When it comes to Christmas I believe that bigger is better! This JOY Christmas wreath fills up the whole door and is so festive!
Something about Christmas really gets me in the creative spirit. I love to turn on a Christmas movie and craft new decorations. This year, I decided to create a new wreath for the front door. The wreath is made from three smaller wreaths stacked over each other. I added the letters J and Y and the middle wreath represents an O. It spells out JOY! I love my Joy Christmas wreath!

Creating a Vertical Joy Christmas Wreath
All of the supplies for this Christmas wreath can be found at the local craft store. You’ll need three 12″ wreaths, a wooden J and Y and some ribbon. The letters were originally white, but I spray painted them red. Red is way more festive! I also added glitter. It’s Christmastime, everything needs some glitter. I traced the edge of the letters with glue and added red glitter. The glitter outline really makes the letters pop!
After the letters were dry, I nailed thumbtacks into the backs. There is a thumbtack at the bottom and top of each letter. I wrapped branches from the wreath around the tacks to keep the letters in place.
The wreaths needed a little more pizzaz, so I added some accessories. I added glittery berries and holly leaves to the wreaths with the letters. There are snowflakes and Christmas balls on the “O” wreath.
I especially like how it looks with all my Christmas lights on the porch.
What do you guys do with your old wreaths each year?
