Gather Your Materials
To make this classic style of wreath, start by collecting the essentials: a wreath of course, velvet ribbon, twine, scissors and a few rattan bell ornaments. Consider this your festive toolkit!
DIY WREATH SUPPLIES
We only used a handful of items to make this classic wreath and had it done in under 20 minutes! No gluing required!
- Artificial Wreath
- Rattan Ornaments
- (Optional Copper Bell Ornaments if you prefer that look)
- Velvet Ribbon
- Scissors, Pliers
As always, we appreciate you purchasing through our affiliate links (at no extra cost to you!) so we can keep providing free content. 🙂
The only DIY skills you need to do is simply attach the rattan bell ornaments to the wreath! We used a piece of jute to layer then bells to lightly overlap each other to hang in a 1-2-3 pattern.
Tie on Velvet Ribbon
Lastly, a festive ribbon is the perfect finishing touch as it ties the elements together to add a splash of holiday cheer. Velvet is our current go-to ribbon and we used a classic red hue for this classic wreath.
Ways to Hang Wreaths
Despite the front door being the most obvious (and popular) way to hang a wreath, you can use suction cups to display on windows or 5 lb Command Hooks for another spot in your home. We used a small finishing nail in our wood front door so we can easily swap our vast collection of seasonal wreaths. (However, if you are hanging a Christmas wreath on the door, we have had good success with these adjustable wreath hangers.)
However or wherever you hang it, it will be sure to add an instant festive flair to that space!
