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.

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.

Decorate the grapevine wreath.

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. 

Tie the N and the O to the branch for hanging.

Now tie the N and the wreath to the branch length.

The letters are adjusted.

Hang the Wreath for Adjusting

Hanging the wreath between two chairs allows you to easily adjust the letters.

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.

Secure the letters on the branch in place with garden twine.

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.

The final details are added the the twine ends are trimmed.

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.

The wreath is hung from the door.
