DIY Tree Shaped Wreath
I’m officially kicking off the holiday DIY season! If you’re like me and you love decorating for the holidays then you’re going to love today’s project. It’s a pretty DIY tree shaped wreath that is oh-so-doable and will instantly make all your neighbors envious.
All the supplies for this project, including the shimmery shatterproof ornaments, are part of the Martha Stewart Living Collection at The Home Depot, which is basically my home away from home since I always seem to be in the middle of a home project and they happen to have the best indoor plant selection in Los Angeles. The wreath can be customized to fit your holiday color palette and style—just add as many ornaments as you like. And since it uses a faux pine garland, it will last year after year.
Check out my tutorial below to see how easy it is to make!
DIY Tree-Shaped Wreath
Winter Tidings Collection shatterproof ornaments
Winslow 9ft pre-lit garland
1″ wood lattice cut to 2 – 30″ pieces and 1 – 22″ piece
power drill with ¼” bit
3 – ¼” x ¾” bolts
3 – ¼” wing nuts
medium zip ties
- Cut the lattice. Use a miter saw or a hand saw in a miter box to cut the lattice into 2 – 30″ pieces and 1 – 22″ piece.
- Drill a hole into the lattice. Stack all 3 pieces of lattice on top of each other and place the stack on top of a scrap wood (a short piece of 2″ x 4″ works great for this). Drill all the way through the stack about ½” from the end.
- Connect lattice. Make a triangle with the cut lattice pieces and connect them using the bolts and wing nuts.
- Attach garland to lattice. Fold the garland in half and place it facedown on the table and position the assembled lattice on top, with the folded point of the garland at the top of the triangle. Use zip ties to attach the frame tightly to the garland. Trim the zip ties with the wire cutters and flip it over to fluff out the branches.
- Add ornaments. Use wire to attach ornaments and other decorations to the wreath.
