Make a Holiday Wreath That's So Boho-Chic

Not all wreaths have to be round. Case in point: this natural beauty. It’s minimalist, bohemian and oh-so-festive.

Boho Holiday Wreath

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • Copper pipe or wood dowel
  • Macrame rope
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Various holiday greens
  • Small ornaments
  • Flora wire or tape
  • Masking tape
  • Instructions

    1. Thread the Pipe

    Cut a length of macrame rope and thread it through your copper pipe. Bring the two ends of your rope together and tie a simple knot. Pull the rope through the pipe until the knot is hidden.

    2. Work Your Rope

    Cut another length of your macrame rope. To determine how long it should be, measure out two arm-lengths and snip. Bring the two ends of your rope together to find the center point. Rest the loop over the top of the copper pipe and thread your rope through and around, securing the rope to the pipe. Continue adding rope until your pipe is covered.

    3. Unravel

    Once the rope is secured, it’s time to unravel. Start twisting and pinching, working from the top down until each piece is separated. Continue working piece by piece, cord by cord until you have unraveled rope draping down the length of your pipe.

    4. Get Out the Greenery

    Set your rope piece aside and turn your full attention to the holiday greenery part of this project. You can use any wintry greens here (we went with eucalyptus). Work from the outside in, securing your greenery in place with floral wire or tape to the faux stem.

    5. Deck With Details

    Once you have your base florals fastened together, add the details. (We used pine cones and Christmas ornaments.)

    Pro Tip: Grouping your ornaments together makes the project look so good. String three together with wire, then tie ‘em onto your stem. Use craft glue to secure the other details into place.

    6. Fasten It All Together

    Bring the rope piece back out and tape the top of your hanging rope down to your table. This tautness will make it easier to place your floral piece.

    Lay the florals where you want across then hanging rope. Thread a length of wire through the floral stem and wrap it around the rope to fasten the two pieces together. Repeat on the other side of your florals. Make sure you pull the wire tight so nothing falls off when you hang this baby up!

      I’m glad I didn’t pay the usual amount to rejoin Craftsy. Very disappointed with the level of knowledge since changing over from the blueprint model. Even the $2.79 I think I paid was too much.

      Along with all the other comments, not what I'm looking for regarding macrame either. Please provide more

      Not macrame at all just using macrame rope. Disappointed there are more classes on it.

    5. Barbara Kaloostian



      agree, not macramé really.


      Just signing in to agree with everyone here, where is the macrame? Really surprised and disappointed that there are no macrame tutorials here


      Agree with the other comments, this is not macrame. Very disappointed with Craftsy's macrame offerings.

    9. BARBARA

      Nope, this does not count as macramé.

      I, too, was disappointed with the macrame offerings.
