Homemade Christmas Wreath

Hello bloggers! So here is my Christmas wreath! As always it was easy and simple as 1-2-3! Took me about 40 minutes to do the whole project!

What you will need:
  • Wreath
  • Ornaments
  • Poinsettia
  • Holly berry
  • Wooden Letter
  • Paint (I used gold)
  • Hot glue gun

Step 1:
Start unfolding the wreath. This will make it look fuller!

Step 2:
Cut the Poinsettias off the stem and place them in the wreath. I only used three of them so they wouldn’t take up too much space!

Step 5:
Place ornaments throughout the wreath. The ornaments I got had wire attached to the back of them so it made it easy to twist into the wreath!

I love how it's simple and classic. The gold 's' really makes it something special. It has impact without being over-the-top. Love it! I featured you today on my wreath round up.
