Step 2: Setting the Stage – Wire Form

The circular wire form serves as the base for the Christmas wreath and is the perfect size for the fluffy dusters.

Removing the handle of the duster for the wreath

I twisted the handles off the dusters. There is a thick wire in the dusters but they are easy to bend. Bend all three to fit the curve of the wreath form. Then, tuck each end behind one of the vertical pieces.

Step 3: Wiring & Fluffing

The dusters are pretty fluffy, so you won’t need to do much additional fluffling. The duster heads fit perfectly into the wreath form. I used a thin wire to better secure them. The fluff on the dusters cover up the wire without much effort from you!

If you have a glass door that you will be hanging this on or if you want a fluffier wreath, you can add three more dusters on the backside.

Step 4: The Crowning Jewel – The Dazzling Ornament

Every Christmas wreath needs a show-stopping centerpiece! The snowflake ornament was just perfect!

I wired it on, just as I wired the dusters.

Step 5: How to Work Bottle Brushes into It!

Bottles brush trees are hot! And really, how can you not love them? They are classic and decorative. So, it made sense to add a little bottle brush charm.

I added six of the trees. Mine were pretty plain in green and red, but they have some bottle brush trees that light up too!

I figured out by mistake that the bottle brushes really want to stick to the dusters. I didn’t have to glue or wire them in. The upside, you can move them around of change them out if you want to without ruining the wreath.
