How to make a Christmas wreath?

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to easily make your own Christmas wreath. You can do this! Very pretty to hang on your wall or door at home.

In this Christmas wreath, I used mostly gold and salmon color.

What materials do you need?

Which materials do you need:
– straw wreath 30 cm
– gluegun with refills
– rope
– scissors
– Christmas decorations
– fabric.

I often get fabric and decorations from the thrift store. A lot cheaper and it gets recycled too.

Below in the video you can see how I make the Christmas wreath.

How do you begin?


– Wrap the fabric around the wreath. Stick it in place first with a dot of glue. Be careful not to touch this with your fingers; it can be very hot!
Wrap the fabric around so that you can no longer see the wicker.

– Then stick the decorations on the fabric. See what you like: I chose a composition at the bottom.
You can also fill the whole wreath.
It remains a bit quieter if you only decorate half of it.

– Choose consciously for maximum 3 colors. Otherwise it becomes too busy.
I now have gold, brown and salmon pink. If I would add e.g. green it would be a bit more busy.

– Remove the glue threads when they are dry; then you can easily remove them.

– Tie some string at the top. So you can hang it on the wall.

You can hang the Christmas wreath over the dining table, above your sofa or on the door.

Coincidentally, my salmon color lime wall from Myluciestudio matched it perfectly.
It “blends” in beautifully. Of course, this is not necessary. A white Christmas wreath on a salmon pink wall stands out much more.

Adding contrast

In the top photo you can see that the white Christmas wreath stands out much more. This is because you are using a totally different color.

How did I made this picture?

Of course, it is interesting how this above photo came about.

I used my cement look floor in the studio. But you can also use this vinyl backdrop:
Cement look backdrop ML101

These vinyl backdrops are perfect for photographing DIYs for your blog.
You can simply clean them with a cloth. And you can use a different backdrop each time.

Photography settings:
Fuji Xt4, ISO 1250, F4, 1/125.
16-80 mm.

I used backlight at this setting. So the light came from behind my setting.
