If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I LOVE the holidays. My favorite traditions include decorating the tree, drinking eggnog lattes and watching Love Actually on repeat. I always love this time of the year for crafting because nobody can judge you for covering everything with glitter!
This year, I decided to focus my holiday crafting attention on creating a bicycle wheel wreath. It’s super easy to make and adds a unique touch to your holiday home. I created two different versions, one a more traditional style and one that’s a little funky!
Ready to create your own? All you’ll need is a bike wheel, some garland and a big red bow.
Step 1: Make some hot cocoa and start blasting All I Want For Christmas to get in the mood.
Step 2: Use a glue gun to attach the greenery. Warning: You will use a crap ton of glue sticks!
Step 3: Add some pretty little pinecones and berries to dress it up.
Step 4: Attach your bow. Mine came with wire on the back so I just wrapped that around the wheel.
Cute, huh? The reindeer approve.
For the next one, I wanted to try something a little edgier so I used gold leaf paint and some florals I picked up at the local craft store.
Step 1: Paint the wheel gold. I used quick dry spray paint so I wouldn’t have to wait too long to start decorating.
Step 2: Lay out the greenery pieces and choose the shape you want to create. I ended up trimming a lot of pieces off mine since they were so bushy, but it’s all personal preference.
Step 3: Attach the greenery with glue or wire. I found that the glue didn’t stick quite as well after the wheel was painted so wire came in handy here.
Step 4: Hang your beautiful new wreath near your stockings with care!
I hope this inspires you to break out the glue gun and get crafty this holiday season. Enjoy!
