I have a thing for homemade Christmas wreath ideas. I love DIY wreaths and holiday decorations. Artificial green wreaths are one of my favorite kinds to work with because there are so many possibilities and it’s virtually impossible to mess them up. Dress up a plain green wreath with all sorts of things from pinecones from the yard to holly berries. Keep it simple when you add a big red bow. If you want an easy way to match a holiday color scheme, add coordinating ornaments. Try adding wooden craft store letters to create a personalized monogram wreath.
Thank you to QVC for inviting me to participate in the Holiday DIY Wreath Challenge. I received a E.D. On Air 24″ Prelit Wreath by Ellen DeGeneres. All opinions about how to make Christmas wreaths are my own.
This holiday season, I am decorating the E.D. On Air 24 inch Prelit Wreath by Ellen DeGeneres ($44, QVC.com). This is a realistic-looking artificial green wreath that is actually ready-to-use right out of the box! *Just add 3 “D” batteries. I really like the how the 40 LED lights can be set to Clear (White), Multi Color and Soft Morph options. The battery box is hidden on the backside of the wreath, so there is no cord! You can even “Set it and Forget it” thanks to the wreath’s automatic 6 hours on/18 hours off timer.
My wooden monogram has become one of my favorite ways to liven up any wreath. Whenever I need to change the color, all I have to do is spray paint it. I think this particular monogram has been at least 3 different colors already!
How to Make a Holiday Glam Monogram Wreath
What You’ll Need:
- Floral Wire
- Wooden Monogram Letters
- Gold Spray Paint
- Red Ribbon (optional)
It’s easy to add letters to your wreath. Once you have got your letter (or letters), spray paint them gold. Try a glitter spray paint for even more sparkle! Allow the paint to dry overnight and use floral wire to attach the letters to the wreath.
I centered the monogram on the wreath because it was big enough to fit in the middle. If you have a single letter monogram, it may look best placed off center. Now the wreath is ready to hang.
Somewhere along the way, I saw a photo of a wreath hung on the headboard of a bed. I have always wanted to try it, so I added a length of red ribbon to help me hang this wreath on my bed. It is so fun to have a little bit of holiday decor in my bedroom.
