How to Make an Owl Wreath
Step One: Start with a Basket Wreath
It’s very simple to make your own basket wreath using a recycled box, a small twigs, and this tutorial. Or you can buy this wall basket to use as your basket wreath.
This DIY basket wreath originally began as a Fall Wreath. Click here to see the complete tutorial.
I loved the texture of the branches and the bright yellow of the flowers. But it was time for something new!
Step Two: Fill Basket with Floral Foam
Fill the basket with Floral Foam if you are starting with a new basket.
I carefully pulled out all the flowers from the Fall Branch Basket Wreath and re-glued a few of the branches that came loose. The floral foam was hot glued inside the box so I didn’t have to add more.
Step Three: Gather Evergreen Branches
Our three children are always asking if I need help with craft projects. This time I asked one of the boys to trim a handful of small branches from the arbor vitae tree in the backyard.
Honey (my husband) insists on a real Christmas tree for his back porch man cave. So this year I helped myself to several of the fraser fir branches.
Kitchen shears made quick work of both clippings.
Step Four: Start Building an Evergreen Nest for the Owls
Start with the sturdier fir branches in the back. Fill in with the wispy arbor vitae.
This process went so quickly that I forgot to snap pictures. Just keep adding greenery until the floral foam is hidden.
Step Five: Add Woodland Owls
Aren’t these owls the cutest things ever? Their fuzzy, white bodies are going to pop against the deep green of the branches.
One of the owls nestled right into the greenery. The other owl required a bit of wire (Christmas ornament hanger) to stay on the winter wreath.
Step Six: Finish the Winter Owl Wreath
Carefully place Snowflake Ornaments into the greenery then drizzle on Faux Snow. The ornaments are so lightweight they are held in place by the branches.
The crochet snowflakes on my wreath are from my grandmother. She made them years ago and shared them with me.
Finally, finish with a Wire Ribbon Bow.
Owl Wreath for a Winter Front Door
This is such a fun winter decorating idea. I love how the green and white pops against our red front door. Plus all the backyard evergreen branches make it almost free!
Oh hello, little fellow! Welcome to my front porch!
Here’s his sweet friend on the other side of the owl wreath. His fuzzy feathers cracks me up!
These plastic snowflake ornaments came from the Dollar Store. The sparkle really makes me happy!
I hope you have been inspired to seek out a few woodland white owls and create your own Owl Wreath for a Winter Front Door. You can make this simple owl wreath with just a few craft supplies, white owls, and greenery from your yard.

This is adorable and perfect for your winter front door. Seeing this reminds me that my front door has no wreath and that I need to remedy it. Thanks for the great idea!
So cute! I love it – I need a good winter wreath that isn’t Christmas-y!
YAY! I’m so happy that you love it. It’s a perfect non-Christmas-y winter wreath!
Cute, Ashley! Perfect for winter decorating.
Thanks so much, Kim! Those little fuzzy owls make me happy!
I am obsessed with wreaths too, but haven’t had a chance to make a winter one yet :(. I love the basket and those little owls are awesome!
Hee hee those little owls made me laugh!
