Have you ever wanted to make a life-like artificial Christmas wreath? Holiday pine wreaths are a great way to bring the festive spirit into your home but often times real pine tends to get dry, and will lose its color. Whether you hang them on the front door or use them on an interior wall or as a table centerpiece, they will deliver the pure joy of the big holidays. Artificial Christmas wreaths can also be displayed throughout the winter, just change out the ribbon to a neutral color such as brown, white, or even green.

Christmas Wreaths Making Supplies:
Nordmann branches or faux pine sprigs
Variegated holly sprigs
A bag of dried pinecones
Artificial Christmas Wreaths Making Directions
- Give the pinecones a snowy look by painting their tips with white craft paint. Sprinkle on Epsom salt because the crystallized salt will look glittery in the light. Set aside to let them dry.
- Cut the Nordmann Fir into 6-inch pieces. Tie up three pieces together, select a point on the wreath form, and secure the Nordmann branches with floral wire. Place the foliage in the same direction. Continue attaching them to the wreath until you complete the ring. Use floral wire wherever needed to keep the foliage in place. It will be the base of your artificial Christmas wreaths.
- Next, add some variegated holly sprigs by spreading them evenly across the wreath. The little foliage will add so much visual interest!
- Make a cluster of 2-3 pinecones and attach it to the wreath by wrapping floral wire around the pinecones and the wreath form. Spread them out evenly around the wreath. Then, tuck berry stems next to each of the pinecone clusters.
- Make a bow with the red silk ribbon and attach it to the top of the wreath with hot glue. However, you can attach it to the bottom part too if you like it that way.
