DIY Christmas Wreaths

Dear Diary,

I love any DIY that saves me money, & this one definitely did!

Wreaths can be SO EXPENSIVE! I knew I could save some bucks making them myself.

Enjoy these three DIY Christmas wreaths on a budget!

1. Gingerbread Wreath



  • 20-inch wreath-Walmart $2.78 (SUCH A GOOD PRICE!!)
  • Gingerbread ribbon-Joann Fabrics $2
  • Gingerbread ornaments-Walmart $1.49 a piece
  • Hot glue

How To:

This wreath was so easy! I made the bow & hot glued that, as well as the ornaments, onto the wreath.

[If you’d like to see a blog post tutorial on bow making, give this a like!]

SO cute & SO simple!

2. Snowman Wreath (ALL DOLLAR TREE!)



  • Three wreaths (one 18-inch & two 15-inch)
  • Paint sponge
  • White paint (ok, I got this one at Walmart for $1.50)
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Bell (or hat) ornament
  • Fleece scarf
  • Hot glue

How To:

img_8387Take one of the 15-inch wreaths & wrap it around itself to make it smaller.

img_8388Stack the three wreaths on top of each other–the 18-inch on the bottom, 15-inch in the middle & your folded 15-inch on the top, creating a snowman figure.

Secure each wreath together with the pipe cleaners (you can also make more secure with some hot glue).

Lightly paint a bit of white paint onto the snowman to give it a snowy appearance.


Let completely dry.


This step is kind of off because I really wanted to find a snowman hat ornament (which I know the Dollar Tree has but I couldn’t find it!!) so, I got creative. I bought this red bell ornament instead & broke it in half to make a little Santa hat!


Hot glue the hat to the top wreath & tie the scarf around the snowman’s neck!


3. Berry & Burlap Wreath (ALL WALMART)



  • 20-inch wreath-$2.78
  • Merry Christmas sign-$3
  • Berry picks-$1

How To:

This one was extremely easy too! All I did was hot glue the sign to the wreath & place the picks around the wreath evenly.

Seriously, this wreath would go for at least $20 in another store!

Which wreath is your favorite?
