How to make a christmas wreath out of tree trimmings

How to Make a Wreath Out of Branches • a traditional life

One of the things I love about being a full time homemaker is that I have time to be creative with my hands. Instead of grabbing what I need on my way home from work, I get to savor the process of making the desired items for my home.

There’s something so unique and beautiful about handcrafted homes, furniture and décor. And right now, I want to walk you through an easy, DIY project that anyone can do! I’m going to show you how to make a wreath out of branches!


Making your own wreath frame is simple. All you need is a number of tree boughs, floral wire and a pair of pruning shears. And this tutorial, of course! Let me walk you through the process!


Step 1: Choose Wood Types Suitable for Wreath Frames

If you have trees growing on your land, you can go out and collect your boughs (or saplings) for wreath making, so long as they’re the right type!

Cedar, willow, dogwood, poplar and birch are all excellent options. But stay away from tree types that release resin (pine, spruce, fir) or have sticky buds (like cottonwood). Why? Because if your wreath is hanging against a wall, window or door, these boughs will likely leave resin or sap behind. And it’s very difficult to get off!


Step 2: How to Harvest Your Material

Grab a pair of pruning shears (you can get some here), your winter coat and head outdoors. Using your shears, begin cutting and collecting limbs (or saplings). Try to take as much as you can from each bough! Longer branches are easier to work with and you’ll need less of them to complete a wreath.

That being said, you don’t want the base of your bough to be more than ½ inch (1.5 cm) in diameter. Go bigger than this and you won’t be able to shape or bend the wood fibers without breaking the branch.

Once you’ve collected enough boughs to fill both hands, trim off all greenery and branches, so you’re left with a smooth, bare “stem.”

And then, it’s time to head indoors!


Step 3: Create the Size and Shape You Want

If you live in a very cold climate, give your branches time to warm up before attempting to work with them. They’ll be more pliable! But once you’re ready, it’s time to begin creating your frame!

This is where you’ll want floral wire (grab some here). Take two branches and overlap them by about 1/3 of their length. Twist the ends around one another, then wire each end into place.

Do the same with the other ends, adjusting them to create the circle size you desire for your wreath.

Congratulations! You just made the base of your wreath frame! And from here on, it’s easy.


Step 4: Add to Your Wreath

Continue weaving wood boughs around your frame, as best you can. Stagger the placement of the branches large ends, so you don’t have extra outward force in one area.

If you do it right, you shouldn’t need to use very much floral wire in the process. Play with your frame and use the natural force of the bent boughs to hold things in place. Small twiggy ends can sometimes be pushed into the wreath’s frame.

Don’t worry if branch ends are sticking out all over, making your wreath frame unsightly. You’ll trim them up later! In this stage, you just want to keep adding boughs, until you’re happy with the thickness of your wreath.


Step 5: Trim Ends and Tidy Up

Once you’re happy with how your wreath looks, go ahead and use your pruning shears one last time. Trim off all the ends that are poking out from the frame.

Once your wreath is trimmed up, all you have to do is add a bit of ribbon or jute twine to the top for a hanger. And just like that, you’ve made your own wreath frame!


Wrapping Up…

Because these wreath frames have a vintage, classic feel, they can be used year-round in your home décor! They aren’t just for Christmas. You can redress your beautiful frame with each season’s change, use it as a centerpiece or even display it bare (I think they’re beautiful enough for that!).

What do you think? Where would a wreath fit in your home?

DIY Wreaths for the Holidays that Won't Cost you a Cent.

DIY Wreaths you can make yourself, for free, without going out to buy any materials.  

This is the ultimate budget Christmas decorating project.   All it takes is a bit of time and a few materials from Mother Nature. 

Anyone can make these evergreen wreaths; the tutorial is step by step and couldn’t be easier. 



How about some vintage pine DIY wreaths in a rustic window display. 

These wreaths can be as big or as full as you want them to be.  I wanted mine to look vintage.  Something you might find in an idyllic French Christmas scene circa 1800 something.   

My wreaths are a bit thinner because I didn’t want a fluffy wreath.  Instead of trimming them to get a nice uniform look, I also left them disheveled and poking out all over.  Rustic!

That “rustic” look fits well with the feel of my home, but maybe not for yours.

That’s ok… if you want your free pine wreaths to be fuller and more modern looking, you can still get that look with these forms, it just takes a bit more time and fussing. 




These are free DIY wreaths, but you still need to find the trees!

So a few things – to make these DIY wreaths you will need to have access to some evergreen trees.  

If you live in the desert or a balmy warm climate I am not at all sorry that you cannot complete this project.

While I am freezing my face off with – 30 degree weather you’re drinking cold drinks in the sun, so technically you win life.  I have no sadness for you.  Sorry. 

I digress – but seriously, if you live in a warm climate with no evergreen trees we should be friends and you should invite me for drinks. 

Oh yes, back to these wreaths. 

You will need access to some trees; pine, spruce, cedar, any evergreen tree that is worthy of being turned into a wreath will work just fine.  

You will also need access to smaller trees or bushes with thin bendable branches.  Think shrubs like lilac, or hedges.


Tools and Materials 


  • Large evergreen branch ( for the wreath hanger )
  • Small evergreen tips 
  • 22 Gauge wire/ or you could use fishing line, or even small butchers twine, whatever you have. But the wire makes the job go easier. 



  • Garden shears
  • Wire cutters
  • Small pliers 
  • Hand saw



Step 1

If you want to make the rustic branch for the DIY wreaths to hang from, make sure you cut a nice size branch off your tree.  

Look for something at least 2 inches in diameter.  

No trees were harmed in the making of these wreaths – I took off a lower branch that was due for some trimming in the spring. 

Don’t send me angry tree loving emails – I love my trees!



Step 2

Use garden trimmers and snip off all the side branches.   If you hit a branch that is too big to snip off use a handsaw.  

Save all your pine trimmings because you will use them for your wreath. 



Step 3

Making your wreath form is fairly easy.  

You need two straight branches, measuring 1/2 -3/4 inch wide and about 30 inches in length.  You can trim them down to any size you want, but it’s best to grab them around that long to start out. 

I used lilac hedge branches, but any branch will do so long as it is straight and will bend. 

If you make your wreath forms any larger than 48-60 inches around, I would suggest making two forms and attaching them together so they reinforce each other. 

As the pine boughs are added it puts a bit of weight on the forms.  Doubling up just ensures they won’t break. 

Make sure the branches you pick are bendable!  You do not want old growth here because they will be too dry and will not bend, they will simply crack.



Trim off any excess stems or branches.  

Once the branches are cleaned up they need to be soaked down with warm water for a minute or two. 

Dampening down the branches will help them bend. 


Step 4

Lay two branches side by side.

Use your wire to fasten them together – it doesn’t have to be pretty, it only needs to be well fastened.  Once the pine boughs are attached you won’t even see the wire. 

Once the first side is fastened, bend the whole thing into a circle and fasten the other side with more wire. 

If your shape is not quite round you can gently bend the branches into shape, but “gently” is the keyword.  I broke a set doing this because I was a bit too rough. 

I made four of these wreaths and all of them ended up more or less round. 

No weird shapes, they all ended up being fairly circular in the end.    If you do get a weird shape, I would suggest starting over and trying to bend two different branches.

If the circle is off a tiny bit, don’t worry about it, you can always sort it out as you trim and add your boughs around the wreath form.  



Step 5

Let the form dry. 

Once it is dry test it.  Gently tug on the sides to make sure the form will not come apart and that it is sufficiently wired on both sides. 

If it feels a bit loose, or not quite secure, add a bit more wire around where you attached the branches to each other. 



Step 6

Look for lush green, full tips on your branches, those are the pieces we want to use for our wreath. 

Separate the evergreen tips so that the best looking, most lush branches are set aside.

See in the photo below how lush and full that tip is, that’s what we want for the top of our wreath.  We can use the not so great ones on the bottom layer. 



Step 7

The first layer of pine branches is intended to create a base for the next layer.

This layer does not have to be perfect, or beautiful, it just needs to attach to the frame securely.  Add lots of wire around each evergreen tip as you attach it.  

The length of the tip doesn’t matter, so long as it can bend with the frame, and there are full tips almost the length of the clipping. 



Step 8

The next round is a bit different.  You’re going to want to find your best-looking tips and start laying them down one by one.  They will need to be overlapped like fallen dominos all aways around the wreath in the same direction. 

Each time you add a new branch, tie it down with wire, and then add the next and do the same until you make it all the way around.

The tighter you make these overlaps, the fuller the wreath will be.  



Step 9 

To create the rustic branch wreath hanger I simply cut my big branch down to fit my window and tied it up in the corners with some cup hooks.

My husband had a stroke that I did that to the windows I spent 4 months restoring, oh well! 

I used some twine to attach my branch to my cup hooks.  You can see it in the photos, but the curtains do a good enough job hiding it that I didn’t fuss.  

I used some leftover burlap ribbon to attach the wreaths to branch. 

I tried to get some good photos but the sunlight just wasn’t co-operating, but these DIY wreaths do look pretty hanging in my windows! They match the rustic vintage vibe I have going on in my home. 





Do-it-yourself New Year wreath and Christmas tree

This year, our family was lucky in the face of two shaggy, mustachioed-striped muzzles. And we seriously thought about the fact that it is not worth putting a real New Year's beauty on the next New Year. Well, you don’t want to constantly pick it up from the floor and sweep away the fragments of your beloved Christmas toys, looking into the sly eyes of cats. Therefore, we decided to look for options on how to make a small imitation of a Christmas tree. These ideas will also come in handy for those who have small children who know the world around them.

New Year's gifts and handmade souvenirs will be appreciated even by business partners. Now it is very popular to give souvenirs with logos as New Year's gifts in labor collectives. Only they usually need a large number, so they are ordered from specialized companies. And for your household and for yourself - you can try and make gifts, decorations and even a Christmas tree yourself.

How to make a New Year's wreath with your own hands

The first thing that caught my eye was wreaths on a door or a wall. And here is where the fantasy roam! You can make several wreaths of different styles or materials and hang them in different parts of the apartment. You can also involve younger family members in the process - there will be no less pleasure than from jointly decorating a Christmas tree.

The basis of the wreath is thick wire, a vine, very thick cardboard (for example, from an old box) or special foam blanks that can be found in the store.

New Year's Cone Wreath

A fir cone wreath can be made without a frame - just fasten them together and then decorate as desired, for example, cover with spray paint or sprinkle with sparkles.

Photo: Christmas wreath of spruce cones

You will also need hot glue, adhesive tape, twine, a stapler or small hairpins: the choice depends on the base on which everything will be attached.

Popular materials for the wreath itself are coniferous branches, cones, clusters of mountain ash.

Find examples of wreaths you want to make in advance, or lay out your materials to get an idea of ​​how the result will turn out.

Cut an orange or lemon into thin circles and pat dry. Get some cinnamon sticks. Attach them to the wreaths and the mixture of spicy aromas will create a truly festive mood.

New Year's wreath of sweets

Do you or your family members have a sweet tooth? Then you should definitely make a wreath of sweets and chocolate bars. Yes, the base will need to be chosen more reliably, because it will weigh a lot - but what a bright and tasty result!

New Year's wreaths are no longer something alien in Russian homes. This is a really interesting decoration that looks great not only on the door, but also on the wall, on a shelf and even hung on a curtain (provided that the weight of the wreath is small).

How to make a Christmas tree with your own hands

And if you want a small but real Christmas tree? There is an exit! The so-called oasis will come to your aid - a material similar to compressed sand, which perfectly retains moisture. You have probably seen it in flower arrangements. An oasis is for sale in florist shops and centers.

Grind the oasis so that it looks like a cone, but do not make the top too sharp, and then put it in a bowl of cool water to completely soak. Install the finished oasis on the base. Now you need spruce branches: arrange them by size (the longest at the bottom, the smallest at the top) and start collecting the Christmas tree. This is very easy to do because the oasis material is very malleable. Such a Christmas tree will delight you for a long time.

Another Christmas tree requires corrugated cardboard and fir branches. Lay the branches on the cardboard so that they resemble a real tree, secure them with a stapler and cut the cardboard along the contour. Such a Christmas tree can be safely hung on the wall or put on a shelf.

I also found an option for kids. Stock up on cardboard, felt, Velcro and thread or hot glue. Cut out a Christmas tree from cardboard, glue or sheathe it with thick felt. Make Christmas decorations from multi-colored felt.

Glue Velcro on the Christmas tree itself and on the toys. Mount the Christmas tree on the wall and get a new game for you and your child: toys can be removed and hung again without fear of breaking.

DIY Christmas wreath: 66 DIY Christmas wreath ideas with photos

The first Christmas wreath was made from an ordinary wheel and decorated with needles and candles - according to the number of weeks left until the holiday. Every Sunday, the children burned the next candle and counted when the long-awaited Christmas would come. The tradition with candles is a thing of the past, but we have not stopped decorating the interior with a festive wreath. In anticipation of an imminent miracle, we create a festive atmosphere with our own hands - we are inspired by ideas, we learn how to make a New Year's wreath on the door with our own hands.

H. Jourdain, La tête dans les idées

1. Colored paper
This New Year's wreath is reminiscent of the traditional Christmas version of holly with decorative berries. It is made on a cardboard base with a glue gun: for the petals you will need pink, red, orange, burgundy and gold paper. Berries can be rolled up from cotton wool or paper. Or maybe use already "cut" colored stickers?

Step-by-step master class on making a New Year's wreath from paper holly.

2. Cut paper
The same idea as with holly, but instead of relying on bright curly leaves - music paper and large, simple petals. Stick them tightly on top of each other and assemble the wreath using double-sided tape. The main thing in this case is that a beautiful volume will be obtained only from a large number of petals. We'll have to get rid of more than one solfeggio album.

3. Sheet music
Decorators love to experiment with sheet music, but in fact, any monochrome paper with an unobtrusive pattern is suitable for interior decoration. Fold the music sheets into bags, connect the paper elements with glue or a stapler.

Eva Yáñez

4. Clothespins and beads
Another inexpensive and easy way to make a wreath with your own hands is to fix wooden clothespins on a wire circle, discharging them with beads. Clothespins can be painted or decorated with decorative tape.

5. New Year's wreath of bobbins
As it turned out, you can make a door decoration with your own hands from anything - bobbins, unused felt-tip pens, pencils, pens, oblong spools with colored threads. In other words, any objects of bright color and oblong shape.

Cut out a circle from cardboard and start gluing onto the base with a gun. For reliability, secure the parts with additional wire or thin elastic bands.

6. Ribbon as fastener
We attach the New Year's wreath with a decorative ribbon that we hang on a hook. We fix the loop with a decorative button, and attach the decoration to the ribbon with double-sided tape.

7. Ribbons and Buttons
Sew a soft base like you would for a pillow and stuff it with cotton, leftover yarn, unwanted old knits or knitwear, scraps of old coats or furs. Synthetic substitutes from the nearest needlewomen store are also suitable - traditional synthetic winterizer, foam rubber, synthetic yarn or fabric. And even old tights and socks. But on top there should be a very beautiful, pleasant to the touch fabric - decorate it with ribbons and buttons.

If you want to make a fragrant wreath, stuff it with dry herbs, needles, juniper cones and berries.

8. Yarn, lace, fabric flowers
Making a Christmas wreath on the door with your own hands is very simple. We wrap the cardboard frame with thick or thin colored yarn, decorate with ribbons and fabric decorative elements.

You can even organize a wreath making workshop with your friends and neighbors: easy, fun and fast!

9. Yarn + fabric brooches
Step one — wrap the yarn around the cardboard. To make a contrasting ornament, we wrap the shape, following the sequence of the pattern, or embroider with a contrasting thread. It remains to decorate the New Year crafts with fabric brooches and a pair of beads.

10. Pompoms
Do you want to make a wreath on the door with your own hands? Just sew the pom-poms together. Each pom-pom will take quite a lot of yarn: you have a chance to use up absolutely all the “leftovers” and balls that have accumulated over the year. And for those who do not have time to cut yarn, in needlework stores you can find a dozen or two ready-made pompoms, already laid out in bags.
