What does a wreath-addicted person do between Christmas and Valentine’s Day? There’s a whole month of holiday-limbo where front doors are either decked in outdated Christmas decor or prematurely covered in pink hearts.
Seriously people, this is the dilemma I face every year… and I normally end up smothering our door in hearts, which our four boys don’t always appreciate as much as I do.
This year, I was thrilled when I came across these strands of red berries at the craft store. I felt like the craft-stars were alining for me to make a winter-themed/ holiday-neutral wreath. It was a complete EUREKA moment.
Supplies Needed To Make Your Own Winter Wreath:
Step by Step Instructions to Make a Winter Wreath:
- Paint the wood monogram with the silver acrylic paint. Let it dry.
- Cut the red berry garland into individual strands.
- Wrap the red berry garland around the outside of the wreath. Make sure to cover the wreath evenly.
- Secure the end of the garland under strands already wrapped. The metal in the garland allows you to wrap without using any glue.
- Finish the wreath with the silver ribbon.
- Voila! You have yourself a beautiful winter-themed wreath.
You are no longer stuck with your tired Santa wreath or the way-too-early pink and fuzzy heart-shaped wreath.
I love making wreaths for every season. I have been doing it for a few years now, so my collection of wreaths is growing.

Don’t miss these fun wreaths. There are easy and quick wreaths and some that require a bit more planning and creativity. I have wreaths for the front door and also some that will look great inside the house. Think outside of the box when you make your wreaths and where you decide to hang them.
There are no wreath-rules… so get creative and have fun with it.
