So, what do you get with a free evening, 4 berry stems and superglue?
To make this project, all you need are:
Berry stems – as many as you want, but I recommend multiples of 4; I picked mine up at Garden Ridge for $1.99 for a 4 pack.
Superglue – I prefer Loctite Control with this special grip – this was my first time using a bottle that didn’t dry shut after only one use. Love it.
Ribbon, twine, or other accessories to get the finished look you want.
This project is so easy, I completed the whole thing sitting on the new recliner watching TV. This should explain the photos for this tutorial; they are all taken on my lap.
Step 1: Choose the size of wreath you want. This will effect how full the wreath gets and the curve that each branch will have.
Step 2: Shape the curve of each stem.
Step 3: Overlap one stem over another, making sure that the berries are all curving in the same direction. I placed the top half of Stem 1 on the bottom half of Stem 2. Apply superglue to the areas that touch, holding a few seconds to let dry.
Step 4: Continue the overlapping process until you have formed a complete circle.
Step 5 (optional): Repeat steps 1 through 4 until you have a second wreath, then glue the two wreaths together to form a wreath with more densely packed berries.
Once finished gluing, you will need to create a way to hang the wreath. I chose twine.
Hmm… still needs a little something. A ribbon bow, some dollar store candle holders with twine glued on, and we’ve got a finished cabinet for the holidays.
There you have it – a $2 or $4 wreath with little more than glue and twine. This project was easy enough that I created two more in gold and red for other places in the house. This wreath won’t stay on top of the leaf plate for long… I’ve got another spot picked out.
I’ll probably add more foliage to the larger pieces for variety’s sake – you really can’t go wrong!
Wow that wreath is really easy to make and looks great!!!
I can tell that you also like to “slave” over projects like me…LOL!!! Your wreath looks great, congrats!
I LOVE how airy the white one looks!
Very sweet and elegant!

Simple and beautiful (not to mention affordable)! I have that Loctite glue- it's awesome! Thanks so much for sharing at the Holiday Hookup and I'm your newest follower!
I love it! Question: where did you get the superglue? Mine always dries up after the first use so I never use it.. I hate it! And feel so wasteful, ugh. I'd love to get some of that Loctite stuff you have!
And of course I love your wreath. Obviously. :)
I love that~it's so simple and so pretty!

Just letting you know that I featured this today on my Christmas in July blog celebration
I just happened upon you and your talent – and I love love the idea of lap-work – it is my favorite style much to the chagrin of others! (mother used to tell me that she knew what part of my anatomy would be happy when I died!). You gave me a couple of good ideas and a beautiful, simple goal as well. Your instructions are excellent – all the best for 2015!
