If you’re looking for a Christmas craft project to see you through lockdown, then a bauble wreath could be the perfect way to while away some cold and wet weekends.

Christmas bauble wreaths have exploded in popularity over the last few years as people look for new and creative ways to adorn their doors for the festive period.

Much like autumn wreaths or the beautiful dried flowers wreaths that are currently popular, Christmas bauble wreaths are actually much simpler than they look to create and are easy to make at home.

We spoke to Lauren Hoyal-Mitchell, Creative Manager at Hobbycraft, who shared her step-by-step instructions for making a Christmas bauble wreath at home.

Christmas bauble wreath instructions

You can make a Christmas bauble wreath at home in six, simple steps:

Step 1 – Pick a wreath base and baubles. This tutorial uses a wire wreath frame but you can also use a polystyrene frame.

Step 2 – Check the fixture at the top of the bauble and use a hot glue gun to make sure it is secure if not. This is important because the hoops/loops at the top of the bauble are how you are going to attach them to the frame.

Step 3 – Take a 35cm length of hobby wire and fold it in half. Then take three baubles and thread the doubled up write through the bauble loops. Twist the wire 2 or 3 times to secure the baubles and create a cluster.

Step 4 – Take the cluster of baubles and secure it to the wreath frame by wrapping the wire around it tightly

Step 5 – Repeat this process by making clusters and attaching them to the frame until the entire front and side of the frame is covered with baubles

Step 6 – Wire up single baubles to fill any gaps or fix single baubles in place with the hot glue gun.
