There is nothing that says Christmas better than the traditional red and green color mix. This gorgeous paper Christmas wreath is something you can make and decorate with year after year as it will always me a handcrafted treasure. The wreath includes holly leaves and berries, mistletoe leaves and berries as pine needles adding a pop of teal. I love this teal green color in the mix as it give the wreath a different texture and color twist as well as coordinating with my deep teal front door. Don’t you think it looks like I made it for my front door? For this project you can download the SVG cut file for your personal cutter, or you can use the PDF printable to hand cut. Both are ready for you at the end of the post, just click the download button. The paper I used for the wreath is the metallic text weight from paper-papers.com. You can use a card stock if you like, but the leaves will look softer with the text weight paper and you will be amazed at how strong it feels when you are done. The colors are Botanic green, Lime Satin, Emerald, Red Satin and Ice Silver. Click here to order the pack. You can follow my step-by-step tutorial on how I built this wreath from flat paper and a foam wreath form. I think the tip to making this wreath is the soft curling of all of the leaves and berries. It takes it from looking like paper to a whole new level. Another fun tip that I discovered when making the wreath is that it looks amazing at every step! If you want just a holly wreath, stop there. If you want a holly and mistletoe leaf wreath, it looks amazing too. With this wreath you have a winner at any step. Enjoy! ~ Lia

[…] 5. DIY Paper Christmas Wreath […]
I love this wreath, and would like to make it with your new frosted paper. Which colors would you recommend?
So glad to hear you are interested in our frosted paper! We would recommend the Conifer pack for the darker greens and the Stone Fruit pack for the reds 🙂
Best paper Christmas wreath I have ever seen!!! Thank you for sharing the tutorial!! Can’t wait to try it!
Thank you, that means so much to me!!
I am having trouble with the svg file. I download it and upload it on my Mac and then when I go to print it out, all the files are on two mats? All the images are black. Not sure what to do here?
Hi Patty! This sounds about right. The designs are black but you can change their color within Design Space to indicate the color paper you’d like to use. The lines on the leaves need to be changed to “score”, then “attached” to the leaf so they won’t go onto separate mats.
Can this be cut out on the silhouette cutting machine? Im having trouble converting the SVG to my silhouette program.
Our SVG files can be used on the Silhouette, but need to be converted to .Studio files. I’m not positive but think that can be done with the designer software edition for Silhouette?
You can also search the web to find free web based SVG to DFX converters. The free version of Silhouette Studio is able to read DFX files so there is no need to by the designer version of the software.

Where can I buy the metallic paper, (Botanic green, metallic text weight), that you use in the above Christmas Wreath project. I am using the store bought pre-cut materials, but ran out of the holly leaves half way through! Thanks, Beverly
Hi Beverly, there is a link in the post that directs you the exact paper on to paper-papers.com 🙂

I´d love to download and try to do this amazing wreath. Is it possible to pay for just one download? (without sign to an account)
Please, let me know if is possible.
Thanks a lot , Merry Christmas and congratulations on your work!
Thank you so much for your sweet words! You can buy the individual template for this on my Etsy shop 🙂 If you have a cutting machine, you should purchase the SVG file, and if you are cutting by hand then you should purchase the PDF. Here is the link to my shop!: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LiaGriffith?ref=hdr_shop_menu
I made this a couple weeks ago, time consuming but oh so worth it. It turned out just beautiful!
Thanks again for these great projects. On to the next one……
Worth it is right! You can use it for many years to come 😉
I love this project, Lia! And thank again for sharing your wonderful work and ideas. When you import your .svg file into Design Space, how large did you make your leaves?
I made mine 1-2″. Enjoy!
This is so beautiful!!
I’m going to try to make this with plain paper & then spray it silver- Watch this space……….
I live in Africa & have to make do with adaptations on crafty supplies 🙂
Love how creative my readers are!!! Have you seen my Facebook page? One of my readers made a necklace with the wreath pattern. https://www.facebook.com/liagriffith.hyl?fref=nf
Hi Lia! Thanks for sharing your fantastic ideas! I love them all. Sorry if i ask, but how did you do the veins on the leafs? Thanks again.
I used the scoring tool on my Cricut:)
Tried to subscribe 4 times something wrong with website.
Hmm.. it says that you are already a subscriber. Hopefully it worked!!
Hi Lia, what a wonderful wreath, … just amazing!!! I love the different green colors and the red berries! It looks so festive!
Thanks Diana! So happy you like it.
This wreath is beautiful Lia — I love the fact that the paper packs can be ordered from Paper-Papers.com for this design. I have already made several of your designs using my Cricut Explore (Make It Now projects) and now I know where to order my paper to get the same classy designer look that your designs have. I made the gift card holders and a small succulent plant to put in a small flower pot, and I was so happy with the results. Thanks, and I am glad I subscribed to your emails!
Wonderful!! I love to hear that my partnering with paper-papers makes your lives easier. 😉 It is my favorite paper for the Cricut machine. Cuts sooooo easily.
Très jolie couronne.
Чудесная омела! Волшебно,Лия!Спасибо!
So happy you like it!!
thanks for sharing your wonderful talents – Love your work

Great to hear!!
Wow, I love all your projects with the metallic papers. Wish they weren’t so expensive to buy. Living on Social Security really puts a damper on what projects I can do. But I can droll over all your gorgeous goodies.
Hi Linda, I am happy to hear that you are enjoying the projects. These projects works great with all kinds of paper, not just metallic. Thanks:)
