How to Make a Christmas Wreath Ornament

Supplies needed

Step-by-step Tutorial

I picked up these brass rings at the Dollar Store. As soon as I saw them I knew they would be perfect for minimal wreath ornaments. They look amazing aside from one little spot where the brass comes together, so I knew that I would probably cover that part up.

I pulled out some faux greenery from my stash to make these rings into wreaths. These are faux greenery pieces that I already had on hand. If you don’t have any, you could also just buy a wreath from the Dollar Store and cut off the pine branches.

You will need to cut them into single pieces, using wire cutters. You need pieces small enough to wrap your Christmas wreath ornament without overwhelming it.

Next use craft glue to put them on the brass ring. Simply hold them in place for a couple of seconds until the glue dries.

The craft glue sets up pretty quick, so curve the greenery piece around the ring. I decided to give mine a modern look and put the greenery pieces on the side to make it asymmetrical.

The final step is to take one of the velvet ribbons left over from my Modern DIY Candy Cane Ornament and tie it in a knot above the wreath so I’d be able to hang it. You can use any ribbon you want to, in any colour. I matched our holiday decor for this year.

These little Christmas wreath ornaments were so easy and they look so good. They’re minimal and simple. I love how they look by themselves.

The Christmas wreath ornament was a little lost in my pine tree, but I did hang one on top of these printables and I loved how it looked at the top of the artwork. I can also imagine then decorating mirrors, or cabinets, or place settings. Or as gift toppers, like I did with these other mini wreaths.
