Are you like me and still have your Christmas or holiday wreath on your front door? Please don’t tell me it’s just me. We’ve got everything else taken down, but I discovered I still had my holiday wreath on my front door the other day and was slightly embarrassed. Knowing how many neighbors and FedEx men have stopped by my house recently made me realize that I needed to create a winter wreath to replace it with ASAP. So after spying a few pretty antique snowflake ornaments the other day, I was inspired to use them to create my own rustic DIY snowflake wreath to hang on my front door! This craft is quick, easy and oh-so-cute! So keep reading to see all the details!
- Darice 12″ Grapevine Wreath (1)
- 8″ Darice Antique Snowflake (4)
- 6″ Darice Antique Snowflake (4)
- 4″ Darice Antique Snowflake (4)
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Darice Scissors
You will begin your DIY snowflake wreath by taking the tag off of your wreath and snipping the jute string hanger off of the snowflakes. Just snip as close to the actual snowflake as possible. It’s fine if a little is left on the wooden snowflake.
Then you will lay out your first layer of snowflakes as you like. I decided that (4) 8″ snowflakes would fit perfectly around the 12″ wreath and would make a great first layer.
*If you are having trouble getting it to stick, you can always flip your wreath over and add additional hot glue from the back.
Now that it is created, I can’t decide if I want to keep it inside or outside. It looks so pretty inside but I probably should get it on my front door before someone else sees that I still have a Christmas wreath hanging up on it!
