[DIY] Christmas Wreath with Tutorial

I could never be more excited to share this DIY Christmas Wreath!
   
Wreath is something that I find fascinating since I moved here in the United States.  Back then in the Philippines, I never see it in any homes that I've been to or maybe I was too young and naive to even notice what decorations people put in their houses.

After I made a little research what wreath is all about apart from being a beautiful home decor, I realized that it is something that symbolizes eternity because of its ring shape and it is just basically giving your home a finishing touch to a holiday decorations.

And since then, I have been slowly adapting the wreath decor.  Which made me to create my own Spring-Summer Wreath.  If you did not remember about that wreath, I was a little shy about decorating the whole thing.

But this time, with my Christmas Wreath, I did not shy away from creating a full on wreath!

I decided on my colors when it snowed last week.   Yes, it snowed in November.

So the wreath that I made is inspired by the snow.  At least snow inspired me to create something beautiful.  I could not complain about it then...
But where is the joy in creating if there is no sharing.

So here's the fun part, the process of making a wreath.
Supplies:
* wooden wreath form
* white faux fir garland
* white pine cone garland
* 1 roll of large light blue mesh - 5.5 in X 45 ft
* 1 roll of small white mesh - 2.5 in X 10 yd
* wooden letter
* paddle wire
* pliers
* scissors

I started with attaching the faux fir garland to the wreath form, using paddle wire.  Be very careful with the paddle wire, it is very sharp and I cut my finger while doing this.  Don't worry so much if the garland is not covering the wreath form properly as long it is attached properly.
Because once the fir garland is attached, spread it out on both inside and outside of the ring, spreading them evenly looking something like this.
Okay, don't mind my workspace and my pretty socks okay.. :) But you see what I am talking about right?..

Then attach the large light blue mesh to the fir garland.  I did not use the paddle wire for this, instead I kind of loop the blue mesh and then used the fir garland to tie it together.
Then attach the white pine cone garland to the wreath using the paddle wire, added 4 snowflakes and the wooden letter to finish it off.
I am so happy on how it turned out and I got a lot of compliments & orders (really, haha) when I posted it on my personal fb page.

How about you, are you up to creating your own wreath for Christmas?

Until then...
