Here is my very first Christmas project this year. I started seeing Christmas decoration all over blog land in the past few weeks, but I just did not feel enough inspiration to start sharing in early November. Usually, I start decorating my home right after Thanksgiving, and I love love love decorating for Christmas… I love the smell of the Christmas tree, the beautiful lights at night, ornaments, pine cones and everything about the holidays.

Last year I had lots of red and white accents in our home, and this year I am leaning towards more of the neutral/white color combination. Maybe a little silver/white combo added as well.
At least this is what I have in mind right now… it could change pretty much any day by seeing new inspiration. 🙂

This beautiful pine cone/twig wreath came to live in a very short time, just right before I left for my vacation. I had everything at home to make it, so I thought why not to put it together
and have it ready to be hung on the front door right after Thanksgiving.

THINGS YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS WREATH:

-vine wreath

-floral wire

-twigs

-snow spray

-white spray paint ( I use Rust-oleum)

-pine cones

– few ornaments to embellish (from $1 store)

Christmas wreath

I went out to the backyard to dig some branches and twigs, and I asked my hubby to cut them for the same size.
If you don’t have the option to cut your branches with an electric saw you can do it with a smaller hand saw as well.

 I spray painted the pine cones (the ones I painted orange for my fall home decor previously) with WHITE spray paint.

My front door gets lots of direct sunlight so despite that I LOVE using the hot glue gun for crafting; I learned that I can not have any wreath hanging out there that was made with hot glue
as it melts and falls apart in a day. 🙁

  I glued the twigs together like an X shape then I secured the X shape to the wreath base.  I used floral wire to attach the pine cones and the twigs to the wreath base.

You can not see the floral wire. I also knew that I will spray the whole wreath with fake snow so it won’t be visible. 🙂

It took me a little time to fix this beautiful wreath, and I love how it turned out.

  1. Thanks for the info about the hot glue! The front of my house is always in full sun year round! I never would have thought the glue would melt that easily. I am in Louisiana and sometimes the days are still warm. Today in the upper 30’s to low 40’s. In a few days back to the 70’s. I also loved the pure simple look of the wreath! Would look great against my black door!

    1. Tammy, I did not think either until I created a pretty wreath and after hanging on my door for half a day ( pretty sunny day) all the flowers were on the ground. It was so disappointing. Since then, I try to create wreaths without a glue:-) Hope I inspired you today! Have a wonderful week.
