Here it is – my first official Christmas post and it is a Christmas Wreath!

Now, if this upsets you and you feel I should wait till Thanksgiving, my apologies.  But as a blogger, like in magazines, if we wait that long, the pressure is on for everything else and the crafting gets left behind.

And plus, I love to start Christmas early!

This wreath is a Christmas version of the Wood & Burlap Fall Wreath I shared a few weeks back.

This wreath can be customized to whatever colors and patterns you like.  It is pretty simple, here at the steps.

Step 1

You simply start with a wreath form.  I used a flat wooden form like this one, but almost any one will work.

We sliced the wood from logs we had with a chop saw.  However, rumor has it that Michael’s Stores are now selling the slices in a bag.

Layer them around once and then a second time overlapping the seams of the first round.

If your wreath is going indoors, you can use hot glue, but if you are putting it in a warm or sunny spot, use a weather safe adhesive.

Tie a ribbon around the form for hangining before you beginning gluing the wood on.

Step 2

Fold over pieces of burlap ribbon, and glue them down in multiple directions to create a framework to build on.  I also followed back in with the sheer snowflake ribbon for a little more pattern.

Step 3

Glue on pinecones in multiple sizes and directions.

Step 4

Using glue, tuck in varying pieces of imitation or real greenery.  I used a green one with blue berries and then went back in to layer in the green berries.

  1. Oh I love this! So unique and creative! I love the wood slices, what a fabulous idea!!! Beautiful wreath!

  2. Your wreath is so beautiful Laura. I love it. It’s not too early for us here in Canada. I even saw quite a few Christmas lights on this evening and one tree all lit up in a living room window! Now that’s early, even for me. Blessings, Pamela

  3. BEAUTIFUL wreath Laura…I love it!!

  4. This is absolutely stunning, I LOVE it!

  5. How unique…I love it!

  6. 1. LOVE the wreath! 2. LOVE that you are starting early. Nobody should need to explain why or when they are decorating. It makes me so frustrated to see people get so worked up about when others choose to decorate ;)

  7. Love the wreath! and the pretty green color’s used. Being a business, you need to start the inspiration early! I have been busy since August shooting Christmas goods. This year the Season will be a bit shorter since Thanksgiving is not till the 28th. BTW, Little one and I went to a Mother/Daughter workshop on Saturday and made shabby sweet wreath and on the way–several houses already were fully decked with lights and all. Tis the season :)

  8. Gorgeous wreath!

  9. HI Laura,

    I adore that wreath! Perfect for this season – and we totally have our lights and tree up. :)

    xo,

    Hello!
    I love this wreath! I would really like to make something like this. My husband and I heat our home primarily with wood in the winter so we have no shortage of wood I could use for this. I would probably end up using slices of birch. I am wondering, did you coat them with anything to keep them from drying out and cracking? Also, did you sand them or did your saw do a good enough job keeping them smooth? Any extra tips regarding your cutting process would be appreciated!!

    Thank you,
    Katy

    I love your wreath and will try to duplicate it for my front door this year. I know the blue berries are juniper but what are the larger green berries?

    Thanks so much
    Patti

  24. Love it! It is so pretty and simple rustic. I would love to share this in a wreath round-up on my blog this week if you don’t mind!

    Laura, this is stunning and rustic, and looks really simple! Can you let me know roughly how thick you cut each log slice? Thanks :)
