3 DIY Festive Wreaths To Match Your Holiday Decor

Minimalist and maximalist wreaths to accentuate your holiday décor.

Ho, ho, holy DIY! If you are in a festive mood, why not try your hand at crafting your very own Holiday Wreath! There is both a minimalist and a maximalist approach to matching your décor! Let’s start with the MAX! Now I am a minimalist at heart, but for the holiday season, I am all about maximalism.

1. Felt Ball Rainbow Wreath

You will need:

  • Foam wreath form
  • 2cm felt balls
  • 1 cm felt balls
  • hot glue gun
  • ribbon


  1. Start with your larger felt balls and start hot gluing them around your foam wreath form.
  2. Now you can place them willy-nilly or line them up neatly.
  3. Once you have done most of the wreath with the larger felt balls, it is time to fill in with the smaller balls.
  4. Hang it up with a ribbon and you are all done.


2. Minimalist Wreath

You will need:

  • Gold wreath hoop
  • Ornaments
  • fresh greenery
  • floral wire
  • hot glue


  1. The first thing we are going to do is plan the layout of our greenery, you want it to be simple and minimalist.
  2. Once you are happy with the look, you can use green floral wire to attach the fresh greenery to the wreath form.
  3. Next, we are going to add in some ornaments, I chose black matte balls to keep it minimalist and modern. I would wire or hot glue these to your frame, depending on the style of ornament you use
  4. The final touch is to add a few hanging ornaments.
  5. The key to this look is to keep it very monochromatic. The natural wood, black and green work very well together.

3. Modern Wreath

If you don’t want to embrace minimalism or maximalism for the Holiday season you can embrace Dare-ism! Here is a classic Christian Dare approach to a holiday wreath. It’s DIY, it’s modern and looks simple but probably will take you longer than you think to make.

You will need:

  • coloured or material paper
  • foam wreath form
  • hot glue
  • Craft knife
  • Patience


  1. First things first, we are going to make a variety of polygon shapes out of paper. I found this template online and simply adjusted it in scale and printed them out on my coloured paper.
  2. Next cut them out and glue together your polygons.
  3. Before we start placing our polygons on the wreath form, I would suggest painting out the white foam form so that it blends in better.
  4. Then it is as simple as placing them on your wreath. Always start with the larger pieces and then fill in with the smaller ones.
  5. Hang it up and you’re done.
