Wooden Spool Christmas Wreath

With Christmas fast approaching (EEK it’s only a month away!), a few of my blogging friends and I have come together to give you 15 Wreath Tutorials. Isn’t that awesome?

My wreath is a simple one, you know how much I like quick and easy projects. It takes no time at all to put together and it’s so easy to customize with your very own color scheme.

My color scheme has changed a lot in the last few years. I’ve had the Green-Red-Gold combo, Silver and Blue but currently I’m into Pink, Green, Purple and Turquoise. I have a lot of Purple and Turquoise decor, so I decided to make a Pink and Green wreath.

– Wreath (I purchased mine at the store for 3$.)
– Ribbon – various colors (I got mine from May Arts.)
– Wood Thread Spools
– Decorative accessories (bells, pine cones, decorative Christmas flowers.)
– Hot glue gun


Step 1: Decorate the wooden spools with ribbon. You can even mix a couple ribbons together to make a custom look. To attach the ribbon onto the spools, use hot glue. (You can also easily paint the wooden spools before adding ribbon to them. In my case, I liked the natural look.)

Step 2: Once all your wooden spools are decorated, take out all the decorative accessories you are planning on putting on the wreath.

Step 3: Now it’s time to attach everything onto the wreath. You can use hot glue to secure them into place, or you can insert them into the branches of the wreath (like I did). The branches have wire in them, you can slip them through the holes of the spools and bells.

Step 4: Once you have attached all your decorative pieces onto your Christmas wreath, it’s time to add some ribbon. And now you have yourself a custom Christmas Wreath! Yay!

    Every time I see wooden spools at thrift stores I think if I leave this bag here somewhere down the line I am going to regret it. Then I remember it would be insulting to all those talented crafters that can sew (that’s not me). Very cute wreath!

    Hot pink is a great choice for holiday decorating. It really pops against the green and it’s so unexpected!

    Bonus points for using vintage spools. Adds a touch of whimsy I think :)

    Super cute Christine! Love how simple it is but it makes a big statement!

    Thanks for linking up to the Life of the Party. Im going to feature this tomorrow in a Christmas craft roundup :)
