Making window wreaths for Christmas is a fresh take on my favorite seasonal craft. Instead of the usual door wreath, I decided to make interior wreaths for our main floor windows.
I always start by spreading out all the elements I consider using for my wreath.
What You Will Need For Three Window Wreaths
- Three 14-inch golden wire hoops
- Two stems of faux greenery divided into six pieces
- Navy blue wired ribbon
- Red and green tartan wired ribbon
- Six single pieces of faux fir tips
- Florist wire
The only tools you will need are a pair of pliers and a pair of scissors!
Arrange the greenery for a single wreath with stems facing each other and wrap the stems together with florist wire cut approximately 18 inches long.
Use the remaining length of wire to attach the stems to one of the metal hoops.
After wrapping the greenery to the hoop, it should look like this.
Making Bows For The Wreaths
Wired ribbon is a must for well-formed bows. Start making loops and keep everything pinched together in the middle. I made my bows with four loops and two tails each. When you are happy with your bow’s fullness, wrap the florist’s wire tightly around the pinched middle to keep it all together. Cut your wire long enough to secure it to the wire hoop as well. A 4-inch piece should be sufficient.
Voila! There you have a lightweight, stylish wreath for the interior of your home.
How cute are all three of them together?? Ready to be hung in windows.
How To Hang Wreaths On The Inside Of Windows
These little Command hooks are the best! They are small enough to stick discreetly onto the window frames behind the blinds. I love the swivel hooks that give you more options to hang your wreath.
I used the navy blue ribbon to hang the hoops from the hooks. You can see only a tiny bit of it here in the kitchen window.
The second wreath is for the picture window in the dining area.
It is not easy to take photos of windows with the light on the wrong side of the camera!
The ground is covered in snow, and it is extra bright outside!
Wreath number three hangs in the living room window behind the Christmas tree.
I hope you are filled with Christmas inspiration!
