Handmade Christmas: Rustic Wreath

Handmade Christmas | Colour Saturated Life - www.coloursaturatedlife.com

I love Christmas wreaths…..they are my favourite Christmas decor item. I have a lot of wreaths both handmade and purchased . This year I wanted a rustic stick wreath to go in my entrance so I decided to make my own. The great thing about this wreath is that it was FREE! I stripped down an old Easter wreath to use a base, the sticks I got from pruning our lemon trees and I scavenged the Pinecones from the local pine forests. If you want to make your own follow the tutorial below.

Step One:

Gather your supplies, you will need: Sticks, Pine cones, a wreath as a base (preferably one made from twigs), florist wire, ribbon and hot glue.

Step Two:

Place a row of the sticks around the wreath – I chose to place mine around in a clockwise direction……you want your sticks to protrude out from the wreath.

Step Three:

Once you are happy with your layout glue them down using the hot glue.

Step Four:

Lay down another layer of sticks in the gaps of your last layer. I just did two layers on my wreath plus a few random ones to fill in gaps as I wanted a design that had a lot of gaps……you could easily fill this in to make a fuller wreath.

Step Five:

Add your Pine cones, using your florist wire to attach them. I also added ribbon to hang my wreath but that is a personal preference.

DONE!!!!!!!!!
