Do you love the simplicity of natural elements in your wreaths? I’m sharing the perfect DIY Christmas Wreath for you to add Hygge to your home.
Hi, I’m Regina and this is Saved From Salvage. Welcome to my blog.
I love to share projects, ideas and inspiration to create a cozy home.
I absolutely love the looks I see in blogs from across Scandinavia, especially around the holidays.
The natural elements and simple styling draw me right in.
How about you?
Is that a look you love, or are you more of a traditional Christmas person?
The good news is whatever style you like, you will probably find it in this fabulous Celebrate the Holidays Blog Hop.
We are sharing the best of our Christmas projects, tablescapes, diys, recipes and more.
I hope you enjoy.

This year I’m all about cozy, simple and natural. I’m sharing an out of the ordinary wreath that features one of my obsessions….air dry clay.

THE WREATH BASE
To make the wreath frame, I used an old pallet cut with a mitre saw. Next I stapled and glued it together to make sure it was sturdy.
It makes a perfect base for my Hygge Christmas Wreath.
Fortunately, living in the woods, I’m surrounded by all sorts of greenery.
I snipped a few branches of evergreens and pinecones I forage on my dog walks.
I used a heave duty stapler to attach the branches.
Then some hot glue for the pine cones.
I glued a small piece of greenery over the staples to hide them.
Using a star cookie cutter in two sizes, I cut a large star and three smaller ones.
I used DAS Air Dry Clay and let them dry overnight.
Next, I used my stamps to put a little “JOY” in my largest star. I coated the stars in Mod Podge.
So I am making a little village of these adorable clay houses.
I used one that I made to attach to the base of the frame and hot glued a flickering tea light inside.
I love the glow from the windows. Again, using air dry clay, I rolled it out and cut the shape.
I will never become a home builder because it’s a little lopsided but I did some repair with extra clay.
I glued it together and then attached the back to the frame with hot glue.
I am busy making more decorations for the holiday that reflect the simple, peaceful vibe I want.
In addition to the natural elements, I’m stacking up on throw pillows and cozy throws all around my home.
Over chairs, in baskets and crates, no one will even think of being chilly in our house.
