Paper Christmas wreath is the mostsimple option. If you want to show your individuality and get an unusual decoration for your home, you will have to master more complex techniques. We will try to help you with this and tell you how to create a unique decorative element for the interior. For the work you will need a variety of materials that you hardly ever used for decorating crafts. Intrigued? Then let's get started!

Note! to make a wreath, you need to make a round frame for it. It is an essential element when creating any wreath.


The base for the Christmas wreath can be made of cardboard and paper

Creating such a framework is quite simple: circle on a cardboard two plates with different diameters, and then carefully cut. Now add the desired volume to the circle. To do this, you need to find old newspapers at home, cut them into equal parts (if you use a written children's book, divide it into sheets), roll them up into thick tubes and stick them to the top of the base, starting from the inside. Repeat the process until the surface of the circle is completely covered by paper tubes.

Advice! To make the wreath look neat, wrap it with a wide ribbon and secure the result with a hot gun. Now that the base is ready, you can begin decorating.

Even socks can make a multi-colored Christmas wreath.

  1. Multicolored napkins. To work you need a few packs of this material. Take a napkin, fold it in half twice, and then fix it in the center with a stapler (brackets should be arranged in the form of a cross). Next, cut a circle of the desired diameter. It all depends on the size of your base: the circle should completely close it. Do the same with other wipes. As soon as you have a lot of paper circles at your disposal, start to form “snow” balls from them. Gently lift up the layers of the napkin, crushing them to the middle, and then with your hands give them the shape of a flower. Using a hot gun, glue the received balls to the base, tightly placing them next to each other. As a result, you get a wreath that will look light and airy, like snow. Decorate it with a shiny ribbon and hang it on the door.
  2. Pasta. Who said that you can not make a beautiful crafts out of food? Surprise your loved ones with originality by making a wreath of pasta. Besides, even a child can make it. All you need is a cardboard frame, several varieties of vermicelli, glue and a can of paint. Smear the frame with glue and attach to it pasta of different shapes. There should be no empty seats, therefore the distance between the elements should be minimal. As soon as the last detail is fixed, cover the wreath with paint of the chosen color and add decorative bells to the composition. This product looks very unusual.
  3. Socks. This version of the performance exactly like the representatives of the strong half of humanity. Naturally, you will need a lot of socks. You can alternately wrap them on a cardboard base or roll them into small tubes, and then attach them to the frame. You can decorate this craft with a bright bow or a festive ribbon. Use this custom wreath as a complement to the main gift. We are sure that such an amusing gift will not leave any man indifferent.
  4. Wine corks. If you like vintage items, then a festive wreath of wine corks is what you need. Previously you need to prepare aluminum wire, bright beads and a dozen corks. Form two circles from a wire - big and small. Attach the cork to two circles at a time. That is, the upper part is strung on a large circle, and the lower - on a small one. To make it look even better, alternate corks with beautiful beads. The resulting wreath can be decorated with a pine branch or golden bells.
  5. Cones. In addition to the excellent view, the wreath will have a wonderful fragrance that spreads throughout the apartment. On the one hand, in this case it is not at all necessary to use a cardboard base: the bumps are sufficient with glue and add some bright elements. But, on the other hand, the skeleton will greatly simplify the task, and the wreath will hold much better. To begin with, paint the base in the desired color, wait until it is completely dry, and only then proceed to the design. We recommend preparing cones of different sizes. First glue the big buds to the base, and then fill the empty space with small ones. Such a wreath looks very festive even without additional tinsel, but you can paint it in any color or add a few decorative elements.


Christmas wreaths of cones are very popular and truly wintertime.
