DIY Vintage Christmas Wreath

I really wanted a vintage Christmas wreath, except I couldn't afford to spend $100+ on Ebay or Etsy. I decided to make one myself. It cost less than $10 and came out ok.

I'm far from a DIY type of person so I was hesitant to make one but it was actually easier than I thought. All I needed was a wreath, some ornaments, lights, and hot glue.

I found a wreath at the thrift store that already had lights. I also found a Santa, some ornaments, and snowflakes.

The drummer, elf and the two wooden Santa's I already had. All I had to do was glue everything in place.

I didn't take into account where the plug was located. I should have glued the decorations so that the plug was on the bottom and not the top. The hot glue also melted some of the snowflakes.

It's hanging inside my kitchen door.


  1. Looks pretty! I love the little pixie elf!!

  2. I love it! The ornaments really make it unique!

  3. Super cute drummer ornament! I love vintage & think I was born in the wrong decade.

  4. That came out great! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
