I am really loving the look of simple wreaths this Christmas season. I find them to be so elegant and beautiful in an understated way. Have you noticed these wreaths this year? They are quite popular these days.
I knew that making one of these wreaths could be a really easy and inexpensive project. I was right! I was able to recreate the look of these elegant wreaths with just a few supplies from my local craft stores. Let me show you how I did it.
DIY Simple & Elegant Christmas Wreath

- large embroidery hoop (mine is 18″)
- 2 faux greenery stems
- small pinecones
- wide ribbon
- battery operated single candle
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- floral wire
What You’ll Do:
- First, arrange your greenery at the base of the embroidery hoop (where those chunky wood pieces are) and use floral wire or twine to attach the greenery to the hoop.
- Next, using hot glue, attach the pinecones (or a faux poinsettia flower) in the center, covering up the thick wood at the base of the embroidery hoop.
- Hot glue the base of the candlestick to the top of the thick wood on the embroidery hoop. You can spray paint the base a different color if you’d like (I sprayed mine an oil rubbed bronze because I wasn’t digging the fake brass look).
- Finally, hang your wreath with the wide ribbon from your door or wherever your heart desires. You could even add a bow at the top if you’d like!
- Step back and be amazed at your crafty self!
Isn’t it lovely? I am so pleased with how it turned out. The little candlestick I got stays on for several hours and then turns off on its own, so I’ve just timed it to turn on when the sun goes down. I love how this looks on our front door. It really sets the tone for an elegant Christmas home!
Are you into the simple wreaths this year or do you prefer the big fluffy ones?
