Christmas Tree Truck Wreath

I’m obsessed with vintage trucks!  My kids tease me relentlessly because our house is covered in them throughout the year for every holiday.  However, at Christmas, the nostalgia is even more sweet.  This Christmas Tree Truck Wreath, as my kiddos affectionately dubbed it, it one of my favorites.  It brings a touch of the past to your home for Christmas.

When I was a young girl, my grandfather had an old pick up truck.  His truck was nothing special and certainly would not win any prizes for cleanliness or style.  However, seeing these vintage trucks pop up in decor these days remind me of jumping in the truck with him and going for a ride.  I can still smell the oil and mustiness of the truck and feel the bumpy ride as we drove along.  My heart longs for those simpler days and I love to remember those times.  While this is just a simple wreath, the memories it stirs are priceless.

Supplies Needed

  • Evergreen wreath
  • Ribbon of desired color (I used red burlap and white fur ribbon)
  • Metal Truck (I found this one at Hobby Lobby on sale with their Christmas decorations-but Amazon has them as well if you want to avoid the stores)
  • Twine

 

 Directions

  • Add twine to the top of the metal truck
  • Tie twine around the metal ring of the evergreen wreath
  • Add ribbon by tying it into a bow of desired size
  • Push the twine under the back of the tie of the bow and tie it to the ring of evergreen wreath

 

Enjoy!

This simple JOY loop yarn wreath is so pretty and quick to assemble.  You will want to make some to give to all of your friends and family this Christmas.

 

  Supplies:

  • Foam wreath form in desired size (I used a 16 inch wreath form in white)
  • Black loop yarn (1 1/2 skeins for the one seen here.  If you paint the wreath form black, you could get away with 1 skein)
  • Ribbon in desired pattern (I love buffalo check for Christmas, especially red)
  • Joy (tin sign I bought from Hobby Lobby-on sale in their Christmas collections)
  • Twine


     Directions:

  • Start by wrapping the yarn around the wreath form.  I used 1 1/2 skeins of yarn for this wreath.  Hold the end of the yarn against the wreath form and then overlap the first wrap of yarn around the end piece to hold it in place.  (Using black yarn makes the white wreath form a bit difficult to completely cover without using more than one skein of yarn.  I needed it to be thick enough to cover the white.  If you choose, you can paint the wreath form black before wrapping the form with yarn.  Let the paint dry completely before wrapping the yarn).
  • When you have finished wrapping the yarn around the wreath form, tie the end of the yarn to the yarn on the back of the wreath.   Fluff the yarn if needed because sometimes the loops get mashed down while wrapping.
  • Use twine to tie the metal sign on to the wreath form.  Hide the ties of the twine in the yarn.  You may also want to use twine in a loop to hang the wreath.
  • Make a bow with the ribbon you have chosen.  Use twine to tie the bow onto the wreath form.  You may also use hot glue if you choose.  I like to change up my accessories on wreaths and use them multiple times.  So, using twine is a great way to allow you to switch out those accessories by season.

  • Locate seam of wire ring.  Gently move the sides of the ring around the seam back and forth until the ring seam breaks.
  • Add wooden beads to the wire ring until you have the amount you desire.
  • Put a bead of hot glue at both ends of the line of wooden beads.
  • Add eucalyptus stems to the wire ring in the area where you have not placed beads. Hot glue the stems in place.

Directions

 

  • Find the place on the wire ring where it has been sealed together.  This is a very weak spot.  Lightly bend this back and forth until the seal separates.  If needed, you can use wire cutters.
  • Add beads to the ring, taking up about 75% of the ring.
  • Place a bead of hot glue to both ends of the line of beads to hold them taught in place on the ring.
  • Include flowers and other accessories using floral tape or wire.  You may also choose to hot glue.  I like to recycle wreath forms, flowers, etc., so floral tape or wire allows for the pieces to be reused.
  • Cut a piece of twine about 4 inches long, wrap it around the ring and tie a knot in the ends.  This provides you with a loop to use as a hanger for the wreath.  This is optional.  You can also choose to hang the wreath directly by the beaded ring.
