One of the big reasons why I love Christmas is the beautiful handmade decorations season! I absolutely love and enjoy making Christmas wreaths or candle holders! Do you remember my last year's one? You can see the post here.. The mega advantage of creating your own DIY Christmas wreath is that they are super original and you can be sure that no one else in the neighbourhood will have the same door decoration as you! This year I went for a Christmas tree shape wreath, since everyone else has the typical round one up.
You will need:
+ spikey branches +
+ twigs or sticks for the base +
+ string or a thin wire to attach everything together +
+ Christmas outdoor LED lights +
+ decorations, I went for cones and dried oranges +
The first thing to do is create the base out of the twigs or sticks and tie it all up together so that it is solid and stable! The middle stick (which will be the tree stem) should be longer than the whole base (as shown in the photos below). Once the base is ready we can begin to attach the branches onto our base using a string or wire, ensuring the branches are spread proparly and there is no missing gaps. Lastly attach lights and decorations and hang it up on your door!
