How to Make

Firstly, print out your free template and use this to cut out a number of shapes from the green felt, glitter card and card stock. For each holly leaf you cut out, you will need to cut another identical piece to make the front and back of the leaf.

For the card shapes, we used the Dovecraft Bone Folder to create the centre fold of the leaf.

Christmas_wreath_2.jpgCut a piece of floristry wire to approximately 240cms long. Adhere the leaves to the floristry wire with double sided tape by arranging them in a random order along the wire.

Attach the back of the leaf, sandwiching the floristry wire between the two shapes.

Roll the wire into a circle shape, approximately 22cm in diameter, to make a wreath shape. Add a leaf over the end to secure the wreath.

Cut some of the pom-poms off of the trim for berries, adhere to the wreath to finish.

We love the sophisticated and minimalist style of this wreath, created by layering two foiled paper designs around a polystyrene wreath. The neutral colours of these papers mean that this project would also look wonderful in any home. The design is completed with decorated MDF letters for a magical finish.

Ask anyone to think of the colours they associate with Christmas and chances are it will be red or green, making this DIY paper wreath the perfect festive decoration. This paper is perfect for Christmas crafts with its traditional prints and colours, but you could tailor the colour scheme to suit your décor. The wreath is created by layering a variety of paper curls and attaching them to a polystyrene wreath to make a lovely Christmas statement!
