Easy Christmas Wreath

Easy Christmas Wreath with Beads and RibbonThis is a quick and easy Christmas wreath to make.  I wanted a simple, classic wreath that could be used year after year.
Supplies Needed:
  • Foam Wreath
  • Red Ribbon – used to wrap foam wreath
  • 4 Strands of Beads:  I used 2 different sizes
  • Floral Pins
  • 1.5 Inch Ribbon for Bow
  • Double-sided Tape
I started by wrapping the wreath with the ribbon and adhering it with the double-sided tape.
Then I started wrapping the beads around the wreath.  I wrapped three at a time:  one small, one large, and one small.  That covered about 2/3 of the wreath.  Then for the rest I took a small strand and cut it in half and repeated the small, large, small pattern.  It will vary depending on the size of the wreath you are using.  I attached the beads using the floral pins.  I left a 1.5 inch space where I wanted the bow to be placed so it would lay flat against the wreath.

I looped the ribbon around once behind the bow and tied a knot to I could hang the wreath on my door.  Then I attached the bow to the loop so the bow is actually attached to the loop not the wreath.

Now I just can’t decide if I want to keep it on my front door or hang it above my fireplace:)  I might have to make another one.

Let me know what you think.  Have you made a wreath lately?  I’d love to see it.  Leave a comment and link back to what you made.
