Thanks for sharing!

Today is my first holiday project to share with you for the upcoming Christmas season.

Today I'm sharing my Orvis Inspired JOY Wall Hanging. It can be used as a wreath.

Be sure to checkout all of the other projects below from my blogging friends! Check back all week for new projects added!

You will need:

10 foot piece of lattice for the frame

E6000 adhesive

J and Y 9.5inch craft letters

white paint

grey or brown spray paint

glue gun

floral wire

twine

scissors

pruning shears

holiday floral picks

pine cones

small wreath for the “O”

clamps

It's not an exact match, but I'm very happy with it!

The Orvis version is $119. Mine is $11! I used a lot of what I already had. You could also use fresh greenery and berries.

This was a really fun project, but not a quick one! I worked on it off and on for 2 days. I'd say I have about 3 hours in it. Now that I've made it, I could do it much faster the next go around.

Use a hand saw to cut the sections for your 10 foot stick of lattice. You will need 2 pieces 31″ inches in length. You will need 4 pieces 12-1/2″ in length for the center sections. Glue the sections together as above using clamps to help set in place. I left this to cure while hunting for sticks and pine cones. I started with Liquid Nails Project adhesive and didn't like it. I ended up using my E6000 which is amazing! Clamp to secure.

Gather lots of nice straight sticks/twigs. You will bundle 2 sets to fit the 31″ sides and 4 bundles to go on the center sections. I bundled them with twine.

I had grey spray primer on hand and I just used that. You could use brown or even leave natural. Even stained would look nice. I just did one coat. It really isn't meant to be seen.

I cut 4 sticks for each section to form a diamond. No measuring….just look and cut. I attached with hot glue.

The sides will be your 2 long bundles of twigs. I bundled them in 4 places that would correspond with the cross pieces so the twine would be hidden. I wired them to the frame with florist wire.

I attached the top cross sections of twigs with hot glue on each end and tied with twine. 

Then you go and tuck in greenery, glue pine cones, glue letters and wreath.

For the wreath “O” part, I took a small grapevine wreath and layered a pillar candle ring on top to make it fuller.

I am not sure where I'm going to hang it yet, but it will be either on the front porch or by the side door entrance.

  1. Thank you for the wonderful tutorial. I just got through making one myself. Earlier today I hung it up outside and it looks awesome!!

  2. This is absolutely amazing Christy! I can’t believe how much you saved making this yourself. You did an incredible job I love how yours looks it’s beautiful!

  3. This is great! I love twig crafts and decor. Your tutorial is a duplicate of the Orvis wreath too. Next, I’ll be in my yard looking for twigs to make this! Sharing!!

  4. This is so pretty and should be much enjoyed this holiday season. Yours is definitely just as nice if not better than the expensive Orvis version.

  5. Great door decor for Christmas! I love the use of the word JOY, living a life of joy is such a gift to oneself and to those with whom you interact. I like your knock off with the greenery better than the Orvis’ original! Great job! Enjoy sharing the joy throughout the upcoming holiday season.

  6. What a great knock off! I really can’t tell the difference. You could even make it snow covered — painted white — give it lights. The possibilities are endless. I think the reason it took the length of time it did is because of the glue — it has to dry.

I love hearing from you!
