It’s basically Christmas (right?) and I’m already thinking about how I’m going to decorate my home. Good news, all the stores have their holiday stuff on display already, so, while I was shopping the Christmas decor from the Hearth & Hand collection at Target, I immediately noticed the simple Gold wire wreaths wrapped in greenery. First thought was that I needed it and my second thought was I could DIY this holiday decoration so easily. So, I bought a gold metal hoop, some fake Christmas Tree branches, some hot glue, and got to work. I was able to make this DIY Gold Wire Wreath in under 15 minutes. So, if you are looking for a holiday gift that is Chip and Joanna Gaines inspired, try this one out.
At target, similar gold wreaths are around $30 each which honestly isn’t a bad price. But you can DIY this wreath at home for about $7.00 each, maybe even less! I think this makes the perfect Christmas gift and even better, it looks expensive like the DIY feather ornaments I made a few years ago! I love when that happens. Here is exactly what you need to create this gold wire wreath.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Gold Metal Hoop. I bought two- one was 12 inches and the other was 8 inches.
- Fake Cedar Christmas Tree Greenery ( I found one with pine cones on it at Michaels and can’t find it on-line, sorry!
- Gold Skinny Wire (I barely used any on each wreath..this should last you a long time)
- Hot Glue Gun with Glue (This one is so inexpensive)
- Black faux leather ribbon
Instructions on how to make this Gold Wire Wreath isn’t complicated at all. You can make this holiday home decor in under 15 minutes if you don’t have any kids interupting you. Just make sure that you have everything you need to get started. I found most of what I needed on Amazon and used Prime so I could get it in a few days.
How to make your DIY Gold Wire Wreath and Instructions
Step 1: Find the perfect greens for your wreath and set them aside. I used fake greenery for this DIY Wreath because it was such a small amount, but you can absolutely use real greenery as well. It’s totally up to you. I just like the idea that I can have this around for years to come and won’t have to re-make it each Christmas season.
Step 2: Grab your gold wire and find the center part of the gold wire (usually where it meets) and use this as a reference for where you will begin your wreath. Place your glue on the wire and then lay down the greenery into it.
Step 3: Once you have your greenery placed on the gold wire wreath where you want it, cut a piece of the skinny gold wire. Secure a starting point in the center and then begin wrapping it in between the offshoot branches so it’s a little hidden.
Step 4: Next take the pine cone(s) and place them in the center or wherever you want them and glue them down. I used the skinny gold wire and wrapped it around them because I thought it looked a little more creative.
Step 5: Then you want to cut a piece of ribbon to hang your gold wire wreath with. Secure it to the wreath by wrapping it around and hot gluing the ribbon together. Then take the skinny gold wire and begin wrapping that around the base for added embellishment and security.
Step 6: Cut another piece of skinny gold wire, make a loop and twist it a few times. This will be what you hang your wreath with. Take the hanging ends of the wire and wrap that around the other end of the ribbon. Make it tight so the ribbon doesn’t slip.
That is how simple this DIY Gold Wire Wreath is! Can you believe it? I am going to make them as presents this year for my friends/family and decorate each one a little different. What I love about this craft is that you can customize it any way you want and it will still look awesome. I made several in different sizes that I could hang them with each other.
So, what do you guys think? Could you do this at home?
