What’s more festive at Christmas than a wreath and what fits the meaning of Christmas more than a Christmas peace wreath complete with a peace on earth quote? All you need is some inexpensive garland, some burlap, hot glue and foam board. You could even use cardboard for the wreath base instead of foam board. We also show you the best way ever to hang wreaths that doesn’t use a wreath hanger and doesn’t put a nail hole in your door!

  • Foam Board 20″ x 30″
  • X-acto Knife

  • 24 feet green garland  This is all Amazon currently had in stock. We purchased a 50 foot batch at Walmart for $8. You can try the Dollar store too.

  • Small gold or copper Christmas balls –  Check out the Dollar Store for these.
