How To Make A Christmas Wreath – Rustic Branch
Believe it or not, Christmas is right around the corner… which means that it’s time to start decorating our homes!

The first place I always start is the front door, with a unique wreath that feels festive yet creative.
Materials Needed A handful of twigs A can of metallic spray paint in the color of your choice 3 round Christmas ornaments 2 feet of thin chain 4 feet of suede cord Hot glue gun with extra glue Pliers Pruning shears
Let's make A Christmas Wreath
Begin by trimming your twigs to about 16 inches long and laying them in a square shape. I used 2 twigs per side because I was going for a simple, whimsical look, but you could add more if you prefer.
Next, wrap your suede cord around each corner for support. Tie them on the back side and add another dab of hot glue if needed.
Now, spray paint everything using a metallic spray paint. I used a bright, reflective silver for my wreath, so that it could contrast with the gold and red ornaments.
Now you’ll add chains to your ornaments. Using your pliers, cut two pieces of chain to 5 inches long, and one to 6 inches. Separate the last link in the chain using your pliers, wrap it around the hook on the ornament.
Flip the wreath over and glue the ends of the chain to the back of the twigs as shown above. Space them out so they are centered within the square.
