I just LOVED my Summer Wood Bead Wreath so much that I had to make a holiday version. The wooden beads paired with the winter greenery and vintage deer ornament is the perfect mix of whimsical and woodland. Isn’t it gorgeous?!
Now don’t go giving me all of the credit; this gorgeous wreath from Nest of Posies was my inspiration for this seasonal DIY. I put my own touches on it and could not be happier with how it turned out. Below are the step-by-step details!
- 2 in. split wood balls
- Artificial winter greenery & floral stems
- Whimsical deer ornament
- 16 in. wooden embroidery hoop
- Mini bottle brush trees
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters (or a good set of scissors)
- Hot glue gun
- Glue sticks
Start by gluing your wood balls to the embroidery hoop with hot glue. Place them next to each other and keep adding until the hoop is about 2/3 covered.
Attach the greenery and florals to the portion of the hoop without the wood balls with your floral wire. Use the wire cutters/scissors to trim as necessary. If you are worried about things moving out of place like me; don’t be shy and use some hot glue, too!
Once the bottom is covered in greenery, add some bottle brush trees and the deer using hot glue. Arrange them however you’d like. Get creative with colors!
Tie the ribbon or burlap into a big bow between two balls at the top and center of the wreath.
And that’s all there is to it! It literally takes less than 30 minutes to make the Pinterest-worth wreath that I bet would cost upward of $70 if you were to purchase something similar.
