See how quick and easy this DIY red berry wreath is to make for your front door. Perfect for Christmas and pretty enough to keep up all winter long.
Bright Christmas red is one of my favorite colors to decorate with during the holidays. Last year I made a bright red pom pom wreath for our front door and this year we will be enjoying a pretty red berry wreath as part of our holiday decor.
This wreath looks so cheerful and though you can probably find one similar in the stores to buy, this one only takes minutes to make and is probably less expensive than a store bought wreath.

All you need is red berry stems or berry sprigs and a twig wreath. Maybe you already have this wreath in your craft stash. I did. I used it for a Thanksgiving wreath when I first started blogging. You can see how far I've come with my photography etc. However, I knew back then that I might want to use this wreath in the future and I'm glad I did. Of course, you should be able to get one at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Or order one online.
Making a Red Berry Christmas Wreath
The trick is to stick the berry stems into the wreath so that they don't fall out. You could add some white or hot glue to make the wreath permanent but I didn't. However, if this is going to be a gift or something you sell gluing the stems is a good idea.
Isn't it pretty? I don't think it even needs a bow. A beautiful festive wreath with bright red berries that can be made in less than 30 minutes. How can you go wrong?
- Twig Wreath
- Red Berry Stems
- Glue (optional)
- Place four berry stems into the wreath at the north, south, east, and west area towards the back.
- Next, add four more stems in between each area.
- Continue adding more stems in between sections, adding them more towards the front of the wreath as you continue.
- Add a few remaining stems in the bottom center if you want.
Make sure the stems are held in place by the wreath so that they do not fall out. If you think that you will not want to reuse the wreath you could add a little glue to the berry stems to permanently attach them to the wreath.
