How to Make a Twig Star Wreath

I originally shared this DIY Christmas Twig Star Wreath last year over at One Project Closer, but wanted to share it here too just in case you missed it!

Twig Star Wreath

Being a fan of the great outdoors, it’s no wonder I am slightly obsessed with incorporating natural elements and rustic design into our home. A few of my favorites would have to be our Rustic Holiday Ornaments made out of wood slices, and wood slice art.

Modernizing rustic elements is not only a fun way to personalize your home, but it’s also inexpensive.

The first thing you will want to do is collect some branches/twigs from the ground in your yard. I actually had some leftover from my DIY Twig Tree Ornament. Side note: the photo below is just a small portion of the twigs I had collected.

UpcycledTreasures.comI like to “bake” my sticks in the oven before using them for projects. You can simply place them on a foil lined baking sheet on low {or 250 degrees} for about 30 minutes. This ensures the twigs are nice and dry, and it kills off any bugs that may be on them {eek!}.

Once the sticks were cooled off I broke them into different sizes and moved them off to the side. You could also use gardening shears for this part if you would like, especially for thicker branches/twigs.

I then took 10 Wood Shims, which were leftover from my wood shim artwork, and made a star shape by overlapping the ends. I did this project on top of kraft paper which had some “fake snow” left on it from when when I sprayed my nautical Christmas wreath.

Once I had the star shape I liked, I used my glue gun to glue all of the ends together and hold the star shape in place.

Afterwards it was time to start gluing on the twigs, yay!

I simply started gluing twigs on top of the wood shims and overlapping one another. I used different sizes to create even more texture and interest. Once I filled the top of the wood shims, I went along the edges as well.

Here is what my star looked like several twigs and glue sticks later..

I then sprayed it with some “fake snow”.

Rather than use a wreath holder, I attached some ribbon, a pretty bow and hung it from a nail on the door. Here is what she looked like all finished:

So if you are looking for a fun and affordable holiday wreath then this is a great option! Plus you can follow the same guidelines and make any other shape, a monogrammed letter, a snowflake, etc. The possibilities are endless!

My sister liked this twig star wreath so much she kept it last year, but since she recently moved and didn’t have space for it, she gave it back to me {woot-woot}.

It’s currently hanging up on the wall across from our breakfast nook, and you can see more of our holiday home decor here.

How do you use natural elements in your home decor?
