Easy DIY Mini Christmas Wreath Ornaments! Use Leather to create your own adorable mini wreath ornaments for your Christmas tree!
Have I told you all lately how much I love making ornaments? I make some every year. I make a bunch for my tree and blog, and then I also make a bunch with my daughters that get to go on the kid tree in their room (sorry, usually they don’t make the blog, lol) . I’ve already made one set of wooden ornaments, and now I’m sharing my second idea, which includes another one of my favourites: wreaths! I’m joining the Remodelaholic Creative Christmas Challenge with some amazing bloggers to bring you tons of holiday inspiration! You will love this DIY mini wreath ornaments!

When I saw these value packs of leather, I snatched one up. I didn’t know what I was going to use it for, but I love using leather, and the cording is great for gift-wrapping, garlands, and apparently wreaths! lol.
How to Make Your Own DIY Mini Wreath Ornament:
Ste-By-Step Tutorial for Your Mini Wreath Ornaments
I started by unraveling all of the leather and then gathering it into a clump together. The trickiest part of these wreaths is wrapping the leather cording around and still having the wreath look even. So I’m going to show you how I did that in this video.
Continue wrapping until you get to the very end of the wreath and then cut your cording so you just have a little tiny piece of leather left. You could glue that piece of leather to the back but I found it just as easy to tuck it into a previous loop. And when you’re done you have a beautiful leather wreath.
Now to add some greenery to the wreath. I use one of my favorite craft glues. There are so many great options for decorating your wreaths, but for these, I just wanted to add a little bit of greenery and keep them simple and minimalist. When you’re done decorating your wreath, you can loop another piece of that leather around the top so that you can hang them on the tree.
I ended up using three different colors of leather to make a cute little trio of these wreaths and I loved how they turned out. I think they would look beautiful with almost any decor style and I can’t wait to get them up on our tree.
How much do you love these mini wreath ornaments? I think they are the cutest! I thought about making two more with my grey and white cording (and I still might!), but I’m more than happy to have these three mini wreaths for the Christmas tree!
