Merry Christmas Eve!! Today we will be heading down to spend the holidays with Alex’s family and I can’t wait. Good food, wine and a present swap. I know I promised this tutorial on how to make an easy snowflake wreath a while back when I first posted about our holiday mantel for this season, and here it is finally.
To get it started, I found these foam snowflakes at Joann’s. My initial plan was to use felt and cut out snowflakes, but then I spotted these snowflake packs at 50% off I knew I could save a lot of time and labor by using them. Half the pack is glittered and the other half is plain white. Being that I wanted all glittered snowflakes, I bought 2 packs.
Next I grabbed a wire wreath frame and a 12×12 piece of paper. I then traced a large circle onto the paper to act as my wreath frame. With the foam being so light I did not want to use a real wreath frame, but I created a paper one to make sure I kept my snowflake in a perfect circle shape.
Once traced onto the paper, cut it out.
Now you have the perfect circle for the wreath base.
Using my glue gun, I started gluing on the snowflakes.
Keep adding on snowflakes as you work around the wreath. To make them look more random, I moved around as I added them and made sure they did not all overlap in the same way.
And after about 25 snowflakes, we have a finished snowflake wreath!
Once all the snowflakes are glued down and it has cooled, it is time to add ribbon. I found this shiny green ribbon in my wrapping tote and thought it would work great.
I glued the ribbon down on the back in the wreath and created a fun little bow to the front. To hang it above our fireplace I simply used a tack through the middle of the ribbon bow.
And there you have it. A super simple holiday wreath. I think it looks great in our dining room on the bold navy walls, but you could also hang it on your door for some festive holiday decor.
