Make your own DIY Christmas wreath using natural resources

Continuing our love of whipping up fun, festive goodies here at The Treehouse Club, we’re now turning our minds to creating our own DIY Christmas wreath using as many natural resources as we can, and here’s how:

What Yule Need

  • Wire frame – Okay, so not natural but you can reuse them every year. are easy to work with and can be reused every year. There are literally thousands of options on Amazon.
  • Eucalyptus – Pick the real deal from the woods or ask at your local florist for this gorgeous, festive foliage. If you can’t get Eucalyptus, then try fir foliage instead (or use both!).
  • Moss – the backbone of your wreath and where all the moisture comes from to keep your wreath looking good for as long as possible. You can grab bags of it at places like B&Q, local florists or good ol’ Amazon.
  • Pinecones – Kids will love helping your forage for these!
  • Aromatic bay leaves – Available at any supermarket and they add a lovely, Christmassy smell to the wreath.
  • Cinnamon sticks and dried orange slices – Xmas scent musts!
  • Floristry scissors – Not an essential but does help make things a bit more professional.  
  • Reel wire is so thin you won’t see it among your leaves – buy green florists wire on Amazon.  
  • Ribbon: Choose any colour of ribbon you like!
  • Anything else you want to stick on your wreath – It’s your wreath so if you want to add Santa crafts made by the kids or Christmas baubles, go for it!


1. To begin, attach one end of the reel wire to your frame with a few twists, ready to attach all the goodies.

2. Secure bundles of bunched up moss to the frame by wrapping the reel wire around them. It gives depth to the wreath and provides moisture for the foliage you’ll be adding later. Keep adding the moss until the whole frame is covered.

3. Start gathering your foliage together into small bundles, using the wire to secure. Then start adding the bundles on top of the moss, again securing with wire to keep in place. Keep going in the same direction and overlap as you go along to make sure it’s looking busy and full.

4. Continue adding bundles of leaves until the frame is evenly covered. Cut the reel wire, leaving enough to secure at the back by twisting it around itself.

5. Time for the ribbon (which you’ll need to hang it up with. Double it around your wreath underneath the foliage and make sure it’s long enough to attach to your door.

6. Finally, using more wire, attach the pinecones, cinnamon sticks, orange slices and anything else you want amongst the foliage, and then step back and admire your work.
