How to Make a Tree-Shape Christmas Wreath

The great thing about this Christmas wreath project is that you can adapt it to fit the size of the space where you want to hang it. Use the design to decorate a door or even the side of your home. Simply add more rings or adjust the number of rings per row in the tree to make it work for you.

Step 1: Add Greenery to Rings

Snip lengths of evergreen sprigs and wrap around a brass ring. Use floral wire to attach the evergreen to ring. Repeat until you have 18 completed rings or enough to make your tree as wide or tall as desired.

Step 2: Arrange Rings in Tree Shape

Arrange the rings in a pyramid formation. To make our tree tall, 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 and adjust the evergreens to hide the plastic as much as possible.

Step 3: Create the Tree Trunk

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 4 inches long. Once dry, glue the trunk to the back of the middle bottom ring. Let it dry completely before hanging.

Step 4: Add Bow and Loop for Hanging

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 with a thumbtack pressed into the top edge of the door. Make a bow with a separate length of ribbon and use hot glue to attach it to the hanging ribbon close to the top ring.
