DIY 5 Minute Repurposed Scarf Christmas Wreath

Quick & Easy Christmas Wreath from Scarf

When I gave my little bench in the kitchen a plaid seat makeover a few weeks ago I said that I was going to be introducing more plaid into my home’s decor.

And that’s exactly what I’m doing with today’s Christmas wreath project.

This scarf wreath took me five minutes to create and cost me just four dollars.

For this Christmas wreath I’m using a 12 inch styrofoam wreath form, a plaid bow, a faux cranberry garland, and a scarf.

Each of these thrifted things from my stash cost me just one dollar. I collect scarves that I love for repurposing projects just like this one.

This really couldn’t be eaiser.

I just wrapped the scarf around the wreath form. Easy peasy!

The texture of these fluffy scarves looks so awesome on a wreath.

To make sure the scarf doesn’t move around too much you can easily make your own little pick thingies from paper clips.

Just stick them through the scarf into the styrofoam.

The funny thing about cranberries is that I love the way they look, but I really don’t like eating them.

Using my paper clip picks again, I just arranged the cranberry garland in a way that looked good to me.

The main garland and the cranberry stems are wired so that made it easy for me to arrange.

I tied some creamy colored jute twine around the back of the bow so I could then tie it around the top of the wreath.

Like so.

Then I played with the cranberry garland a little bit more.

Supplies needed for scarf Christmas wreath

  • plaid bow
  • jute twine

And here’s my finished 5 minute repurposed scarf Christmas wreath hanging on the inside of my kitchen door.

I love the red plaid bow with the yellow, navy, and a touch of green.

Because I used my paper clip picks nothing is glued so this can easily be taken apart once the Christmas season is over.

Or I can just remove the cranberries and bow and create a winter wreath with the white scarf as a base.

Save this project for later by pinning!

    1. Thanks Dona! I have done a few other scarf wreaths, but this white fluffy scarf is so pretty I just had to use it for a Christmas wreath.

    Your wreath looks great. The red really pops against the blue of your door. Simple and so pretty – can’t get much better than that!


  9. Love your scarf wreath, Tuula and the way those cranberries pop against the white. This pretty wreath could hang on the door after the holidays. With our Canadian winters, that would be until April! LOL Stored that brilliant clip idea in the ole noggin. I never would have thought of using paper clips but now that I see it, it makes perfect sense.

    1. Thanks Marie! I know right? It’s been winter here for awhile now, and I know it has been for you too. I never use flower picks, much easier to diy cheap paper clips.
