This year, I’ll be filling our family room tree with these absolutely adorable mini Christmas wreath ornaments!  They are so quick and easy to make, and the best part is that they fit into pretty much any decor AND and budget.

Let me show you just how quick and easy these decorations really are.



Supplies for Mini Christmas Wreath Ornaments

 The supply list for this project might just be one of the shortest I’ve seen in any of my DIYs.  You don’t need much and you can certainly add any embellishments that you like.  After all, adding personalized touches to your decor is what making your own Handmade Home Holiday all about!

Here is the list of supplies:

  • Small wooden rings – I used 2-inch rings, but you could use 3-inch or even 4-inch, depending on the size of your tree or area you’ll be displaying these ornaments.
  • Yarn – I used Baby Blanket in white, but you can choose any yarn you like.  Avoid using anything too thick, as the mini hoops are only 2 inches!
  • Mini craft wreaths
  • Mini bottle brush trees
  • Hot glue gun
  • Optional – other embellishments such as bells or glitter


Be sure to check out my tutorial on how to make these cute mini Christmas wreath ornaments here on my YouTube channel:

Instructions for Mini Christmas Wreath Ornaments

Start by forming a hook by putting a small dab of hot glue on the top of a wooden ring.  Form a loop with your yarn roughly 1 ½” long.  Allow the glue to cool to be sure that your yarn won’t come loose when you start wrapping.  I cut a length of yarn roughly 6 feet long, as I wanted to be sure I would have more than enough to cover the whole ring.  Better to have a little too much than not enough!

Wrap the yarn around the ring.  Start by pulling the end through the loop you’ve created, and then continue on.  Be sure to watch my video above to see how I get started.

Once the ring is fully covered, use a dab of hot glue to secure the end of the yarn tightly.  Trim any excess length.



Now you can add your embellishments!  For the small craft wreaths that I used, I trimmed off the gold thread.  Next, I used small amounts of hot glue to attach the decoration to my yarn ring.  And that’s it!

For the ornament with the mini bottle brush tree, I simply removed the base of the tree, as it was too large to fit inside the hoop with it attached.  I used a small amount of hot glue to attach the tree to the ring and that’s another ornament finished!

You can see just how easy it would be to make an entire collection of these in a day.  Imagine how cute little red wreaths would be with snowmen or snowflakes in the centre.  Adorable!
