This DIY Evergreen Wreath is a Timeless Beauty

It takes just two easy steps to make this classic Christmas wreath outfitted with faux magnolia leaves and cheery jingle bells.

Plus, it will last you for years to come. And the best part? We made it ourselves by starting with an inexpensive faux evergreen wreath! Take a look at the steps below to make one of your own.

What You Need

  • Evergreen wreath
  • Magnolia leaves
  • Berries
  • Bells
  • Floral wire
  • Hot glue

Step 1: Add Magnolia Leaves and Berries

Ruby red berries are a traditional evergreen partner, but faux magnolia leaves add a hint of farmhouse flair. To make things easier, look for faux plants at your local crafts store that have a combination of the two arranged in beautiful bundles. To avoid overcrowding the wreath and distracting from its natural beauty, place only five of the berry arrangements evenly on the wreath. You may use hot glue or floral wire to attach the stems. Make sure the leaves are all pointing in the same clockwise direction. 

Step 2: Add Jingle Bells

With greenery and berries added, all that's left to complete this jolly wreath is, of course, jingle bells! Bell finishes include shiny silver and gold, but we thought rich bronze was more appropriate for this traditional wreath. Place five or six bells evenly throughout the wreath, attaching them with floral wire. The result is a beautiful, timeless wreath that sings as you open the door to welcome your guests.
