Every year I want to make a Christmas wreath. I love looking at all the options in the stores, but the prices make me pause. This year I came up with an easy to make DIY Christmas Wreath that is both rustic and minimalist.
Better yet, You can make it for under $10. I’ll show you how.
How to Make a Minimalist Christmas Wreath
The supplies are simple: a gold hoop or embroidery hoop, ribbon, florist tape, fake cranberries or other winter items, and cuttings of greenery like evergreens, cedars, or junipers from your yard. You could use all fake greenery, but that would make it a little more expensive.

I like to start by placing the end greens so I know how far to go. This wreath will end up asymmetrical.
Cut small (two inch/5 centimetre) pieces of florists tape and stretch around your piece of greenery to secure.

Keep layering your greens and berries around the hoop. You can make it as full or sparse as you like.
I like to use the berries at the end to try and hide the florist’s tape that meets in the middle. A bow or ornament would also be lovely.Make a DIY minimal rustic Christmas wreath for only $10! I'll show you how.Click To Tweet
Simple, modern, easy, and rustic. You can easily make one in 30 minutes or less.
Finally, tie a ribbon around the top to hang from doors windows, or anywhere that needs a little holiday cheer.
Enjoy Your Beautiful Rustic Christmas Wreath
A note about using real greenery: it will dry out eventually. It still looks nice, but if you’d like to prolong the life of your wreath indoors, I recommend misting it with water everyday. It will still dry out eventually, but it will buy you more time.
