Let’s make a gorgeous DIY wood bead wreath with this quick and easy tutorial. Add your favorite flowers to compliment your home decor.

Hello! Michelle back from Our Crafty Mom with a simple tutorial for a beautiful DIY wood bead wreath that you can make with just a few inexpensive supplies!

Like many of you, the first thing I do when it is a new season or holiday is change out the wreath on my front door. It is such an easy way to welcome friends and family.

Store-bought wreaths can be super expensive, so I have been making my own for many years. You get to enjoy that pride factor, plus a little crafting time and save money. That’s a win in my book!

Wood Bead Wreath tips:

Plan your design ahead of time

One thing I always recommend when planning to make a wreath, or any craft, is to have an idea of the style you want ahead of time.

I’m all about being creative and often the wreath I end up with doesn’t look like the one I envisioned, but it helps to have an idea of the color scheme and types of flowers you want to use so you can make sure you have the supplies.

There is nothing worse than going to create something and missing an important supply. This is where the holiday sales really come in handy.

I try to stock up on craft supplies when they go on clearance for 70% off. It’s a budget-friendly way to keep costs down.

Snip the wire wreath form

The wire wreath form is a little tricky to cut, but once you get it started you can bend it back and forth until it breaks. Wire cutters are definitely needed.

The good thing is adding the beads is super simple. And you can close the wire again simply by placing it into the hole of the final wood bead.

Have Fun With it

This may sound like a little thing, but it’s worth repeating. There are no mistakes with crafting. Two people can have the exact same supplies and their wreaths will look completely different. That is where your creativity comes in.

Use a tutorial as a jumping off point and then make it your own. For example, if you want to add a bow to your wreath-go for it! Crafting is all about unwinding and relaxing. So put on some music or your favorite television show and enjoy the process.
