DIY Snowman Wreath: Step By Step Tutorial

Here’s how to make this winter wreath.

1. Attach The Snowman Sign

Use wire to attach your snowman sign to the middle of the wreath. Since we are using an evergreen wreath form, you might have to move some of the evergreen branches out of the way to get your sign to sit just right.

2. Add More Greenery To The Base

I always melt hot glue sticks in a skillet on a hot plate, and then I dip my pieces into the glue and attach them to my wreath.

Dip your greenery pieces into the hot glue and add them throughout the wreath. This adds more texture, height, and color to the wreath. Plus, when you add more greenery you don’t have to buy an expensive base.

I also added some pretty greenery picks with red berries on them from Greenery Market. Don’t be afraid to use red berries in a winter design!

3. Decorate With Wired Ribbon

Cut some wired ribbon to about 13 inches long and add them throughout your wreath as streamers. I picked out this ribbon because it is flannel and matches the print on the Santa’s hat on the sign.

Flannel also adds a soft texture to this wreath. Add as many streamers as you want.

Since I worked with an evergreen base, I just crimped the ribbons instead of glued them.

4. Add Whimsical Ornaments

You could stop after adding the ribbon. This looks like a complete wreath that lots of people would just love! If you want to add one more layer to the wreath, you can add some ornament picks.

I found some that have the same black and white plaid print as the ribbon and the snowman’s hat, so I thought they would be the perfect last addition.

Since these are optional (and you will be adding them to a wreath that is nearly finished), I suggest sticking them into the wreath without glue first to try and perfect the placement.

It might be tricky to find the perfect spots that aren’t already used by your other pieces.

Trim a few bulbs off and use them as single decorative pieces throughout the wreath. This is a really fun part because the wreath is already finished, you are just added one last touch of flair!

    I love this wreath. I am a snowman collector and out tree is dressed in snowman ornaments including one made of sand from Grand Cayman Island. BTW the treetop is a snowman woman dressed in a white Victorian outfit finished with a muff. The only thing I don’t have is a snowman wreath! Thanks for the tutorial and inspiration.
