Make a Smart Paper Christmas Wreath Tutorial

44 views  •  30 Nov 2023

Instructions for Creating a Long-Lasting Paper Christmas Wreath

Craft a wreath with the potential to endure for a lifetime using cutouts of leaves and berries made from scraps of card or paper. Our wreath incorporates traditional foliage shapes and colors such as green holly, mistletoe, and red berries. However, for a more contemporary touch, you can opt for rich jewel tones or even white and gold.

  • 300mm (12in) rattan wreath
  • Assorted green, red, and white paper or thin cardstock
  • Tracing paper and a pencil
  • Scissors
  • Scoring tool
  • Hot-glue gun, glue stick, or PVA glue along with a paintbrush
  • Cocktail stick

  • Cutting mat

Making a Votive Wrap

Create little leaves from deep-pink thin cardstock or paper freehand. Score each leaf. Apply a small amount of PVA glue to the tips of some leaves and dip them into gold glitter. Shake off the excess and let them dry.

Glue the leaves onto a 100mm (4in) diameter rattan wreath. Finally, place a glass votive in the center, insert an artificial tealight, and admire the magical twinkle as the light reflects off the glitter.


Completing Your Wreath

Hang your paper Christmas wreath above a mantle or shelf adorned with gifts, foliage, and candles for a charming display.
