Hi guys! It’s Holly and Nat from My Sister’s Suitcase and we’re so happy to be sharing our Winter Woods Christmas Wreath with you today!
I love waking up to a view of a snow-covered lawn and trees, isn’t it breathtaking? This year, I wanted to make a wreath for my door that reminded me of the beauty of winter. I found this amazing snow-flocked garland at my local nursery, and I knew it would be perfect. Nothing says cozy to me like a plaid flannel, and I wanted to incorporate that texture into the wreath too. I found the cutest decorative tape at Michaels in this red and black plaid pattern, and I was set! Here are the materials I used to make my winter woods wreath:
- 24″ Box wreath frame
- Americana multi-surface paint in Black Tie
- foam paintbrush
- 6″ paper mache letters (J-O-Y)
- Recollections crafting tape
- Flocked snowy garland (from Eagle Rock Nursery)
- Red cotton cording (2 yards)
- hot glue
I started by painting my box wreath frame black. (It comes in a dark forest green color, but I wanted it to be black to match my door.) Then I covered my paper mache letters in the plaid tape, matching the pattern as well as I could. Once the letters were finished I might have let out a little happy scream because I loved them so much!
I placed the snowy garland around the edges of the wreath frame until I had them where I wanted them. Then I just attached the garland to the frame in periodic spots with hot glue. My finishing touch were the red berries. Instead of buying a sprig of faux berries, I wanted to make them out of a textile material, so I started experimenting with this red cording. I tied a few knots in the cording and came up with a shape that I liked.
I made all of the berries, then attached them to the wreath with hot glue. Finally, I strung the JOY letters together with a thin white cord and glued it to the sides of the wreath. I am pretty excited with how it turned out!
The wreath really sets the tone of my Christmas decor this year… here is my red, plaid and white mantel to match!
