DIY Bauble Wreath with Wilko

I love being creative all year round, but you gotta admit there is something quite magical about Christmas crafts. So when Wilko invited me to be part of their Influencer Network and take part in their DIY Wreath Campaign I knew it was something I wanted to be involved in. The task was to create a unique door decoration to match your personal style which sounded like a fun challenge. Bring on the baubles!

At the weekend, I went all Supermarket Sweep in the Christmas aisle of my local Wilko and filled my basket with everything I needed to make my wreath. The colour theme I went for was from their Midnight Magic range; a modern and glamorous approach to Christmas featuring rich plum tones, midnight blues, pitch black and gold metallics. I picked up a mix of baubles, feathers and stars – it was all so pretty!

This was my first attempt at wreath making so I basically had no idea what I was doing. You can choose from a few different styles of Wilko DIY wreaths such as their Wire Wreath and Traditional Wreath, I opted for the Wicker Wreath as it looked like it was up to the job of holding all my baubles.

I picked up two boxes of Midnight Magic Mixed Baubles (50 per box) as well as a few packs of Mini Baubles (silver, blue and pink). Once you are the proud owner of 136 shiny new baubles, anything is possible!

I love these glittery purple peacock feathers – the Midnight Magic range is gorgeous!

I also overloaded my basket with pretty purple stars, gold stars and silver stars. These are such a bargain at only £1 each and right now all Wilko Christmas Decorations are on 3 for 2, so it would be rude not to make the most of this generous festive offer. You can never have too many glittery stars at Christmas, right?!

Now for the real magic… here is how to stick the baubles to the wreath.

You know you are in for a serious crafting session when it involves proper wire cutting tools.

Don’t forget the wire! I brought a few packs of Hobby Wire which is especially designed for wreath making.

Attaching the baubles to the wreath is really easy. Firstly I cut off the bauble string. Next, simply loop the wire through the twigs, add the bauble then twist the wire together to keep it in place. It doesn’t even have to be especially neat, as the wire is never seen. It looks like the baubles are there by magic.

Work you way around the wreath and watch your Christmas creation come alive.

I nearly used the full two boxes, so 100 baubles for this project is plenty.

For the finishing touches, I added in a few mini baubles in the gaps, then attached the feathers and stars.

And there we go! The finished DIY Bauble Wreath using Wilko’s Midnight Magic Christmas decorations! The cool thing about bauble wreaths is that you can easily personalize it with your favourite colours, the creative potential is endless! So a big thank you for Wilko for this awesome opportunity, it was such a fun project to get involved with. Have you made a DIY bauble wreath before? What colour theme would you choose? Let me know in the comments – I’d love to hear from you!

    OMG those colours!!
    So absolutely gorgeous! Those feathers too!
    I went the hot glue method with making mine, but then half of my baubles didn’t have the hanging part left on them! Hazard of two cats in the house lol. I stand by that these are a great way to use old ornaments as well as new, I want to find a stash of retro multi coloured baubles and make another one! (not that I need one!)
    Fab post Bexa, thanks for sharing!

    • December 8, 2018 / 3:07 pm

      Thank you so much for the kind comment Kay! I was going to try sticking them on with glue but decided on wire at the last minute! It seems to be quite an easy method! Retro multi coloured baubles would look so awesome, I’d love to see a pic if you make one! <3 xx

  4. December 6, 2018 / 9:38 am

    Oh, how lovely is this?! The colours are simply divine and the wreath looks so classy. I’d love to do this (and I’m quite envious about your influencer status!)

    • December 8, 2018 / 3:18 pm

      Thank you so much Misa! I’m so glad you enjoyed the post! <3 xx

    Wow, Bexa, this is sooooooooooo gorgeous! And I love your colour choices too, it’s so nice to see something different for a change. I tried some crafting recently after trawling Pinterest (it did not turn out that well, haha) but there’s something about sitting down and physically making your own decorations that’s so relaxing and satisfying. I really want to do more of it in future. Those peacock feathers are absolutely stunning, I think I need some of those. And wow, I can’t believe you ended up with 136 shiny new baubles, that’s hilarious! I’d be very proud to hang this on my wall or door, thank you so much for sharing, and for your beautiful photos (love seeing you reflected in the baubles too!) xx

    • December 8, 2018 / 3:27 pm

      Aww, thank you so much for the lovely comment Lisa, you are so kind! I agree, making your own decorations is really rewarding and relaxing too! I think I went over the top when I was bauble shopping, my basket was full ha ha! I’m glad you enjoyed the post and well spotted seeing me in the baubles, he he! <3 xxx

  6. December 6, 2018 / 10:37 am

    This is so GORGEOUS! I expected it to be really tricky to put together, but it looks pretty easy to do, and so effective. Looks like you spent a lot of money on a professionally done wreath. And the colour scheme is absolutely gorgeous, I love that it’s not traditional christmas colours but still looks so bright and festive.

      Thank you so much Cordelia! I was really surprised how easy it was in the end, I thought it would be tricky. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and the colour theme too! <3 xx

  7. December 6, 2018 / 10:39 am

    I absolutely LOVE the colours in this wreath! They’re so pretty and definitely my sort of vibe. I’d love to have the patience to make one of these one year, I bet it’s so satisfying hanging up something you’ve spent so long on to create! You’ve done an amazing job – you should make these yourself and sell them! xxx

    • December 8, 2018 / 3:46 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment Jenny! That is such a kind thing to say! It was such a rewarding creative project, I’m glad you enjoyed the post <3 xxx

  8. December 6, 2018 / 12:17 pm

    I absolutely love this idea, and well done for taking up the challenge! You’ve created a fab wreath and I love the plum tones you picked, almost has a retro feel to it with it being so vibrant. I was considering making a holly wreath this year but I’ll probably not get around to it! I do enjoy Christmas crafting though, I’ve always got my daughter involved with home-made paper chains etc. Loved looking at your lovely imagery! x

    Bexa this is such a great idea and looks so fantastically festive. You have made it look so easy to achieve I think I will be giving it a go with the children. They can pick the baubles and I’ll do the wire 😂😂. Hopefully it turns out as pretty as yours.

  20. December 6, 2018 / 10:34 pm

    I absolutely love this!! I think if I made a bauble wreath (I so need to!), I would have to go for a classic red & gold look. I might opt for a blue & silver theme as my church has that for this year’s Christmas decorations, and I was blown away at how gorgeous it all looked. The theme you chose is also gorgeous, might have to recreate it as well :’)

    • December 8, 2018 / 4:41 pm

      Thank you so much Macey! I’d love to make some more with different colour themes, classic red & gold or blue & silver would look so pretty! I’m glad you enjoyed the post! <3 xx

  21. December 6, 2018 / 10:45 pm

    I love this bauble wreath DIY! The color scheme of purple and gold are just so luxurious and lovely looking! I was thinking you’d stick them on a different way but DUH, the wire does the trick!! Thank you for sharing the DIY 🙂 This is so great!

    • December 8, 2018 / 4:42 pm

      Thank you so much Geraldine! That’s so sweet of you! Once you know the wire secret, it is quite easy to do. Glad you enjoyed! <3 xx

  22. December 7, 2018 / 9:25 am

    Wow! Your wreath looks so beautiful and so festive! Those colours work so well together. Such a festive activity on the lead up to Christmas. I would choose red, golds and greens as I love the colours together for Christmas! Thank you for sharing such a festive post! Feeling even more festive and creative now 🥰xxx

    • December 8, 2018 / 4:50 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment Lauren! Red, golds and greens would look perfect together, I’d love to make another one at some point! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely and yay for feeling festive and creative <3 xxx

  23. December 7, 2018 / 9:53 am

    Oh my god, I love it so much!! The colour theme is so pretty and the finished wreath is so amazing. Your pictures are well are just simply perfect, what a fun project to do! I’ve never had a go at making one myself but I have seen a few blog posts now about making them so its really inspired me to have a go. I love this colour theme but if I had to choose a different one maybe a blue/silver theme might be quite nice!

    Chloe xx

    • December 8, 2018 / 4:52 pm

      Thank you so much for the sweet comment Chloe! It was a really fun project! That is awesome you are feeling inspired to give it a go, blue and silver would look so pretty! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

  24. December 7, 2018 / 1:05 pm

    I would genuinely buy this if I saw it in a shop! You’ve done such a beautiful job. It’s gorgeous, and I love the colours together (although, I usually go for traditional reds and golds.) I love Wilko – I was so disappointed when I moved to Aberdeen and discovered we don’t have one anywhere near here.

    • December 8, 2018 / 5:03 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment Ruth! A red and gold one would look gorgeous, Wilko always has such bargains, it’s a shame there isn’t one nearby! I’m glad you enjoyed the post <3 xx

  25. December 8, 2018 / 7:38 am

    I am so in love with your bauble wreath! It is neat that it is easy to put one together. The color scheme is perfect – a bit of gold and purple, hehe. Thanks for sharing this DIY! Oh man, I would’ve done silver and rose gold all the way :P.

    Nancy ♥

    • December 8, 2018 / 5:06 pm

    This is such a brilliant idea, and what a lovely colour palette! I’ve never had a wreath before (my family aren’t really into that) but I’ve decided that I want to make this year a bit more Christmassy and doing some crafty stuff. I’m so glad it’s cheap at Wilko because I’m so broke right now!

    • December 9, 2018 / 5:47 pm

      Thank you so much Lizzie! Christmas crafts are so much fun and it’s great that Wilko is so affordable too! I’m glad you enjoyed the post <3 xx

  28. December 9, 2018 / 9:06 am

    This looks amazing Bexa! I can’t wait until I have my own place and I can do things like this. This time next year, I’ll have my own flat to decorate as I please *fingers crossed*

    You did such a good job! I love the baubles you picked out! Those glittery feathers are super pretty as well. My colour scheme would definitely be either pink and white or pink and gold. I’d love to make something like this for my room! Thanks for sharing Bexa!

      Thank you so much Annie! Pink baubles would look amazing for this! I’m glad you enjoyed the post! <3 xx

  31. December 9, 2018 / 9:44 am

    Wow this is so cool! I never knew you could do this before. What an incredible wreath, I love all the colours you chose especially the purples. I think if I did one I’d probably choose the colours rose gold, silver and clear. No idea if they’d look good together but I’d give it a try! Thanks for sharing 😊X

    • December 9, 2018 / 6:13 pm

      Thank you so much Chloe! Rose gold would work so well, it is such a pretty colour. I’m glad you enjoyed the post! <3 xx

    This is absolutely gorgeous Bexa! Matches your style perfectly. You’ve made it sound soo simple to create, I think I’ve got the craft bug now. I’ve seen these handmade ones for a while now but didn’t know how to create. I’m definitely going to find my local wilko and buy all the craft material! I would definitely go for a blue and silver theme. A mixture of light and dark blue would go perfectly with silver.

    • December 9, 2018 / 6:36 pm

      Thank you so much Gemma! That’s awesome you have got the craft bug now, Christmas creativity is so enjoyable. Blue and silver would look so nice! I hope you have fun making one! <3 xx

    This is such an amazing idea, so unique and creative! Wilko is one of my favourite shops to go in. I LOVE the colours of the baubles you chose, especially the plum coloured ones – the colours all worked so well together. The wreath you made really sparkled and you’ve given me a surge of inspiration to get something like this done! Off to Wilko I go… 😍😂
    Lovely post, Bexa!

  41. December 9, 2018 / 1:24 pm

    I love the color scheme you picked! It’s so pretty! I have to admit to being overly attracted to plum tones though because purple is quite possibly the greatest of all colors. I absolutely love your wreath and I love that you used wire instead of glue to hold it all together, it seems more sturdy that way. Having never attempted a bauble wreath before I might have to give it a go!

    • December 9, 2018 / 7:48 pm

      Thank you so much Kristin! It was so much fun, I’d definitely recommend giving it a go! I’m glad you enjoyed the post and yay for purple! <3 xx

    I love the DIY wreath campaign by Wilko. I am a craft fanatic. I would love to make a wreath for each of the holidays. I would start with a Valentine’s Day wreath and work my through all the holidays during the year. I absolutely adore the purple wreath you created.

    Thanks for the great guide. I now know how I am going to make my decorations. I am not sure I can get everything and how you can also guide us on where we can purchase the parts or the entire kit. This is not only great for Christmas, but also for general decorations.
