How to Make a Buffalo Check Simple Christmas Wreath
Despite the craziness of 2020 this year went by so freakin’ fast. But let’s be honest, I’m also so excited. As every year, I enjoy so much getting ready for Christmas!
This is my sixth year of my tradition of creating Christmas Wreaths. I don’t create wreaths for every season or holiday but for Christmas I made it a tradition.
I absolutely LOVE having a Holiday wreath to receive visitors. My door looks so festive and pretty with it that I just can’t help it, I have to have one every year.
This year for our Christmas decor, I decided to go back to the reds keeping the rustic feel but added gold so it looks a little more elegant. Lots of plaids, buffalo check, glitter, sparkles, natural textures, and wood
I can’t wait to share more of it with you, woot!
But for now… this simple and thrifty Traditional Simple Holiday Wreath idea is an easy way to add a gorgeous and cheery feel to your Christmas decor this season.
Buffalo Check Simple Holiday Wreath Supplies:

Simple Christmas Wreath Tutorial
I created this fun video tutorial if you like this kind of style! If you are more of a step-by-step photo kind of person, scroll down a bit and keep reading.
Get your foam wreath form (I created mine with pool noodle if you are interested in making it yourself) and start wrapping it with your buffalo check ribbon.
Then decide what’s going to be the top of your wreath, wrap about 3 inches of the foam wreath with the burlap ribbon.
If like me, you don’t want to use glue, secure your ribbon with a piece of twine or a pin.
Once done, it’s time to add the springs.
Then bend your tree springs to fit the curve on the wreath.
Do the same for both springs
Secure each spring with a strip of twine tied on the back.
Then insert the cranberry springs one on each side and style as you like.
Again secure with twine on the back.
Now, create a gorgeous Christmas bow. I showed how to make one in last year’s Christmas wreath video but it’s kind of a quick video.
If you would like me to create a detailed tutorial on how to make this bow, let me know and I’ll get to it!
I used hot glue to secure the bow knot on the back and then to glue the ties.
Once the bow is ready I secured it to the spring branches but not the to wreath foam.
Always remember to cut your twine excess so it doesn’t show anywhere.
Important to fluff your pretty bow when you finish.
Finally, I added a last minute touch: A wooden Christmas tree ornament.
I hung it directly to the wreath hanger and then placed the wreath.
That’s pretty much it.
I had to take the photo of the wreath on my living room door because my front door is so dark.
I absolutely in love with how it turned out. It’s like mix of the rustic buffalo check with a traditional feel. I just love it.
Once Christmas is over you can take it all down and reuse your supplies for another project.
Hope you enjoyed today’s project and that it inspires you to create one for yourself.
