Add holiday cheer to your front door with this Christmas tree wreath. The secret to its shape? Inexpensive brass rings, fresh greenery, zip ties, and a festive ribbon to top it off.
Use inexpensive brass rings to create a modern Christmas tree wreath for your front door. This do-it-in-a-day project is super simple and creates a wow-worthy holiday statement for instant Christmas curb appeal. Use fresh greenery for a natural look, or create your wreath using faux evergreen for a longer-lasting option. Follow the steps below to create your own.
Snip lengths of evergreen sprigs and wrap around a brass ring. Use floral wire to attach evergreen to ring. Repeat until you have 18 completed rings or enough to make your tree as wide or tall as desired.
Arrange the rings in a pyramid formation. To make our tree taller, we added two rows of three rings to the center of our pyramid formation, rather than a perfect 5-4-3-2-1 triangle formation. Once you've finalized your layout, join the adjacent rings together with green zip ties. Cut off the extra tails of the zip ties.
To make a trunk for the tree, cut twigs to the same length and hot glue together side by side. For our trunk, we cut about 10 pieces of stick to about 2 inches long. Once dry, glue the trunk to the back of the middle bottom ring.
String a length of ribbon through the top ring and make a loop by hot gluing the ends together. Attach to the top of your door or a wreath hanger. Tie a bow with a separate length of ribbon and glue to the hanging ribbon close to the top ring.
