I don’t know what it is about Christmas that makes me want to get all crafty and make items for both gifting and decorating my home. From this festive joy sign to making bath bombs, I love a Christmas craft activity. This year I have made my first ever Poundland Christmas wreath and I am really excited to share it with you. It took me about 30 minutes to create whilst listening to Christmas music, and there were lots of materials left over so I could have made more. Keep reading to find out more about how I made this Poundland Christmas wreath and to win everything you need to create your own!

As I mentioned there were plenty of items left over for other crafts so you could make more wreaths or do what I did which was to fill a clear vase with the items to make a Christmas themed centrepiece.
How to make the Poundland Christmas wreath
Start off your wreath by covering the wreath base with the greenery.
You can then spray your wreath with snow spray if you would like.
I went for an uneven snow spray effect, to mimic how it would fall in real life.
Before gluing your items to the wreath lay them out until you find a layout that you like.
This gives you a chance to see what works really well for your wreath, and chop and change things as you like.
Using the glue gun and glue sticks, carefully glue down the decorations and allow to dry.
Once dry, gently lift up your Christmas wreath to see if anything falls off. If anything does then use more glue or change where you have placed the glue on the decoration.
An optional step at the end is to spray some more snow spray onto your Poundland Christmas wreath. I absolutely love how it looks here with a little bit of snow spray on.
And there you have it – a Christmas wreath made with Poundland decorations.
