I am always on the hunt for a cute holiday wreath! This year I decided - why not make my own with the adorable Christmas Magic collection! I have always loved bright, happy colors in my holiday decor, so this year it was a no-brainer to create a handmade wreath that I can customize with my favorite colors! 
So this wreath is made up of a few of my favorite pattern papers from the collection and then a few coordinating Petite Print papers. I followed this tutorial I found on Pinterest to make the wreath:
CURLY PAPER WREATH TUTORIAL. It came together in just over an hour! It looks like it takes longer - but once you start curling the paper strips and then pinning them to the wreath form - it really does go by quickly. I used a 12 inch round foam wreath form as my base. The paper strips measure 1/2 inch x 12 inches and so you can get quite a few strips from one piece of paper. Then came the fun part- DECORATING!!

I used several different die cuts from the Odds and Ends - Mr. and Mrs. Santa are seen peeking out from behind the "Merry Christmas" sentiment that is found in the Chit Chat die cuts. I layered the pieces with some foam tape and then glued them to the wreath. I used a couple of Holly and Pine Shape Sprinkles for some dimension.
 I knew when I saw these cute banners in the Odds and Ends I needed to use it on a project. I added a couple of Peppermint Twist Shape Sprinkles to the cupcake and the present. I also added a couple of Mini Clothespins to the ends of the banner.
  I thought I needed another little character to the wreath so I added the cute elf riding a reindeer die cut just above the banner. He is so cute!!
To finish decorating the wreath I found a few of the Ornament die cuts from the Odds and Ends and glued a few of them all around the wreath. I did add a few of the Tiny Heart Shape Sprinkles to the ornaments for a little pizazz!
I seriously love how this wreath turned out. This was my first time making a wreath like this and I can see myself making many more with other Doodlebug collections! Thanks a bunch for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to create a fun wreath like this for your homes this holiday season! Happy Crafting!

  1. Love the look and colors. How did you do the curls and how long did you cut the strips of paper. I'm guessing you ran the strips over the edge of a pair of scissors. Thanks for sharing this. I think you could use this style for many other holidays - it would be really cute for Easter, because the curls look like Easter grass. :)

    1. Okay, I see they were 12" X 1/2". One question answered.

  2. Hi Ronda!
    I used a bone folder to curl the paper strips but scissors would also work too! ��

  3. Tya this is absolutely fabulous and fun!

  4. Love it! I can't wait to make one for display at The Paper Forest!

  5. Adorable and colorful wreath!
    Have a great day!
