How To Make A Wreath From Garland

I had a bit of an “iced” theme tossed into our casual homemade Christmas this year. From the iced berries on our tree to the wreath that’s hanging on our kitchen cabinet, “iced” was a little here and a little there.

Today I’m sharing how to make a wreath from garland…. it’s so unbelievable easy… but so pretty!

I started with a big strand of iced garland, which I bought at Hobby Lobby while it was 50% off…

Never mind the straw wreath form or the wire, I thought they would be the best way to make it work, but turns out I was wrong… more on that later.

Next, I used a pair of needle nose pliers and removed all the icy bundles…

Then, after trial and error with the straw wreath form, I bought a green foam wreath form…

I simply shoved the metal end of the greenery into the wreath form as far as it would go and then hot glued the heck of it.

I started on the top, then moved to the side…

And I didn’t have to worry about the wreath form peeking out since it matched the color of my iced branches. Score!

I just kept adding and gluing the branches until it was completely full…

Then I just wrapped a bit of that grapevine wire (pictured above) around the wreath and used that to hang the wreath over our cabinet door. I just covered the grapevine wire with the plaid ribbon. Simple!

I love how it looks in kitchen!

And I love how full the wreath is… and it seriously looks real!

I love that the wreath brings a fresh vibe to the kitchen, and that it ties in with the rest of the fresh greenery throughout the house. And because it’s so pretty, I’ll overlook the slight “icy” shedding. :)

Have a happy weekend! I’ve got so much to do… shopping to be finished, wrapping to do… and packing! We’re heading out Tuesday to see Anthony’s family!

See you on Monday!

Lovely comments so far...

  1. Love….love… the tutorial! Just before I read your blog I passed thru my kitchen and thought that next year I need a couple wreaths in there.

    I’ll be saving your DIY for sure!

    • THANK YOU so much, Kim! I’m so happy you’re going to make your own! A wreath makes everything better! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Shayna … Just LOVE your wreath and love the icy greens. A garland is the cheapest way to get picks. I have taken a lot of garlands apart and that works for me. Reminds me that I have a ‘icy’ cedar garland that I need to take apart and make a wreath … it keeps shedding and a wreath will be better.
    Thanks for the nice tutorial and the idea.
    Christmas Blessings.

  5. I loved this so much yesterday when I saw it that I went out and bought all the materials to make my own today. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!!

  6. Such a clever idea. Good looking wreaths can cost a fortune! Now I’ll be looking for some nice garland on an after Christmas sale!

    • THANK YOU so much, Yvonne! I agree, wreaths can be sooo expensive! This way was very wallet friendly! ๐Ÿ˜€
