Are you looking for a quick and easy Christmas project? Let’s learn how to make an easy DIY Christmas wreath, made from garland I found at Hobby Lobby!
I’ve made similar yarn wreaths in the past using loopy yarn and wool roving, but when I came across this beautiful cream and gold loopy garland at Hobby Lobby, I instantly knew what I was going to do with it, make a Christmas Wreath!!
This DIY Christmas Wreath is fully customizable. You can use any similar garland or loopy yarn, greenery, and ribbon you’d like. I’m sharing the basics, as I know not everyone will have access to what I do, so feel free to get creative and see what kind of garland you can find out there, that may work!
10″ Foam Wreath Form
2 Strands of Looped Garland from Hobby Lobby (or something comparable, mine where each 72″)
Embellishments such as floral picks, greenery, berries, ribbon, bells, twine, etc. (all of mine was from the Christmas section at Hobby Lobby)
Floral wire to attach embellishments
DIY Christmas Wreath Instructions
This project is extremely simply. Take the foam wreath and attach one end of the garland with hot glue (you can also pin the end in place temporarily, and glue it down at the end). Then, continue to wrap the garland around the wreath, as shown in the video below, until the wreath is completely covered. Glue the beginning and end of each strand to the wreath, to secure in place.
Once you have the wreath fully wrapped, embellish as you’d like. I used Christmas floral picks that I found at Hobby Lobby, and I attached them with floral wire wrapped around a few times. I already had ribbon on hand and tied a bow that I also attached with floral wire. You can hot glue anything in place too. Keep in mind the wreath is foam, so It can melt if the glue is too hot.
Here’s the finished wreath!
It’s as simple as that, play around with it and have fun!!

Below are some wreaths I’ve made in the past using the same idea as above, but with loopy yarn. Several yarn brands make loopy yarn, just check your craft stores. I believe the brand shown below was JOANNS Big Twist (which has been discontinued). All embellishments below were also from Hobby Lobby.
