Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY

While I wrote this up as a Christmas wreath for a door, it would also be fabulous over the fireplace. You may want to up the size of it thought – depending on the side of your fireplace mantel – to make it stand out.


The focal point of this wreath is the holiday sign. The cascade of berries is to offset the focal point making it less one-sided. This wreath aims for “snowiness” (yes, that is now a word), but it is not a snow-wreath.

Notes

• Make certain to match the size of your wreath to the door or area where it will be hung. A 36″ wreath on a 30″ door will not work. Likewise, a 24″ wreath over your fireplace mantel will probably be lost.

• Take a look at Halloween clearance sales too as many times you can find white wreaths there for 50-75% off!

• On that note, also take into account the sign to wreath ratio. You want something substantial, but not too overwhelming.

• This wreath uses a holiday sign as the focal point. You could also use a different object as your focal point: a stuffed reindeer or moose, a small birdcage, a Christmas tree topper, Santa or Mrs. Claus, a large partridge – anything that is holiday focused. In other words, you can gear this toward your holiday theme!

• If you plan on hanging this wreath from just after Thanksgiving through most of the winter, consider your focal point to be more generic… that is where a stuffed moose or moose sign would work very well!

• This wreath is frosted, not sparkly. If you choose to add sparkle, make it one or two touches of sparkle – such as the picks used. The sparkle on the picks will pick up the light. There will always be a small sparkle that is picked up from light (even if only streetlights).

• This is a door hanger wreath, it does not really lend itself to a ribbon for hanging. Since rustic does not always do ribbon “well” if you need a ribbon to hang, consider a red plaid one. No bow on this wreath either.

Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY Materials:

• 1 White Wreath
• 1 Holiday Sign (focal point)
• 2 Pick Floral Fruit
• 1 Geraniums Bush
• 3 picks Holly Berries
• Greenery
Glue Gun
• Hot Glue Sticks
Wire Cutters
• Floral Wire (optional)

Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY Directions:

• Position the sign (or whatever you are using as your focus) on the wreath. This is offset on the center, and “we” (the royal we because my niece had the idea, I’m just the running commentary and photographer) decided lower right. If you would like lower left because that works better for where you plan on hanging this finished wreath, that works too!

• Hot glue or wire in place. If you are going to wire, make sure you loop the floral wire through the hanger on the back of your sign, and through the wire on your wreath. Pretend you are weaving or sewing. Pull tight for less movement. You may also want to wire AND hot glue for stiffer placement, especially if your sign is heavy.

• The berries are being used to balance against the focal point you are creating. That sign (+ flowers you will be adding) is BIG. If you left it by itself on the wreath, it would be a lotta white, and a big old sign. You need something to break it up, hence the berry trail.

• Remember when hot gluing the berries in place that you are layering and adding leaves (intermingling greens) not lumping them together. Overlaying your berries, leaves, and picks will make the wreath look better.

• The reason geraniums were chosen as the flower for this wreath is because they are large. The sign is the focal point (I may have mentioned that before), and the geraniums are actually going to make that focal point a GIANT focal point that cannot be missed. Clip the geraniums, and place two large portions of the clippings (either one large, or two smaller) on either side of the focal point. Hot glue in place. Pull through some of the wreath into the geraniums for a slight break-up, and to show the wreath underneath.

• Two large flower features are set so as not to have 4-5 smaller features pulling your eyes in all directions. Breaking up the geraniums is key – this wreath needed color, but you don’t want it to be a big blob of color that slaps you in the er, eye.

• Once you have layered the berries (always do a dry run before hot gluing), and have added some greenery, use the picks to add some interest and conceal any holes which may show.

• Tuck away any wire you may have used, and move the wreath pines over bare spots.
