I don’t consider myself a super crafty person, so I like to keep my crafts very simple.  This DIY holiday craft was no different.

This holiday wreath is so crazy simple – all you do is wrap fuzzy sticks (also called chenille stems or pipe cleaners) around a wire wreath frame.  That’s totally it!

I got all of my materials at Dollar Tree and I’ve seen similar items at Walmart.  I paid a dollar for the wreath wire and a dollar for each of about 4 packages of fuzzy sticks.

For an example of what I used, click here to see a holiday craft package that contains fuzzy sticks similar to what I got at Dollar Tree.

Below is a photo of examples of the raw materials.  As you can see, this craft only requires 2 types of materials!

 

This can easily be done for under $5 in 3 EASY steps!  And, this would be a great craft activity project to do with kids!

 

EASY STEP 1 – Choose your fuzzy stick color(s) and decide on your design

I chose sparkly green and sparkly red.

For my design, I chose color blocking with 2 colors, but you could alternate each fuzzy stick. I wrapped about 5 or so of the same color for each color block. Your design will, of course, determine how many fuzzy stick packages you need.

EASY STEP 2 – Simply wrap each fuzzy stick around the frame as many times as possible.

If the final stretch of the stick doesn’t fully cover the frame (reaches half-way up, for example), just slightly tuck it behind the previous stem; then, overlap it a bit with the next stem.  This might be visible on the reverse but it will likely not be visible on the front.

EASY STEP 3 – If you’d like a hook for hanging your wreath, just attach one of the fuzzy wire sticks as a loop.

That’s it!

I left mine as is – I kind of like the simplicity.  But, the possibilities are endless if you want to get out the glue gun and attach Christmas bows or a winter scene. 

Have fun!  I’d love to hear what you do!

This is so easy you can make one for everyone on your list in no time!

There it is! Have you ever tried something similar?  I’d love to see your creations!
