D.I.Y Holiday Wreaths by Duvall Décor

A Holiday Wreath adds a nice touch around the house. Here at Duvall, we like to dream up fun and festive ideas for how to decorate holiday wreaths in  fashionable and eco-friendly ways.

Pop Out the Cork Wreath

After entertaining guests throughout the November – December holiday event season, there may be some extra wine corks lying around. Don’t throw them away. Add pop to a dining room with wine corks wired to tiny red jingle bells. Take about 22 corks of the same size and 22 small (3/8 of an inch) red bells bought from a crafts store. Drill a small hole (just big enough to fit your wire through) 1/4 of an inch from the top of each cork and another 1/4 of an inch from the bottom. It is very important to make sure all the drilled holes at the top line up with the holes at the bottom. Using long, green floral wire, push the wire though all the bottom holes of the corks. Leave enough wire at both ends when finished for tying closed later. Cut another long piece of floral wire to string the tops of the corks together, alternating with the bells. Tie ends of wire at the top and bottom, twisting to close and make a wreath shape. Hang with length of ribbon.

Red-Berry Wreath

A circle of winterberry branches brightens a mantle scene. Instructions: Cut 40 to 50 branches of winterberries to measure between 10 and 16 inches long. Using green florist wire, attach the larger branches to a 16- to 18-inch wire frame one at a time, overlapping as you go. Continue adding smaller branches until it looks full; use a glue gun when the wiring becomes too difficult.

Décor-Friendly Wreath

Bypass traditional colors this holiday and design a wreath that complements your décor. Hot glue pinecones to a grapevine base; let dry. Paint the wreath in a hue that coordinates with your room; allow to dry. Using a clean brush, dab glue on pinecones and sprinkle with glitter; let set. Display the wreath on a wall.
