Welcome back everyone! Here we are, back with some more great projects for you. I sure love getting the chance to work with Hobby Lobby to bring inspiring and beautiful décor to your homes. Making our space inviting and comforting is such a joy, and sharing it with loved ones makes it that much more special. Hobby Lobby does not disappoint with their wintery, Christmas supplies this season. I’m telling you, I ended up making three projects because one simply wasn’t enough! Get out to your local store or head online and wander up and down the aisles because there is just too much for me to list it all out for you. But before you head out– check out these three wreaths and see which one suits your style (or maybe you fancy all three of them like I do!). There are several reasons why I love these wreaths: they require NO prior crafting experience or knowledge; they are customizable to suit your tastes and can live on your front door well past Christmas; and they are budget-friendly! Make them as simple or as full as you want depending on your price range. I made sure to give plenty of options to fit different needs! Okay, ready to dive in? Read down below for the full supply list and step-by-step instructions, then head over to my YouTube channel to watch the video tutorial.

Supplies

Snowflake Wreath

Platinum Wreath

Elegant Christmas Wreath

Directions

Snowflake Wreath

1.Grab the wooden frame and give it a solid coating of white paint all the way around. Set it aside to dry fully before moving onto step 2.

Step 1. Paint the frame white

2.You are going to glue down the snowflakes onto the frame, leaving a ¾”-1” space between each snowflake, and place them all the way around the circle. Apply hot glue to the center of the snowflake and press it onto the wooden ring, hold it there for a few seconds to secure it, then repeat the process until you come back to the start.

Step 2. Glue down 1st layer

3.For the second layer of snowflakes, you’re going to attach them in the open space between the snowflakes from the first layer. This time add the hot glue to the points of the snowflake that will rest on the first layer, and make sure not to add too much glue so that it doesn’t ooze out. Repeat this process all the way around the wreath.

Step 3. Glue down 2nd layer

4.Optional: Tie a loop of jute cord at the top of the wreath for hanging. This is not required if you feel that your wreath holder will be able to hold onto the frame.

Optional: Tie a loop for hanging

5.Take the bow ornament and clip off the plastic piece used for attaching an ornament hook. Apply a generous amount of glue to the back of the bow and to the wreath where the bow will be added. Press the bow down and hold it for a minute to let the glue set. And that’s it! A simple wreath that can be for Christmas and beyond.

Step 5. Attach bow

Platinum Wreath

1.Place the beautiful platinum grapevine wreath on your workspace and grab those cedar picks. This is a one-step wonder! All you need to do is trim off about 2” from the stem, add a generous dab of hot glue to the end, insert it into the grapevine, and repeat! I curved the picks so that they followed along the shape of the wreath, and be sure to place them so that they all flow the same direction as you move around the circle. You can make it all full as you want, but 13 picks will be plenty if you want to keep it more simple.

Step 1. Insert branches all around the wreath

2.Optional: Tuck into the branches festive ornaments, owls, pinecones, etc. See the video for ideas!

Optional: Add any extra decoration you want

Elegant Christmas Wreath

1.Lay the wreath form flat on your work surface, grab the ball ornaments, and pipe cleaners. The great thing about this wreath is: no hot glue necessary! You’ll attach everything with pipe cleaners so that you can remove any elements that are Christmassy and keep it just a winter wonderland wreath for the remainder of the season. So take a pipe cleaner, string three ornaments onto it, and then secure it to the wreath by twisting the pipe cleaner ends together in the back. Add as many as you like, I chose to do 5 groups of ornaments spaced evenly around the wreath.

Step 1. Attach ornaments

2.Take the poinsettia flowers and place them where you like, I kept mine clustered in the bottom right corner. Again because you aren’t using hot glue, you’ll secure the flowers to the wreath using zip ties on each. It’s up to your personal taste where you want them and how many you want! The finished size of this wreath is very large so you definitely get your money’s worth with this design.

Step 2. Attach poinsettias

There you have it! Three new Christmas wreaths to last all winter season that won’t break the bank. Thanks to Hobby Lobby, we have endless affordable options to keep our homes festive and inviting. I hope you enjoyed these and that you all have a wonderful start to the holiday season.
