How To Make a DIY Christmas Leaf Wreath (with Rub n Buff)

Hey guys! I thought I would share my latest Christmas wreath creation with you today. I've been wanting to make a wreath like this for awhile, and I love the way it turned out. 

So, here's a quick and easy tutorial for how to make your own diy leaf wreath using some faux leaves, rub n buff, and a styrofoam wreath form. Enjoy!

All you need to make this wreath are a few simple supplies.

I used a styrofoam wreath form, hot glue, a few fake leaf and flower stems, gold buttons, ribbon, and silver Rub n Buff (affiliate link).

 I removed the leaves from the stem and applied Rub n Buff to each leaf.

I used my hot glue to attach the leaves all the way around the back of the foam wreath form.

Then I glued more leaves to the front of the wreath.

Next, I hot glued small gold leaf stems and small green leaf stems and over the top of those, I attached white orchid petals. This covered any styrofoam still showing on the wreath form.

I used red velvet ribbon to hang the wreath, and attached little gold buttons. You can add anything you want.
The world is your oyster, girl.

To cover the styrofoam on the inside of the wreath, I attached some white ribbon. 

Here's the final product. Not too shabby for a few bucks and an hour of my life.

That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by, y'all.

  1. That's very nice! Can't wait to see your Christmas tree this year! When are you planning on putting it up?

  2. Very Creative!! I love it.

  3. I love all the posts so none is a favorite but I do love the ornament wreath. I love it but I've done a smaller version and they are not as easy as your artistic ability makes it seem !!! Yours is the ideal!!! Love all the other ideas. Going to rescue some wreaths with good leaves I'd grown tired of. Yes, you inspire!!!

  4. Virgina, I absolutely adore this wreath--the ribbon just makes it. As you know, I have been also been bested by a glue gun. I don't know what gets into those things--some secret mind control setting or the inspiring sparkly strands of stray glue as we pull it away from our masterpieces.... it's crafting madness, I tell ya! ;)

  5. this is stunning! so simple & I love the addition of the gold old buttons and the jewels! thank you!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment!! I do the hammer dance every time I read one.
