This is a small wreath that will look good with your other Christmas decorations :-). It's mostly made of green connectors and white rods, plus red "berries" and a red ribbon at the bottom. I also included some fake lights. This only took a day to build. Fun fact: this Instructables uses 149 pictures.

This is an entry to a Knex contest. EDIT: it won 1st place in the contest!

This was also a first prize winner in the Homemade Holidays Contest, thanks to everyone who voted!


Step 1: Parts List

Before you begin building, gather all of these parts. There's only 10 kinds of pieces. 

Rods: 227

  • green-153
  • white-74

Connectors: 140

  • dark gray-1
  • light gray-4
  • red-22
  • green-109
  • white-4

Other: 15

  • Y clip-5
  • metallic blue clip-1
  • head cap-9

Total:  382

If you have all of those pieces, then let's get building!


I'd love to make this could you should us how?
<p>These are the instructions, so you should be able to go through the 19 steps. Just as a warning though, it can get complicated at times because all the sections look similar to each other.</p>
<p>Nice model! I'd build it, but I don't have enough green connectors. :-(</p>
<p>I guess this is gonna be popular this month... :)</p><p>Be a shame if someone picked it off the door on Christmas though... lol</p>
<p>Haha, that would indeed be bad to have it stolen.</p>
I finally finished! Here's the picture
<p>That looks nice, I like the use of both classic green and metallic green. Thanks for building!</p>
I hope I have enough green connectors! If I do, ill definitely hang this on my room door! :D
<p>Sounds great! If you don't have enough, you could try making it with a different color, like yellow, grey, or purple. :-P</p>
<p>thanks it is verry nice;)</p>
hmmmmm i will have to check if i have enough green connectors <br> <br> <br>hope i do:)
I built it again this year, in metallic green connectors. It's hanging up in the library my mom works at. :-) I'll get pictures once I get it back.
I posted pictures. :-)
Hmm i prefer the original
Me too, but I still like it. :-P
Yup <br><br>And you just got my 1900th Comment!!
sorry all that the pics were SOOO late! :( I got rely busy, but hear they are! :D
Nice, I like the purpleness! I put it on the last step.
hehehe! :P thanks! I had good instructions! :D
Thanks! I was a bit worried that the instructions would be confusing, since each section looks alike. :-P
they were a tad, (no offense) but, i like a good challenge! :D
Haha. :-P
ok, i was thinking the gray conector bellow the red connector, but i think i will run string through both, and put it on a nail! :D
Okay, good luck!
suggestions on how to hang it up?(gona post pics tomaro(hopefully!))
The red connector at the top can have a nail going through it.
loce bis is amzimng
If you're saying that it's amazing, then thanks!
i was gona build this, but than, counted the peices, and.... NOT ENOUGH GREEN COUNECTERS!! NOO! so sad! :C GOOD INSTRUCTABLE! would have liked to built it!
Thanks! If you want, you can replace most of the green connectors with purple connectors. It would be cool to see a purple (or gray metallic) wreath.
thats a good idea!! i will make it in purple! :P ill post pics once done!
Nice, good luck! I may try a yellow wreath.
quick quistion, are the head caps necisary?
No, they are just for looks.
COOL! :D thanks for all the helps, ill post pics once done.
Cool! I'll put the pictures on the last step when you post them.
POST PONED: gona build next month
Probably a good idea, since it'll be closer to Christmas.
Ive been waiting a whole year to build this ( i found it after christmas so there was no point building) and now i can... Although im still a bit earlie!!
Good luck building it!
Finished!!! The only bad part is that its a bit weak while its not a full circle. The only bad part for me is that my box with all the fake lights in was right at the bottem of my toy wardrobe (yes i have a wardrobe for toys) so when i pulled it out everything came crashing down on me!!! And then my large wallet full of knex and lego manuals opended up and spilled all over the floor!!! When i had finaly put it all back i opened the box that i needed and all i found was 2 yellow fake lights!!! I later found two more in the original knex box witch hurts to open! I added more red connectors and glowing green connecters to make it look more coulerful because i had no red fake lights.
What a mess! :-P Do you have a picture?
No, but i would be able to show you everything in there but my laptop wont work and i got school (groans) with a english exzam im not prepared for.
&nbsp;uhm can u take a pic og it from far away? like from 20ft away outside??<br /> Thankyou so much. ALso... stars to you my friend! Wonderful job, keep on building :)
Thanks! I can't get any more pictures, since I took it apart already.<br />
