This is my Christmas wreath hack on how to pimp up your wreath! I don’t know about you, but I haven’t the time to make one from scratch and I do find them a little pricey for my meagre budget! So I am going to share with you my Christmas wreath hack!
I purchased my faux wreath from Homebase a few years back, and this is perfect for a base. The pine is bendable, so it makes it super easy to add bits and pieces to bulk out the wreath. I foraged my foliage, in my garden, do be careful if you go out foraging that you are not stealing from someone’s land! Do ask permission.
As a crafter, I do have lots of bits and bobs around the house, so I sprayed some pinecones gold, dried some oranges, and found some red feathers, jingle bells and Christmas ribbon to add!
YOU WILL NEED:
A faux wreath
Some embellishments of your choosing
Christmas ribbon, wired is best
Some florists wire
It really is as simple as adding the bits onto the wreath, either by bending the branches or using the florists wire.
I decided to add some length by simply choosing some ivy and wiring it together in the middle.
Christmas Chair Back
You know I love a good chair back! Now this is my Christmas version and it could not be easier!! It definitely gives the table scape an added something wouldn’t you agree?
YOU WILL NEED:
Faux foliage, make sure you can bend the stems
Simply gather the stems and bend over the back of the chair, add the Christmas ribbon into a bow and let it trail down the back.
