DIY Snowflake Wreath

It’s time to get crafty here on onekriegerchick.  I have been trying to make as many of my Christmas gifts as possible.  Today I am going to share how I made my adorable DIY Snowflake Wreath

Supplies needed:

Wreath form (wire, foam, or my homemade version)

patterned paper

glue gun

small scissors

snowflake punch or cutting machine

fabric or crepe paper strips (approx. 2 in. wide)

Okay…Let’s get started.  First you will need a form.  I thought I had a wire form- couldn’t find it, so I decided I’d have to make one myself.  I have an abundance of 12×12 in. pieces of cardboard and decided that would be perfect to cut out as my wreath shape.

Here’s how I did it:

I started by cutting out a shape similar to what I wanted my wreath to be.

tracing shapeThen I traced the shape and cut it out with an exacto knife.  The edges don’t have to be perfect, but you do want the wreath to be about 2 in. wide.

burlap strips

Then you will want to cut some strips of fabric or crepe paper to wrap around the wreath form.  I cut approx. 2 in. strips of burlap .  I hot glued one end of the burlap to the underside of the wreath form.  I continued to wrap the burlap all the way around  the wreath form.

snowflakes

Choose some coordinating sheets of paper and cut out between 50-60 snowflakes.  I used papers from Close to My Heart and a cutting machine to cut out a variety of 3-3.5 in. snowflakes.  {A large snowflake punch would work well too}. Starting with the outside edge, put a dot of hot glue on each snowflake and adhere it to the wreath.  When the outside edge is covered, move to the middle and interior layers.

I couldn’t resist added a few more ornate snowflakes!

After adhering another strip of burlap to the back of the wreath with hot glue, I tied it up in my dining room.  Lovely!
