Easy Christmas Wreath

Here it is instructions on how to make an easy Christmas greens wreath. A friend showed me how to do this about twenty years ago. Here is what you need.

A picture frame or you can use a round piece of cardboard.
A large black 30 gallon trash bag
assorted greens, what ever you want to use.
A spool of wire, clippers and sissors ,duct tape if you are using card board
Decorations for your wreath, ribbon, holly, Christmas ornaments.
If your wreath is going outside make sure the decorations are weather proof.

If you are using a picture frame it is really simple.

Take your trash bag and cut  it into long strips about two or three inches wide.
Tie one end on the corner of your frame.  Then you just start wraping the frame with the plastic strips.  Go in the same direction and tie on a new strip when you get to an end until you have the whole thing covered.

Not to pretty, but it doesn't matter.  The take your greenery and just start putting it in under each of the strips like it is a little envelope.  Make sure you go the same direction.  I used some boxwood I have in my back yard.  When you get done if you have some spots that need filling you can just tie on another strip of plastic bag and add the greens. 
I hung mine outside with a monogram letter inside.  Fast easy and free!!


  1. Debbie, you are amazing. This is beautiful. Where did you get the monogram?

  2. Nice mom, I will try and make one here. When you upload your pics, there should be in option to make them small, medium, or large. You should make them larger so it's easier to see how to make it.

  3. Ok Linds I will try to get my pictures larger! LOL Just use whatever greens you can find. You can even take out that picture and the glass from the strange picture in your bedroom...then use the frame. Return it when you are done.

    I got the monogram letter at the craft store and put it on a white canvas square.

  4. this came out beautiful!..and the M is a great touch!
