Christmas Wreaths

I have had a break from my blog but I have still been busy creating.

I have been making these Christmas Wreaths for a few years now and the two I am sharing today and my most recent creations.

The first one is made using Stampin' Up Merry Moments Designer Series Paper, which is in the Annual Catalogue.

The ribbon is not Stampin' Up.

This second wreath is made with Stampin' Up Winter Wonderland Speciality Designer Series Paper, which is in the current Holiday Catalogue.

Once again the ribbon is not Stampin' Up.

I have posted photos of both these wreaths on the Facebook group Stampin' Cafe and also on my Pinterest page and a number of people have asked for instructions.

I don't have any written instructions but these wreaths are fairly straight forward to make, they just take a little time.

I start by cutting my 12 x 12 DSP into 4" x 4" squares. You will need about 1 1/2 packs of DSP for a large wreath. Cut each 4" x 4" square into a circle approximately 3 1/2" in diameter using decorative edge scissors. 

Roll each circle into a cone and secure with a staple at the bottom. 

Attach to foam wreath using hot glue. I used a 350mm foam wreath for these wreaths but I have also made smaller ones.

Decorate with ribbon or other embellishments.

Thank you for visiting my blog and have fun making a wreath for yourself.


  1. Thanks so much for sharing the instructions. Love both of the wreaths. Looks like 1 1/2 packs will cover a 14" core (per online conversion). Darn, I only bought 1 pack of the DSP you used on the first wreath. Hmm, maybe I can extrapolate down to a smaller core for 1 pack of DSP and smaller circles. Will let you know if I figure it out. TFS!

  2. Michelle, you might get away with 1 pack of DSP if you place the cones a little further apart. I found that I used a different number of cones each time I made one. It is not really an exact science and also depends on how tight you roll the cones. Good luck.
