Simple and Quick Farmhouse Christmas Wreath DIY Tutorial

Hey buddies!
Lots of y’all wanted to see how I whipped up this massive-yet-simple farmhouse style Christmas wreath in about 5-10 minutes, so here ya go!  This could definitely be scaled down to fit different sized spaces, or it would be cute as little mini-wreaths for place settings or attached behind dining room chairs.  Endless possibilities with just a few simple materials and about 10 minutes of time!  All of the supplies pictured came from Hobby Lobby, and if you time it just right, you can get it all 50% with their weekly deals!  Love me some good ol’ Hob Lob. 😉

(Note: many of the supplies from Hobby Lobby are not available online to be linked for you, so I’m linking up very similar options instead!)

For my wreath, I wanted a BIG statement on this wall to serve as the focus of our living room’s Christmas decor, and this bad boy is about 3ft. tall!  Go big or go home, right??  I tried to place the greenery grouping a little off-center for an asymmetrical look, but you could place it anywhere, or it would be beautiful if you went all the way around the wreath for a very full, fluffy holiday piece!  Here’s how to complete this easy farmhouse Christmas wreath:

(I only used four types of the above faux greens and flowers…thought I’d use more, but I ended up liking the simple vibe!  Any of these would have worked well together though, so do you!)

 

SUPPLIES:

Grapevine wreath form of any size (mine is 3ft diameter)

Basic green faux evergreen stems of any kind

Flocked faux evergreen stems

Mini-pomegranate stems or faux red berry stems

Faux silver dollar eucalyptus stems

Florist’s tape in green or brown
(I didn’t use this, but if you’re worried about stability, add florist’s tape to join the stems and grapevine wreath while assembling)

Wire cutters

1 – Decide on placement of greenery on your grapevine wreath form.  Sometimes these forms can be wonky and misshapen, so I chose to cover up the crazy looking section with my greenery!  I love using these wreath forms, because they are natural in appearance, nice and neutral, plus the twisting dried vines really help grab and hold floral stems.

2 – Once you’ve decided on placement, work your way outside in by placing the stems that you want to appear on the outermost edges first.  I started with some simple faux evergreen needle stems and used them to gauge just how large of a greenery section I wanted on my wreath, and I knew I wanted them to point in different directions.  I trimmed the length of the wire stem with wire cutters, and, because I am professional like that, I just jabbed the cut end of the stem into the grapevine wreath form.  And…the end. 😂  If you are worried about stability, try also wrapping small sections of the greenery stem to one or two of the grapevine twigs close to it, making sure to disguise behind a fluff of greenery.  Sometimes I take the time to do this step, other times….I am way to excited to put together a Christmas living room to show my Cotton Stem Buddies and I skip it! 😉

3 – Next, add a couple sprigs of flocked evergreen on top of the basic greenery, making sure to point the stems all the same directions.  I only used two flocked greenery stems, and then I sort of smooshed pieces of the basic greenery and the flocked all together once placed in order to blend the different types of faux florals.  So far, only four greenery stems have been used!  Again, add florist’s tape at this step if you’d like.

4 – To bring in a fresh, modern twist, I added some faux silver dollar eucalyptus sprigs in and amongst the evergreen stems.  No rhyme or reason here.  I just started jabbing them in!  😉  The eucalyptus stems were part of a eucalyptus bush sold by Hobby Lobby, but I just cut off smaller sections with my wire cutters as I didn’t want huge bunches of eucalyptus.  I wanted a more airy feel, and adding these sprigs willy nilly helped achieve that!  Love how they sort of hang off the wreath in a messy way.  Keeps things from being too precious and adds that more modern feel to the wreath, in my opinion!

5 – And finally, I clipped off and added a few small sprigs of faux mini-pomegranates for some pops of Christmas red.  Love these little guys!  Natural yet colorful, and they added juuuuust enough color and brightness to read “holiday”…but you could always remove these after Christmas for a neutral wreath for winter!
