Creating a Christmas Wreath

Having a wreath hanging on your door or veranda is a common tradition in many Australian homes. Have you thought of hanging a homemade wreath?

Here is how my daughter made one a few years ago (she was about 6 at the time and had help) …

  1.  bend a metal coathanger into a circle
  2. cut the hook part of the coathanger off (unless you prefer to use it for hanging) and make sure sharp edges are hidden/filed
  3. cut plastic shopping bags into long strips – the more strips you use, the better the final result but 3 bags would be the minimum
  4. tie the strips onto the circle (double the strip and pull the lengths through the loop is the easiest way)
  5. spray paint the wreath
  6. once dry, tie on some Christmas baubles (or plastic holly , etc)
  7. use some pretty ribbon to create a large bow at the top, with enough left over to use as a tie for the wreath
  8. hang it on your door – or give to someone else for their door

And Squiggle Mum has instructions for three lovely wreaths you and/or your young children can make.

Do you have another way to make a wreath you could share with us?
