Make This Simple Wood Wreath in Minutes!

By Chelsea Lipford Wolf

Add a touch of texture and rustic flair to any area with a DIY wood wreath.

This one is a unique take on a traditional wreath using wood cross sections from a small tree (or wood rounds).

Wood rounds are sold at most craft stores, but you can also cut your own if you’ve just trimmed some large tree branches or chopped down a small tree.

This versatile wood wreath can be changed throughout the seasons. Add some holly and red and green ribbon for Christmas. Wrap a pastel-colored ribbon and faux Easter eggs when spring rolls around. 

The possibilities for customization are as endless as your imagination!

This wreath isn’t just a door decoration. It’s an eye-catching piece for above a fireplace as well. You can even create multiples for a DIY wedding or baby shower decor.

Assembly takes just a few minutes, and it’s a great way to accent a rustic or farmhouse style. Plus, you can show off your crafty skills to the neighbors too.

1. Glue Wood Rounds to Floral Wreath

Begin by gluing the wood rounds edge-to-edge around the perimeter of a pre-made wood floral wreath frame using Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue. Feel free to get creative and glue another row of rounds to make the wreath thicker.
