I tried like you wouldn’t believe, but I just couldn’t do it. I ditched my plan to make a classic Christmas wreath when I pictured how fun it would be to walk up to our front door and see this nautical sailboat Christmas wreath instead. So while I’m sharing yet again another coastal themed holiday project, it’s OK to picture anything you like stenciled on this JOY word holiday wreath! If you like traditional, you might like this Easy Fall Boxwood Wreath that can be changed up for Christmas or this DIY Rustic Garland that can be used for any season.
Wouldn’t this be fun with your favorite passion, sport or hobby stenciled over the letters?
My sailboat Christmas wreath was simple to make. I share affiliate links so you can easily find the products I used. I started with big cardboard letters, painted them and added this sailboat stencil randomly across the letters. The base was made with wide burlap ribbon. I folded over and hot glued the top and bottom of the burlap ribbon and edged it with sisal rope leaving the top open as a hanger.
Hot glue worked great to attach the letters and pine picks that I pulled apart and stuck in behind the letters in no particular order.
I found a few small pine cones and added them too.
I fell for this wire edged ribbon with jute stiching…had to have it! It complimented the burlap perfectly:)
All it needed was a little nautical flair to fit my wreath;) My handy sailboat stencil and about 10 minutes took care of that.
Being a sailor at heart, this sailboat Christmas wreath that spells JOY is perfect for us and our coastal holiday decor. Again, forgive me my obsession, unless it’s yours too;) , feel free to picture your own passion stenciled across this wreath made with letters if nautical isn’t your thing!
