas is one of those times of year when decorating the exterior of your home is almost as important as decorating the interior. 

Hanging a beautiful Christmas wreath on your front door is the ultimate in exterior Christmas decor. 

Of course you can go and buy a wreath from a local florist or garden centre. 

But there is something SO lovely about having made it yourself. 

It can be easier said than done though. 

You might never have made a DIY wreath before. 

Then again, you may not be a natural when it comes to craft. 

The biggie for a lot of us is that we just don’t have the time. 

There are a couple of ways round this. 

One way is to schedule it into a social get together. 

That’s how I ended up making my first ever Christmas wreath last year and I’ve just accepted an invite to a wreath making gathering this year. 

The other way to go about it is to find a really simple DIY wreath you can make. 

A wreath that still looks absolutely beautiful, but a wreath that even the hard of crafting can make! 

This is where this roundup comes in. 

I’ve done a trawl around the digital world and put together a list of great tutorials and inspiration for creating easy to make, but beautiful,  DIY Christmas wreaths. 

Take a look through the roundup and see which idea you fancy making this year. 

Get yourself a hot glue gun

You might well notice that there is a tool that keeps popping up in homemade tutorials. 

This roundup post is no different. 

The hot glue gun makes an appearance in most of them. 

With good reason to. 

Hot glue guns make craft work SO easy. 

If you don’t have one, you need to get one!

This is the hot glue gun that we have…

Hobbycraft also has a great selection of hot glue guns

They’ve usually got some really good offers on.

5. Three easy steps Christmas foliage wreath tutorial

You may have noticed that there isn’t a lot of foliage in this roundup so far. 

Well, that’s all about to change here. 

This is a really brilliant tutorial from craft tutorial site Craftsy

I love Craftsy because it makes craft accessible to people like me – who really aren’t very good or confident at crafting. 

This very simple wreath tutorial is on the Craftsy blog, so you don’t need to pay to do it. 

You can keep the wreath simple or you can jazz it up using any number of accessories.
