Why Opt for a Christmas Wreath?

DIY Christmas Wreath

A Christmas wreath is more than a decorative piece; it's a symbol of warmth, hospitality, and your unique approach to the festive season. It's not only enjoyable to create, but it also adds a personal touch that’s sure to impress your guests.

What you'll need (And We've Got the Lot)

Before you dive into the DIY adventure of making a Christmas wreath, gather these essential materials:

  • Wreath Base: Choose from classic metal rings or our range of fresh pine wreaths, available in various pine varieties and eye-catching mixed pine options.
  • Greenery and Extras: Stand out with our Fruit and Berry Juniper wreaths or handcrafted Pine Cone wreaths, all fresh and ready to spruce up your door.
  • Decorative Elements: Personalise with traditional berries, pinecones, or unique ornaments to make your wreath stand out.
  • Essential Tools: We’ve stocked up on pruning shears, floral wire, and Christmas decorations.

Crafting a Christmas wreath - step by step

DIY Christmas Wreath

  1. Choose your base:

    • Select a wreath base that suits your vision if you're starting from scratch. Alternatively, choose a pre-made Pine Wreath or Mixed Pine Wreath from Boma for a quicker start.
  2. Add greenery:

    • Securely attach your chosen greenery to the base using floral wire. Layer different types of foliage for depth and texture. Or if you bought a starter wreath from Boma, you can skip this step. 
  3. Personalize with decorations:

    • Get creative! Add your chosen decorations strategically around the wreath; if you're lost for ideas, then browse Boma's Christmas Decorations or visit us in-store for the full range. 
  4. Finishing touches:

    • Step back and assess your creation. Add any final touches, ensuring everything is securely fastened.

Keeping Your Wreath Fresh

To keep your wreath looking fresh throughout the season, mist it regularly if it’s made of real foliage. Keep it away from direct heat sources and consider spritzing with a water bottle every couple of days, especially if you’re using fresh greenery. If your wreath is indoors, placing it in a cooler spot can also help preserve its lush appearance.
