Gradient Rainbow Christmas Wreath


First, thank you so much for the tree love yesterday. It means the world to me! I was very pleased with how the tree turned out and even more pleased that you love it as much as I do. Now, welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas! Can you believe it’s already Day 5?

As you may have guessed from the title, I decided to make a wreath to match my tree. Check out my Gradient Rainbow Christmas Wreath!

How to make a Gradient Rainbow Christmas Wreath

So today, I’m going to quickly take you through how I put together this Gradient Rainbow Christmas Wreath.

I started off with this wreath. It took me some hunting to find the wreath I wanted. These days wreaths tend to look so fake and cheap. I stumbled upon one at Target and fell in love. I think a variety of pine needles in a wreath makes it look much more natural, so I knew this would be a winner.

I then gathered all off the extra ornaments I had from my tree, plus some new ones I had purchased. Again, I stuck with solid colors but mixed up the sizes and finishes.

I quickly laid out the color arrangement on the wreath. I had this amazing turquoise ribbon (which I found at Walmart), so I knew I wanted blue at the bottom. Since I was working with six colors in all, I just spaced them out evenly around the wreath.

I hot glued on one ornament of each color and then I just started filling in.

I randomly added ornaments of each color and continued to fill in until I thought it looked good. When you’re adding ornaments, don’t forget the inside and edges of the wreath. This helps to give it dimension and fullness.

After that, I whipped up a quick bow (I’m hoping to do a bow and wrapping tutorial one of these days. Stay tuned), attached it to the wreath, and hung it on my front door.

I have to admit the red door really makes it pop. It kind of reminds me of the wreath on BHG’s December issue.

I decided to use glass ornaments which I realize is a little risky given the fact that they’re outside. However, my porch is covered so I think they will be okay.

As you’ll notice below in today’s Quick Tip, I really like how this wreath ties together my indoor and outdoor decorations. Plus, it gives guests a little preview of what’s inside. Kinda fun!
