Create a beautiful and simple Santa's belt for your Christmas door with this simple DIY using ribbon, mini poinsettias, and glue. So easy and so festive.
Maybe I'm a little crazy, but I spend far too much time each year trying to decide what my "Christmas theme" will be in my parties and decorations. Am I the only one?
After all, it's a lot of pressure to be able to figure out the perfect Christmas party theme and craft all your Christmas decorations, your party food, and everything else around.
So I'm excited that I have the worst of the holiday planning over.
Now if only Christmas present ideas were that easy.
This year, I've chosen to go with a Santa's belt theme. I love the simplicity of it and the red, black, and yellow colors and I've already come up with a ton of fun Christmas decorations and projects that this will fit perfectly with.
I hope that somewhere these fun Christmas ideas will fit in your Christmas theme too.
I'm starting with a simple Christmas wreath for my front door.
To make this Santa's Belt Poinsettia Christmas wreath, you will need:
- Floral Foam Wreath
- Mini Poinsettias
- Black Ribbon
- Yellow Ribbon
- Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
Start by measuring and cutting your black ribbon so that it runs along the front length of your wreath and then add an extra 3 inches.
Cut a piece of your yellow ribbon 3 inches long. Cut slits 3/4 inch from the long rectangle ends on both sides. Slits should be about the 1/3 the length of your ribbon.
Thread your black ribbon through to look like a belt and belt buckle.
Glue the end of the ribbon on to the back side of the wreath and wrap it around to the front. Take the ribbon across the center of the front of the wreath and wrap it around to the opposite side. Glue the other end to the back side, creating the front of Santa's belt.
Remove your poinsettias from the bunch so that just the head of the flower remains.
Using a pen, poke a small hole into the foam wreath. Add a little bit of glue to the back of your poinsettia head (where it attached to the bunch) and stick inside the hold.
Continue until wreath is filled.
Hang on door with a wreath holder, or thread a little bit of your ribbon through the poinsettias to form a loop. (You can hide it so it's not seen.) Use the loop and some command hooks to hang your Christmas wreath on your door.
Easy Peasy and super pretty!
