Hey guys! So I’m finally getting around to doing some Christmas projects. I feel like I’m starting super late because it seems like everyone else and their sister started decorating on November 1st. And as a DIY blogger, I should really be starting at the same time, if not earlier! Oh well, maybe next year.
Anyhoos, I love using natural elements I can gather around my yard for decorating. It’s a great way to incorporate a little of the outdoors inside, and the price is right too! 🙂
Make A Christmas Wreath Using Natural Elements
For this project, you will need:
- 18″ grapevine wreath
- Redwood leaves
- Redwood pine cones
- Berries from a Nandina bush
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Rust-Oleum Chalked spray paint in Linen White (where to buy)

If you don’t have a redwood tree or a Nandina bush in your yard, don’t be afraid to substitute elements that you do have available to you.
Spray paint the wreath and the berries if you like. I wanted a neutral look, so I lightly sprayed the berries to tone down the red, but still leave a bit showing to give them a frosted look. If you want more traditional Christmas colors, you can skip painting the berries. Also, don’t try to paint every nook and cranny of the wreath – you’ll waste a lot of paint and drive yourself crazy in the process (I speak from experience here). Just spray paint what you can see easily and don’t worry about the rest.
Work in the redwood leaves around the wreath, securing with hot glue as needed. Do the same with the pine cones and berries, alternating them as you work around the wreath. I didn’t need much hot glue at all as most everything stood in place just by working them into the wreath.
That’s all there is to it! It’s so easy to make and the results are gorgeous!
I hope you enjoyed my post about how to make a Christmas wreath using natural elements, l and I hope it inspires you to make one for yourself!
Happy holiday decorating!
