A christmas wreath is a tradition, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be traditional. Follow our easy DIY wreath and give your guests a colourful surprise to look at whilst they stand on your doorstep.
- 2 old wire coat hangers
- Wire for securing everything in place
- Wire cutters
- A long strip of fake fern
- A can of white spray paint
- Colourful feathers
- Newspaper to protect your home
Start with spray painting your fake fern. Do this outside and make sure that you fully cover the area with newspaper before you begin spraying.
Now make 2 circles with your coat hangers, one smaller than the other and secure them together with the extra wire. Try to get a round shape but it really doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect, nobody will see it because it will be covered up with all your wonderful decorations.
Now start to attach the fake fern. Starting with small sections, build up from the outside in. You will need to use the wire to secure the fern. We added 3 rows, one on the outer circle, one on the inner circle and one between the two. If you place them in alternate directions you will get a nice bushy effect.
Once you are happy that your fern is nicely placed and secured with the wire, you can start adding the feathers. Add them in small sections building up as you go. Keep checking that it looks balanced. Keep going until you are happy with the overall effect, then secure all the feathers in place with the wire.
