Kitchen Christmas wreath

I have been gathering materials to make a wreath to hang on our kitchen range hood since October in the hopes that I could make a tutorial and share all of the exact materials for those who would like to make one as well.  As I shared in the post about the Christmas race last week, almost all of those materials are now sold out!  But, I’m going to share it anyway so those interested can tuck it away for next year or put together a wreath with similar elements.  Perhaps you already have some of these components or can use live greenery.  It’s nice to have the exact items if you’re trying to replicate a look, but it’s certainly not necessary.

I haven’t hung anything on the range hood since we built and installed it (you can read about that HERE), but I envisioned a wreath on it for Christmas.  The range hood is like the modern-day hearth in a home and it feels fitting to decorate it for the holiday season.  I was also very excited about decorating the kitchen for Christmas this year since we completed more projects over the past year and the house feels more like ours.

So, let’s talk about making this wreath.  It’s really nothing very complicated.  Whenever adding elements to a faux or live wreath of garland, I simply use florist wire to attach the ribbon, pinecones, fruits, or whatever.  When it comes to picks and sprigs, I’ll just tuck them in, and most of the time they stay in place.  Here is a video tutorial showing how I attach decor elements to a wreath.  This is one I made last year for our foyer using the same method…

And here are the materials I used.  As of this post, the only things in stock are the green velvet ribbon (currently on sale), the green berry stems, and the florist wire.  But, as I said above, you might have some similar elements or live greens that could stand in as a nice replacement.  And, the orange slices are homemade, so you can easily make those.

I hung the wreath on the range hood using a heavy-duty (5lb) Command hook.  I’m not normally shy about putting nail holes into walls or furniture, but I really don’t want to add a nail hole to our range hood when I don’t plan on hanging anything there once we take the wreath down.

For the pot rail, I added a garland of dried orange slices.  Initially, I thought I overdid it on the amount of dried orange slices I made this year (and added to the ones I made last year), but I ended up using all of them in the Christmas kitchen decor, so I’m making some more!  I love how simple and pretty they are.

I considered some greenery for the pot rail but decided to keep it a little simpler.  I created the garland by using a hot glue gun to glue the orange slices to a length of twine.  I love how the oranges play against the copper and brass.

The garland looks perfect strung along the hooks of the rail.

I’m still working through decorating, but I’m enjoying it and therefore taking my time with it.  I’ll have more to share soon…

    How thrilled you must be to have that beautiful, thoughtful and elegant kitchen. I am so enjoying these photos. You work so hard to make things that are ‘you’….but let us love them with you.
    Don’t know one single thing that could make it more lovely.

      My thoughts exactly! There is nothing to add to your thoughts…you said it perfectly.

    After I finished making my Cranberry compote I had some fresh cranberries left over from our farm. So I made a simmering potpourri with fresh cranberries, fresh pine greenery some bits and pieces collected off the property. I added some pine oil & put in pretty jars tied with red ribbons with instructions on burning in a pot. They make great little give aways as people drop by this time of year. The jars are becoming more and more difficult to purchase because of supply chain issues.

    Marian, your kitchen looks so festive. Your wreath is gorgeous and I am definitely making a mental note to make the wreath and orange slices next year. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

    The white pot looks like a Staub. I have the chicken and my daughter-in-law has a lobster for their weekend home in Maine.

    Love the wreath and wonder how it is hung? I believe we are all inspired by your joy and enthusiasm. It is contagious and what a great thing for all:)
