DIY Winter Evergreen Wreath


Time to start on a few Holiday DIY’s! I spotted a super sweet wreath online, and wanted to try to create my own custom version using some evergreen clipping from my yard. But first, I got into the holiday mood by lighting a Balsam & Cedar Yankee Candle. One of my favorite things about the winter season is filling my house with fresh cedar garland. We are a few weeks away from that, so in the meantime, I am going to make an evergreen wreath that will last all season!

This mudroom space is my favorite to transform by the season, click here to see last winter’s look!

Wreath supplies you’ll need: 

(all were inexpensive items from the craft store) 
Grapevine Wreath
Glue Gun
Evergreen cuttings (you can use real or faux) 
Wood Snowman  
Sea Salt 
Balsam & Cedar Yankee Candle


First, hot glue moss onto the bottom half of your wreath. Tucking the moss into the gaps as you go along will give you a fuller look at the end.

Then, use scissors to trim the evergreen cuttings to look like little trees. This part of the project always smells so good! Try to have some height variation between the “trees”.

Using hot glue, attach the “trees” on top of the moss to create the forest. Glue your wooden snowman (or other fun items) in place. Lastly, add some hot glue to the scene, and sprinkle on the sea salt.

Tie on a festive ribbon and hang, it’s really that simple! I love using a bold pattern to add some more interest to the top of the wreath.

Festive holiday wreath hangs from a hook in a bright mudroom.

I love that you can get creative with this project and customize your holiday scene. This would be such a fun activity to do with friends and brunch around the holidays. I hope you’ll give this a try and share it with me over on Instagram. Can’t wait to see your wreath! 

This project was made in partnership with Yankee Candle.
