DIY Paper Holly Wreath2
Hi everyone it’s Stacey and this week I’ve been Christmas crafting. I’ve designed a pretty holly wreath, perfect for hanging indoors for the festive season.
To make your own you’ll need the following materials:
Green florist mossing twine
Ribbon of your choice
Begin by wrapping your wire ring with the twine.
I wrapped my ring in sections, knotting the ends to the ring and the next piece of twine. I chose to use green twine so that it blended in with the leaves.
To make my holly I created an svg file to cut on my machine.
Using a hot glue gun you’ll need to stick all the prickly holly leaves to the wire ring. I bunched four leaves together; two of each colour and I arranged by what was pleasing to the eye.
Before you cover the whole ring with holly, make sure you attach your ribbon for hanging. Make a loop with the ribbon and glue it on to the twine and cover the front over with leaves.
Once all the holly is all attached in little groups you can then fill in any spaces with single leaves that look a little bare.
Using my Cricut machine I cut two sizes of berries using the different shades of red card. You may choose to use a circle craft punch if you have one. Glue your berries onto you holly mixing the two shades of card together. I chose to use Mod Podge to glue my berries on to the wreath as they can be a bit fiddly and we don’t want burnt fingers now do we.
If your using Mod Podge or another craft glue I recommend leaving your wreath to dry for little while once you’ve stuck on the berries.
“Ta Da!” you have a beautiful Christmas holy wreath.
Happy Christmas crafting!
