Happy Pre-Christmas 2020! What a year it has been! Which gives us more reason to find little ways to keep our jolly joy this year.
Losing myself in crafts and fun DIY’s is one way I keep my joyous spirit. Hopefully, one of these DIY Christmas Wreath ideas will inspire you to get into the Christmas spirit. If you try one of them, I’d be pleased if you would tag me on yours @lanidoesit.

Grinch Christmas Wreath
This was so easy and fun to do. All you need is a plain wreath which you can purchase from Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, Walmart or Amazon. You also need a plush Grinch. I found mine at Kohl’s, but they are pretty easy to find all over this time of year. Here’s one plush Grinch on Amazon. The size of your Grinch should be pretty close to the size of the wreath. You can see how long mine is in comparison with the wreath in the photo below. You will also need, transparent nylon thread, needle and your candy decor. If you want to add lights, you could do so using the battery operated string lights and mounting the battery holder on to the wreath.
Grinch Wreath Shopping List
- Plush Grinch equal to size of wreath
- Transparent Nylon Thread/Needle
- Christmas Candy Picks (or any candy your want)
- Over the Door Hanger or wire to create a built on hanger
Building the Grinch Christmas Wreath
Once you have your wreath, place the Grinch in the center and create the pose you’d like him to have including all the candy placement. My Grinch is posing as if it is holding the candy. I got this look by sewing his hands in place using the transparent nylon thread. I crisscrossed the Christmas lollipops picks and twisted the long wires together in the back or behind the Grinch. This is all that’s holding it into place. I then added lights and the candy decor.
Also, I used a over the door wreath holder for mine so I did not need to add or design any hanging tool into the wreath..
Wine Cork Christmas Wreath Ideas
Here are a few ideas for wine cork wreaths. I’ve tried one and it was also a fun DIY, however, it was made using a hot glue gun which work great on the real corks, but no so great on the plastic corks. I simply purchased a straw wreath from Michaels, Christmas foliage, and a string of lights. You’ll see in the photos below, that I created a first layer of wine corks, then I placed second layer in multiple directions using a hot glue gun.
I love this wine cork wreath below by 4th House on the Right. The wine corks being placed in a slanted direction is pretty cool. The placement method is much more secure than the hot glue method. This DIY Wine Cork guide is a must read for DIY’ers and Wine Lovers like myself. If you’re not ready to do this wreath now, just save your corks for now so that you’ll be ready when the time comes. If you’re not a wine drinker, you could purchase them online or at your local wine/liquor store or restaurant.
Also, all wine cork wreaths are really timeless based on how they are decorated. Could dress for all seasons and holidays really.
This dehydrated orange and cinnamon stick is another awesome take on a wine cork wreath. If placed indoors it will permeate the room and immediately put you in the seasonal mood. Chloe’s Blog provides a thorough guide on creating this look.
Another fun and non-traditional wreath I think looks great is a Wooden Spool Wreath. This Pastel Wooden Spool Wreath is by Darice and requires a short list of supplies, but in the end you’ll have a one a kind Christmas or all year around Spool Wreath!
