Simple Cozy Christmas Wreath

Tell all ya friends and neighbors!


Well, it’s officially November. Also known in the blogger world life as “holiday schizophrenia month.” We will be slowly starting to decorate for Christmas, but also still have some fall decor out. As in I had to move pumpkins out of the way to take pictures of this wreath.

It’s never fun to feel like you’re all alone and out here in these (bloggin’) streets, so, I’ve teamed up with 25 other bloggers to bring you some DIY ideas and inspiration!What we are secretly trying to do is convince you all to decorate as early as us. It’ll be so fun!

I digress.

I got an idea for a Christmas wreath entirely too early this year, but hung on to it and am super excited to share it with you all today!

I love this wreath because there are so many ways you can customize it to make your own, but still keep it super budget friendly!

Supplies:*Some affiliate links are used for your convenience. For my full disclosure, click here

  • Christmas fabric of your choice
  • 16″ cake boards (Hobby Lobby or anywhere you can buy baking supplies)
  • “Merry” cutout (I was hoping to find something at the Target dollar spot, but alas. I forked out $14 for this guy on a Jane deal.ย  They actually have premade “holiday” words on sale right now for $5! Or you can also try Etsy here and here.)
  • Burlap bow (Here)
  • Twine

The cardboard cake plates came in a pack of 6, so I hot glued 3 of them together to make it a little thicker and sturdier.

Cut your fabric about 3-4″ larger than the cake plate thing.

Next, work your way around the circle and hot glue your fabric to the back of the cardboard.ย 

If you have any excess, this is where you will want to trim it off.

Depending on the word you choose, play around with the placement until you get it exactly where you want it to be, then hot glue it down.

Wrap your twine around the back of the bow to make a hanger
This step is optional, but I put just a dot of hot glue on the back side of the ribbon to attach it to the very top of the wreath so it would stay put.

Then you will want to take the twine that you tied around your bow and put hot glue on it like you see in the following photo so that you can loop it up and tie it for your hanger. And you’re done!

When I ordered the letter cutout, I had every intention of painting it, but when it came in I just fell in love with the natural wood. And I also love so much that it smelled like a campfire. I don’t know if any of you have ever been around someone making a wood burning art piece, but it smelled just like that and I LOVED it.ย  I love that this kind of looks like a Christmas ornament, which was totally an accident but score! I am so very pleased with how this turned out! I just feel like it’s something a little unique and adds warmth to our currently boring white front door!

What do you guys think?! I’d love to see how you guys put your own creative spins on this so feel free to share your links to your own below!

  1. Super easy to make. I made a wintery scene one so that it can be hung up all winter long.

    You got me on a roll now, cause I have been making these for each and every holday and everything in-between. They make up so fast that a person can do a few of these in a day; all in different sizes and shapes; not only circles, but rectangle, squares, etc. ones as well.
    Wonderful Inspiration and Thank You.
