If I told you to close your eyes and think of the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Christmas, what would it be? Would it be yummy holiday food or the smell of Christmas trees? Maybe the joy of Christmas morning? This might sound silly but when I close my eyes and think of the holiday season I immediately see brilliant red and green hues. When I started creating this DIY Christmas wreath, I knew I wanted to incorporate a few things; harmony bells and a tobacco basket.
Tell me; do you like to buy holiday wreaths or DIY them? Since you are here I’m assuming you’re like me and you like to DIY. This is a super simple and affordable way to create a lovely simple Christmas wreath.
I think I created my first DIY wreath a few years back (I know, I’m a wreath maker newbie!). Since then I haven’t looked back. That is, look back on buying wreaths. They can be super expensive, y’all!

- Harmony Bells
- Tobacco Basket
- Greenery (I’m using artificial boxwood garland)
- Decorative fruit cherry
- floral wire or string
- hot glue gun (not necessary, but helpful)
How to create a simple Christmas Wreath
- String your greenery garland through the top of the tobacco basket
- Hang your bells in front of the garland and tie them to the top of the basket
- Add pops of red with the decorative floral cherries
- Use the hot glue gun to glue everything together (if needed)
- Tie a string or floral wire to the back and use it to hang it to the door
- Enjoy your new DIY Christmas wreath!
This is such an easy wreath to make! It doesn’t require any fancy floral arranging skills. Also, because it doesn’t use a lot of supplies it’s rather budget friendly.
Easy and budget friendly; those are my words to live by friends.
Oh, one more tidbit.
As I was arranging the harmony bells inside the tobacco basket I thought about staggering them (see the picture below). I eventually decided that they looked better bunched together.
The best DIY wreath advice I can give is to play around and arrange the supplies until you get them the way you want them.

My favorite thing about this wreath is that it combines the new with the old for a vintage farmhouse feel. Even though all the supplies are new, it still has that nostalgic vintage feel.
Thanks for stopping by. If you create your own harmony bell wreath, stop on by and let me know! Email me a picture and I might have to share it on social media (with your permission of course). Remember you can also find me on Instagram or Facebook.
