Supplies Needed to Make a Christmas Tree Wreath
- UITC Triangle board
- (66) 18 lb zip ties 6-8 inch in length

Embellishments for Your DIY Christmas Tree Wreath
Wondering what embellishments to use on your wreath? Add whatever you like! I’ll be using a light-up sign and a tree bow.
Use a fun bow for the top of your tree; however, you can also use a star, angel, ornament… whatever suits your needs.
Christmas Tree Wreath Instructions
Use this detailed step-by-step guide to create your own Christmas tree wreath!
Pre-load all sets of holes closed on the board. There is 65 sets of holes.
After your board is pre-loaded, you will need to cut deco mesh, poly jute, poly burlap, or whatever you like. Cut 65 pieces to 9×10”. That will be about 1.5 10 yard rolls.
Once completed, you will take your mesh, place it in front of you, and turn it into a diamond shape with the curl side up. Take the corner and roll from one corner to the opposite corner.
When you’re rolling you don’t need to roll them too tight…but try for the same thickness throughout.
After your piece of mesh is rolled, you’re going to fold that piece of mesh in half with both ends pointing in the same direction. Make sure each side of the folded pieces are the same length.
Take that folded end of the mesh and place it into the zip tie on the bottom row.
It doesn’t matter if you start on the right or left side of the board. Just put that folded end into the zip tie about a half an inch in and zip it up nice and tight. Do this for the whole row.
Once you have all your pieces placed and secured in that row, cut off all the zip tie tails.
For the edge/side pieces you want to make sure your Deco mesh is slightly turned, laying along the contour of the side of the board.
Continue on each row doing the exact same instructions as above. Keep doing this all the way to row number 1.
You don’t have to use all the same mesh you can intermingle different meshes and/or different colors. A really nice example would be to use alternating lighter and darker greens.
When you’ve completed adding the deco mesh, adding the hanger is your last step.
Your hanging holes are the chamfered or beveled holes in row one. Place a zip tie, a piece of twine, or ribbon, or anything else you want to use as a hanger.
Now the fun part begins with decorating your Christmas tree. I kept this one very simple by just adding a light-up sign that I had in stock as well as a fun ribbon bow tree topper I made and called it done!
