This Christmas I decided to decorate my house in Country-Farm style. One of the thing that made me decide on this type of decoration was this kind of Rustic Christmas Wreath made with branches.
I made this Rustic Christmas Wreath in my free time. It took me about 2 evenings to complete it and with almost no money invested since most of this crown are branches that you can pick up from any garden.
If you want to learn how to make your own country-inspired Christmas wreath, read on in this tutorial.
What you will need is:
- Branches of different tree thicknesses.
- Christmas foliage garland (I used an artificial one).
- Thick red ribbon
- Strip with the stressed edges of Christmas type plaid fabric.
- Fantasy beads round and white
- Fake cranberries on twigs.
- Pieces of Christmas flowers that you like preferably in white or red.
- Glue Gun
Are you ready? Grab your branches and let’s do this.
Rustic Christmas Wreath DIY:
Making this crown will be very easy for you. First of all, shake or clean with a rag the dust that could have been left on the branches. Then carefully go forming a circle calculating the final measure you want for your crown. In this step, you may need to break some branches so that they adapt to the shape you want to give to the circle.
Keep stacking the branches on one another but keeping the shape of the circle and stick them with a drop of hot silicone. Press a few seconds until it dries.
Tip: Try to find the curved side of the branches so that you adjust it according to the curvature of the crown.
Keep doing this until you have a nice branched circle like this one:
The next step is taking a piece of your garland of an about the half-length of your wreath circumference. You can also cut small “branches” of the garland so it looks like you want it to do. Glue it.
After this, you can start adding the cranberries and the pieces of the Christmas flowers you selected. I went with this… “sticks? branches?” that looked snowed (I am referring to the thin white waved sticks). This will give your wreath a nice volume. Make sure to leave a space for the bow…
I made my bow by ripping a strap of the plaid fabric thinner than the red ribbon, and then, I glued it to it, and make the bow. Nothing to complex, but it ends looking amazing! After this, I took another strap of the plaid fabric and I just wrapped it around the wreath so the color popped more. And finally, I just added the white beads to make it feel like it were little snowflakes.
This is the end look and some pictures of my Country-Farm Christmas Tree to give context.
