Making your own wreath for Christmas can be a great opportunity for personal expression. You may like bushier botanical wreaths, like our magnolia leaf wreath. Or you may love a pretty floral pop of color, like our poinsettia wreath. If you want to go for simplicity, our laurel leaf wreath is a beautiful festive accent for the holidays, especially as indoor decor. You won’t need much to make these wreaths, just some crepe paper and an embroidery hoop, plus glitter cardstock if you want to add the houses in the center.

We used the mid-tone green, called Pistachio, from our Christmas pack of heavy crepe paper to make the laurel leaves. Download the PDF template for the leaves below, or the SVG file if you have a cutting machine that cuts crepe paper. Make sure that you are cutting the leaves with the grain of the crepe. Feel free to check out our guide, Getting Started with Crepe Paper, to learn more about working with our favorite paper material. Once you cut out your leaves, you can begin attaching them to an embroidery hoop. You can also add in some gold leaves using Gold Satin. Members can download our photo tutorial below!
To make our laurel leaf wreath stand out, we added a gold house from our 3D Christmas village. This is totally optional, but it is a fun little Christmas accent! We love this design because it is a great option for a smaller wreath. You can style it on your front door, or you can create a holiday display in your living room like we did. Pick out some pretty ribbon and hang them from the ceiling for unique wall art!
For more small wreath designs, be sure to to take a look at our boxwood and pine mini wreaths. Browse all of our Christmas projects for more inspiration, or head over to our membership page to start crafting with us. Happy Holidays! ~ Lia and the Team
