DIY Honeycomb Wreath

I’m so glad that honeycomb paper is shedding its tacky reputation — think 80’s school dances, seasonal supermarket decorations hanging above the produce department — you get the idea. This festive honeycomb wreath will surely brighten up any room and spread some holiday cheer.

Honeycomb Wreath DIY | Oh Happy Day!

Materials needed: 16” diameter styrofoam wreath form, honeycomb palm tree picks, scissors, straight pins, green crepe paper streamer, assorted honeycomb balls in green, reds and pinks.

Step 1: Begin by covering the wreath form with green crepe paper. Secure with straight pins.
Step 2: Assemble the palm tree picks, honeycomb balls, and fans. Experiment with cutting different shapes and size balls and fans.
Step 3: Create ‘trees’ by stacking three palm tree picks. While the paper is flat, trim the tissue paper to create the middle and top of the tree.
Step 4: Being sticking the trees into the floral wreath. You may have to cut the ends of the toothpicks so they don’t poke out the backside.
Step 5: Using straight pins, begin securing the red and pink honeycomb decorations. Use a random mix for variety. There’s no right or wrong way to do this step – just fill up the wreath!
Step 6: Add a ribbon loop on the back for hanging. Alternately, you could loop a ribbon through the wreath to hang.
Step 7: Optional: add a written “banner” to say Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings or Bah Humbug, whatever you heart desires!
