It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Toys in everryyy store. Gosh, I just LOVE the Christmas season. A few days ago, I walked into one of our big department stores and boy did I go crazy! There were Christmas decorations everywhere and I just wanted to buy the entire store and take it home with me. If it’s one time of the year where you throw all your financial sense through the window, it’s at Christmas time! This year, in keeping with our financial goals of becoming debt free and building our dream home soon, I left the store and returned home inspired to do my own DIY Christmas Decor. My first for this Christmas season was a beautiful DIY Christmas Wreath. The best part is that my wreath looked just like the expensive ones sitting on a store shelf but the cost of mine was a fraction of the store price.

This DIY Christmas Wreath is a simple handmade project using a few simple materials from around your home. Whatever you don’t have at home can easily be found on Amazon or any local craft store.
This wreath was so easy to make that it literally took me less than 10 minutes! This makes it a fun project that can also be enjoyed with the kids. So gather your craft supplies and let’s get started!
DIY Christmas Wreath
Items you will Need:
- 1 Disposable Plate (plastic is tougher and better to use in this case)
- Green tinsel garland and Red tinsel garland
- Circular Item that is a little smaller than the disposable plate (like a saucer or the rim of a bowl)
- Glue Gun (or any other type of glue that is strong enough)
- Red/Gold Broad Glitter Ribbon OR a Medium-sized Premade Bow
- Merry Christmas Ornament
Step 1: DIY Christmas Wreath
Use the saucer to draw a circle on the inside of the plate.
Step 2: DIY Christmas Wreath
Make a hole and start cutting out the circle.
Step 3: DIY Christmas Wreath
Use your glue gun to put a few drops of glue behind the plate and stick one end of your green tinsel. Start wrapping you tinsel all the way around.
Step 4: DIY Christmas Wreath
When you reach back at your starting point, glue the other end of the tinsel.
Step 5: DIY Christmas Wreath
Use your red tinsel to do the same. As you are wrapping, space out appropriately so that you will remain with alternating layers of red and green.
Step 6: DIY Christmas Wreath
Use your ribbon to make a medium sized bow or you can use your premade bow. Attach it to the top of your wreath with a tie wrap. Then fix the tinsel so that the tie wrap can be hidden properly.
Step 7: DIY Christmas Wreath
Stick your Merry Christmas ornament on top.
Voila! That’s it! You’ve created a beauty!
