A Rustic Wreath is a perfect addition to rustic holiday decor. This Red and White Rustic Christmas Wreath is a quick and easy craft to make.

It’s the perfect blend of traditional and farmhouse style and the best part is that everything in here can be undone so you can reuse every item. No glue (except for the bow attachment), no-sew, and no permanent attachments.

I don’t know what is it about wreaths that I love so much. I’ve made it my tradition to always have at least one every year during the holiday season and the funny part is that last 2 years I’ve made 2: one for the front door and one for the living room. My rustic Christmas decorations are getting there!

Here are some of my past Christmas Wreaths if you want to check them out:

It took me about 30 minutes or less to make this cute wreath. Seriously!

This wreath is made in a way that I could undo it and store it easily. So next year, I can make a different one! We shall see!

I love how it turned out and love coming to the living room and see this pretty wreath hanging there above my sofa welcoming me and anyone who visits us!

This project is also super inexpensive and easy to make, the wreath is from a dollar store, the ribbon and the greenery are from a Chinese store. I used twine to attach the parts together and only used hot glue to put the bow together and glue the twine as an attachment.

But don’t get me wrong, the fact that it’s inexpensive doesn’t mean has less value, has way more than you think. I put some thought, lots of love, and creativity to make it look pretty and welcoming.

In my opinion, handmade items have way more value than anything expensive. Making my own home decor fills up my heart every time I enter a room!

Crafting Tips

  • Don’t glue stuff directly to the wreath form, instead, you can wrap strips of fabric or a cheap ribbon around the wreath so you can glue over it. That way when you are done, you can just cut the fabric or ribbon and reuse the wreath form.
  • If you’re working with kids on this type of project who are not experienced with handling hot glue guns carefully, make sure you use a low-temperature glue gun and stay with them all the time until they handle it well. 
  • I recommend using a good sharp pair of scissors. But if you are working with kids then use snub-nosed, classroom scissors and be with them the whole time.
  • Always visit thrift stores and dollar trees, you might find really good items such as cute ornaments, pinecones, and decor items to help you create an amazing wreath.

Frequently Asked Questions

What wreath form do you need?

For this one specifically, I recommend grapevine wreath form. But you can be creative and use other wreaths such as a foam wreath and wrapped in burlap or optionally, you can use a pool noodle and create your own wreath base and even make larger wreaths and warp them in rustic fabrics or ribbons.

What types of ribbon do you use?

You can use any ribbon you like, this one is a fabric white and red buffalo check ribbon, but you can use burlap ribbon, fabric scraps, or really anything that works for you.

Where do I find cute springs?

You can find super cute springs at a dollar store, craft stores, Etsy shops, or even Amazon.

How to use the handmade Christmas wreath

Wall decor – Use a piece of ribbon or cord to hang the wreath on a wall, mantle, window, or door. On a tabletop – put a hurricane vase with a candle in the center.
