Today I am sharing the simplest DIY Christmas wreath EVER. It can be assembled in 5-10 mins flat while drinking hot chocolate and blasting Bing Crosby. No glue gun required. And… if that isn’t enough to get you in the Christmas crafting mood there are lots of fun crafts from my friends below!
DIY Simple Christmas Wreath

- faux evergreen wreath (DLUX Wreath 18″ Green Pine Artificial (3 Pack))
- pinecones (Ponderosa Pine Cones 8/Pkg-Natural)
- fresh magnolia leaves (27” artificial magnolia leaf picks)
- fresh holly (100pcs Artificial Red Holly Berry 10mm Pick Branch Wreath For Christmas Tree Decoration for Christmas tree for wedding party)
While decorating our dining room for Christmas it occurred to me that I really wanted a new Christmas wreath in this space. Well, there was no way that I was going to be able to talk Jason into letting me buy one so I decided to make one of my own.
As a side note… there is something about Christmas crafting that helps me get into the Christmas spirit :).
I had 2 faux evergreen wreaths left over from when we took out bi-fold doors in the kitchen so I decided to use one of those to make my wreath.
The problem was it really didn’t look good enough to be the focal point of my dining room mantel. So, I grabbed some fresh magnolia leaves and red holly berries from our yard to give my wreath more color and help make it look real!
I left enough of the stems from the magnolia leaves and holly berries to tuck them into the faux wreath and so I didn’t have to glue them on.
(I wanted to be able to reuse this wreath in the future)
Lastly, I added pinecones left over from another project to my wreath. I took advantage of the wire branches to wrap them around my pinecones.
I just love the look of how my simple Christmas wreath turned out on our dining room!
