Make a Noel Wreath
Learn how to create this simple, chic, and rustic farmhouse wreath for the holidays.
Christmas is such a magical time in our home. One of the things that I look forward to is creating a unique wreath that celebrates the season. This year, I wanted to create a Christmas scene with a star-filled night and brilliant snowfall. I wanted something rustic and simple that embraced farmhouse style.
For this craft you will need:
- wooden letters- N, E, L
- spray paint
- green floral wire
- small grapevine wreath
- tin building
- tin star
- glitter snowflakes
- garden twine
- branch for yard about 2 feet in length
First spray paint the letters in your choice of color. Set them aside to dry. Once the letters are dry, drill two holes in the top and the bottom of the letter N. Drill two holes in the top of the letter E and drill two more holes in the top of the letter L.
Next, create the wreath. Wire on the tin building, greenery and star into place as you like.
Lay out the letters on a flat surface. Cut lengths of twine. Give yourself some extra length for adjustments. With the twine, loosely tie the letter E to the bottom of the letter N. Then tie the letter L to the bottom of the wreath.
Now tie the N and the wreath to the branch length.
Gently pick up the wreath and hang it between pieces of furniture. I used my kitchen chairs. Adjust the length of the letters and wreath so that they are even with one another.
Once you are satisfied with the way the letters hang, tighten the knots on the letters and wreath. Then, wrap the top of the branch with twine to keep the letters from sliding around on the branch. Tie off the ends.
For final steps, cut another length of twine and tie it to both ends of the branch. This will serve to hang your wreath. Then add the glitter snowflakes on the extra ends of the twine. Trim the remaining twine to finish the letters. Then trim the branch to your final desired length.
Add this wreath to the front door, above a mantel, to a doorway, above the dining room buffet, on top of a large mirror or even the garden shed. Happy Holidays from my home to yours.
