Beaded Wire Wreath with Eucalyptus

 

I’m loving this beaded wire wreath with eucalyptus!  It’s simple to make, comes together quickly and looks adorable on a mantle or door.  With a change of the burlap ribbon, this simple wreath can carry you through any season.

 

Supplies

    • 20 MM wooden beads
    • Wire ring 10 inch
    • Twine (optional)
    • Eucalyptus stems
    • Burlap ribbon in your choice of colors (I chose orange to match my home’s accent colors)
    • Hot glue and glue gun

Directions

 

  • 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.
  • Make a bow from burlap ribbon and hot glue it to the ring.
  • Optional–add a piece of twine in a loop for hanging the wreath.  If you choose to omit the twine, you can just hang the wreath on a wreath hanger by the ring.

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.

Snowman Yarn Wreath

Snowman Yarn Wreath

This adorable snowman yarn wreath will give a warm, cozy appeal to your home’s front door or your mantle.  Yarn wreaths are my favorite wreaths for winter months.  They are so simple yet so bold.  This snow white wreath just screams winter.  You can almost picture this little guy coming to life and skating through town.  

If your kids love to help you make your crafts and wreaths, this is a great one to have them work on.  They can wrap the yarn around the foam wreath form.  Depending on their age or cutting skills, they may be able to cut out the snowman’s hat.  It’s a fun way to get the kids involved in making cherished Christmas decor that you bring out every year.

**This wreath is one that would be best used inside or on a door with a porch to keep the yarn from getting wet.**

Supplies

 

 

  • White Loop Yarn (2 skeins)
  • 1 white 6 inch wreath form
  • 1 white 10 inch wreath form
  • Black felt-stiff/heavy-duty (sparkles optional)
  • Small sprig of holly or other green and berries
  • Zip ties (2)
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • 10 inch piece of narrow ribbon for hanging wreath (optional)
  • Ribbon (wired)–for this I chose a flannel ribbon

 

 

 Directions

 

  • Hot glue one end of loop yarn to the foam wreath form
  • Wrap the loop yarn around the foam wreath forms until both forms are covered
  • Use zip ties to connect the two wreath forms together, hiding the zip lines with the loop yarn
  • Draw and cut out a top hat of felt
  • Hot glue the hat to the top wreath form.  Glue on green stem and berries if you choose
  • Tie desired length of ribbon around the neck of the snowman-hot glue can be used to secure the ribbon to the snowman
