This DIY Christmas craft feature, (which is hardly even a craft, but more of a simple decorating project) is DIY Kitchen Cupboard Wreaths. It is part 3 in the 4 part DIY Christmas Craft Projects. (If you missed the others, here are the links: Day 1 Vintage Clock Diorama and Day 2 DIY Barnwood Porch Banner and the finale Vintage Candolier Diorama
My kitchen, like most kitchens, doesn’t really have much wall space. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be left out of the Christmas decor festivities.
I love the farmhouse style of mini wreaths hung on each cabinet door, so here’s how I did it.
I ordered some preserved boxwood mini wreaths. I had an experience with some plastic boxwood wreaths a few years ago… When I was looking for a pair of wreaths to use in the living room on the windows, I bought faux boxwood wreaths that were made out of plastic. They looked great…
They absolutely smelled horrid! The plastic smell was so overwhelming I had to return them.
Back to my kitchen cabinet door wreath project… Since I was going to order these mini wreaths online, that meant I wouldn’t have the advantage of smelling them before purchasing. I wanted to be sure they didn’t smell like plastic, but wanted something that would last year to year. I went ahead and invested in these preserved boxwood mini wreaths and they really are pretty without a horrid smell.
I decided on a white and red stripe grossgrain ribbon and started this super simple project.
To try to keep each wreath at the same level on the cabinet doors, I measured and cut each piece of ribbon the same length, 24″.
Just a quick staple in the ends after I looped it through the center of the wreath would hold the ribbons from slipping apart.
The final part was just taping the stapled end inside the cabinet door.
Now, I have to clarify…
Taping them inside my cabinets happened to work great. My cabinets have a factory finish paint finish that won’t be damaged from being taped for a few weeks. However, if your cabinets are different, you could instead mount the ribbon to the top of the door with a sharp tack, like a carpet tack, or try a couple spots of poster tack putty.
This project literally took me 15 minutes, and that included dragging out the step ladder. The result is so fun and feels so cottagey-farmhouse festive.
This was the easiest DIY craft project in this 4 part run of projects.
