A DIY Mini Wreath For My Kitchen Cabinets

I'm back today to share a really easy and inexpensive way to add those festive wreaths to your kitchen cabinets. Actually, you could use these anywhere around the house. I've seen them used as part of a place setting, hung over mirrors, used as a base to hold a candle, etc. 

Here's my DIY version for about $3!


mini wreath tutorial

Some of you may remember my Fixer Upper inspired post I did back in February. That was the first time I attempted to make one of these wreaths. You can see that old post HERE

You'll need one six inch grapevine wreath, a sprig of boxwood, hot glue, and ribbon. 

The wreaths came in a two pack for $1.99 and I had one left, so I used it for this project.



Here's the boxwood. This was also left over from my last project. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for about $2.40 after my coupon. 



I basically cut off little pieces and hot glued them onto the wreath. (if you click on my old fixer upper inspired post HERE you can see pics of this process)

Then I looped the ribbon through the wreath and hot glued it to the back part of the ribbon. You can see in the pic below instead of making one huge loop and bringing the ribbon back up to the top, I just glued the little "tail" of the ribbon to the underside. (It saves a lot of ribbon this way and works well if you're not hanging anything very heavy) 



Then I used a little hot glue to adhere the top of the ribbon to the inside of my cabinet door. Don't worry, the hot glue will pop right off after Christmas. 


And there you have it! 


I've always adored the look of tiny wreaths on cabinets during the holidays!


This project was totally free for me since I already had the leftover wreath, boxwood, and ribbon. Love when that happens!

Y'all have a great day!

  1. Very sweet. I have some wreaths I bought at the dollar store years ago and have been hanging them on my glass cabinets for years. I have always anchored the ribbon with tape...and it usually gives out half way through the season. Never thought about the glue gun. Great idea!
