Creating a wreath that transitions from Christmas to winter is pretty easy. Today, let’s create a diy coastal farmhouse winter wreath.
Hey everyone! I was hoping to bring my winter décor post to you today, but that will have to wait as the weather here has been totally overcast (go figure, it’s winter! And not the best for photos), and I have come down with a pretty nasty flu bug. Looks like I’m on the mend, but until I can get those photos taken, I thought I would share with you a DIY coastal farmhouse winter wreath.

Now, this wreath doesn’t have to have a coastal twist… but mine does. 😉 You can simply use pine cones, cotton stems, or even some white pom-poms to create the major accent of your wreath. Where I say ‘starfish’, you simply put in your favorite winter accent!

What You Will Need
- Pine Wreath (Mine was $3 from Michaels, but I’m linking to Amazon for your convenience)
- Greenery Floral Picks (I chose to use a sparkly eucalyptus I picked up from Hobby Lobby)
- Berry Picks (I chose a rose gold… didn’t want the red ones to look to Christmas-y… again, from Hobby Lobby)
- Small Pinecones (I re-use these every year in my Christmas, winter, and fall decor. Totally worth the six bucks!)
- Starfish and a few little sand dollars (I got my starfish from HomeGoods, but you can get these from Hobby Lobby, along with the little sand dollars, too!)
- Glue gun and Gorilla glue sticks
- Floral wire (optional, use instead of glue)
Easy Steps to Creating your Coastal Farmhouse Winter Wreath
- Fluff your pine wreath. This will help you to see exactly where you want to add your accents.
- If you like understated wreaths, as I do, just add your embellishments to one side/corner. First, add a pick of greenery to the wreath, one on the top and one on the bottom of your decorated area. You don’t have to glue these in. Sticking them in the wreath holds them in quite well.
- Next, add the ‘berries’. Again, just sticking them in works just fine (and you might be able to use the wreath again for another season).
- Next, add your main focal point embellishment. For me, this is the starfish. But you can put anything ‘larger’ here that fits your decor style! (BTW, I *did* glue the starfish on with hot glue. I’m hoping it will be easy to remove afterward.)
- Add the final touches… (a couple pinecones here and there, and some tiny sand dollars did the trick for me). Adding a couple pine cones around the wreath gave it a bit more ‘umph’ that it needed, too! Again, you may want to use hot glue to add these pieces on, especially if you are using the wreath outside.
- Now you can add a bow, or not. Hanging it with some linen ribbon works great, too!
A couple pinecones…
And a few mini sand dollars.
And that’s it! Easy peasy, right? Something super pretty to hang inside or outside (mine has actually ended up outside on my door)!

The Finished Product
And here are a few close-up photos and where I originally had the wreath, above my console with my window pane and lanterns. I really like the linen ribbon used for hanging the wreath.
(How do you like that real-life computer tower and wifi extender light?!)
Love those little sand dollars!
And the little lanterns, with the same accents, make the perfect match!
And the pine cones around the wreath added just enough, but not too much, ya know?
Now, what would YOU put as your center accent? Cotton stems, more pine cones, some white pom-poms that look like snowballs? Tell me, tell me! (In the comments, of course! 😉 )
P. S. Don’t forget!!!
