I don’t know what it is about Christmas but it is my most craftiest time of year. All I want to do is make shirts, gift tags, ornaments, wreaths and pretty much everything else. Today I am sharing one of my favorite Holiday DIY Crafts with you. I’m showing you how to make a Christmas Twig Wreath that will get you right in the holiday spirit!
This one is is not made for kids but you can certainly let the kids help! My favorite part of crafts is that it allows me to be creative without a screen. It’s can be downright therapeutic to work with your hands to create something beautiful!
This craft is fun because it uses twigs, felt paper and some more fun items. You can use it as decor around the house, and we all know you can never have enough holiday decor am I right?!
A super cute and fun wreath holiday craft that can be made into an adorable ornament for a Christmas tree.
- 1. Dry twigs
- 2. Felt fabric
- 3. Beads
- 4. Craft wire
- 1. Scissors
- 2. Craft glue
- 3. Cutting pliers
- 4. Pencil
Select red, green and yellow felt fabric for the flower.
Trace and cut out 10 lens shape petals from the red felt.
Trace and cut out leaf patterns from the green felt and a small round shape form yellow felt.
Trace 3 small strips with ball shaped sides on yellow felt and cut them out nicely. The size of the petals and the 3 yellow patterns should be relatively the same and size of the leaves can be the same or larger than the petals.
Step - 2:
Make a thin fold along the middle line of the petals and leaves and glue half way along the middle fold. This gives the petals and leaves a 3d look.
Step - 3:
Cut out a round base from nay colored felt as you want for the flower.
Step - 4:
Attach 5 petals around the outer edge of the base, keeping the open ends of the petals facing outwards.
Step - 5:
Now attach the rest of the petals on the base, inside the previous outer layer of petals; keeping the closed ends of the petals on the center of the base.
Step - 6:
Now attach the 3 yellow patterns on the centre, by placing them criss-cross wise. And then attach the small yellow circle on the centre to complete the flower.
Step - 7:
Cut out 4 or more small pieces of wire and twist them all together halfway through their length.
Step - 8:
Attach small beads on the edge of each of the wire’s open end.
Step - 9:
Determine the size of the wreath and cut out dry twigs accordingly.
Step - 10:
Attach the dry twigs together on 4 sides to form a square wreath pattern. You can attach more than 1 twig on each side.
Step - 11:
Grab the beaded wire and the felt wire and the square twig frame.
Step - 12:
Attach the felt flower on the twig frame. Also attach the felt leaves around the flower. Attach the beaded wire as well.
Step - 13:
Attach beads and more leaves to the frame if you want to. Attach a hanging mechanism on the back side to make a beautiful ornament.
