How to make an Artificial Christmas Wreath Beautiful
Learn how to create a beautiful artificial Christmas wreath with pinecones, floral, and berries to adorn your door for the season.
I feel like you learn a lot about someone’s interior decor by the wreath they keep on the front door. It is store-bought, DIY, or just bare? I hope when people see ours they are excited to see what’s inside. Today I’m sharing how to beautify an artificial green wreath for Christmas and winter with an easy tutorial.
How to Decorate an Artificial Christmas Wreath
Welcome to Day four of A Very Global Christmas series where Casa Watkins Living and I are sharing 12 globally inspired Christmas decorating ideas and DIYs over the next couple of weeks. We’ve share Christmas tree decorating ideas, home tours, DIY ornaments, and today is for door hangings.
My Christmas decor this year was inspired by Renoir and has a French, modern-bohemian vibe that features black and white stripes, florals, and lots of greens and blues.
Start with a basic artificial pine wreath or strip down an outdated Christmas wreath. You’ll also need:
- White spray paint
- Floral stems
- Faux berries
- Faux leaf stems
- Hot-glue gun with sticks
- Florist wire
I was thinking about flocking the wreath but since I had white spray paint on hand I decided to lighten the dark pine wreath and pinecones with a “dusting” of paint. It worked like a charm and only needed one light coat. If you try this with yours, make sure to let the wreath sit for a few minutes until it is dry to the touch.
Hot glue a grouping of pinecones at the top of your wreath. Start with larger cones and don’t be afraid to layer smaller ones on top so it looks fuller.
Once you have a quarter of your wreath covered add in a faux leaf stem on each side for an extra embellishment. Stick to silver-tone stems like lambs ear or eucalyptus to add to the frosted look.
Attach a few single pinecones around the rest of the wreath and then place in floral and berry stems in various sizes and colors.
I used 3 berry picks, 2 large pink flower heads, and 6 small pink flower stems secured with florist wire.
You can hang the wreath on your front door or try on an interior door, mirror, or shelf.
Decorating your own artificial Christmas wreath lets you customize the look with color and embellishments so you don’t have to stick with traditional ornaments or holiday colors. Let it cheer up your entryway all winter long!
