Hey Friends!!

Now that Thanksgiving is over are you all ready to dive into Christmas decorating?! I sure hope so!!

I’ve been busy putting up all of our Christmas decor over the last few days and I plan on sharing every last bit of it on the blog! 🙂

I absolutely ADORE this time of year & the coziness of our home!  There is just something about the white twinkling lights of the Christmas tree glistening at night that warms my heart!  Don’t you agree?!

LOVE it!!

Today I want to share with you this Simple DIY Christmas Wreath that I made for our front door over the weekend……

Pin It

What do you think?! 

I kinda love the way it turned out!

And the best part about it?!

I had most of the supplies already on hand, so it cost very little to make!!

I started with a simple faux evergreen wreath that I already had on hand….

I also had some old ornaments that were falling apart & some little gold accent piece that were on them.  I bought a half of a yard of green plaid fabric from JoAnn Fabrics with a 50% off coupon. I think I paid less than $3.00 for the fabric total.

I just cut enough fabric to wrap the ornaments in and used a little hot glue to adhere the fabric to the ornament. You can see that there is a lot of overlapping on the backside of the ornament….that’s no problem!! The side with all the overlapping will be nestled inside the wreath!

I covered 3 of the ornaments using the fabric you see above and then decided that I wanted a little variation in the ornaments, so I went searching in the boys’ closet and found this!

It was an old brown & green plaid shirt that Parker wore a few years ago & it coordinated well with the other plaid fabric I had purchased. So I started cutting the shirt & began covering more ornaments….

Once I had all of the old ornaments covered in fabric, I started just placing them inside the wreath….

I also started adding in some other accents that I already had on hand including the pine cones, brown ball ornaments, cream berries, & clear beaded sprays. I added the “D” monogram that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. It was originally $3.99, but I used a 40% off coupon….I don’t pay full price for anything! 🙂

Once I had the ornaments & other accents arranged the way I wanted them, I used a hot glue gun to start attaching them to the wreath….

Then I hung it on my front door….

Here is a closer look at the fabric covered ornaments. I used the gold accent pieces that I had & added them to the ornaments just to give them a little bling! 🙂

The various brown ornaments you see randomly place throughout the wreath were ones that I already had on hand. I used them every year in our Christmas decor….

Another full view of the wreath on the front door….

I also made a little Christmas sign to display on our porch that coordinates with my new wreath! I will be posting pictures & a tutorial of it very soon!! They look great together!

I can’t wait to add some greenery & lights to the front porch next!! Hopefully I will be able to reveal the whole space very soon!!

Do you hang a wreath on your door at Christmas time?!

Do you prefer to make one or just buy one?!

If you have made a wreath for your front door & blogged about it, I would LOVE it if you would leave a link in the comments section of this post! 

It doesn’t have to be a post from this year either!
