You will only need two materials for this DIY winter wreath, paper and a basic foam wreath form. Find both at your local craft store! Pick out your cardstocks and then choose which size wreath form you’d like. Another great option for this wreath is text weight metallic paper. When you’re ready to start crafting, download the PDF file if you are cutting by hand or the SVG to use with a cutting machine. As you probably guessed, we used our Cricut cutting machine, and you can find a link in Shop this Project. There is no real tutorial for making this DIY winter wreath, it really is all about the vision that you would like to customize!
Our top tip for creating stunning wreaths is always to make sure that the botanicals are pointing in the same general direction as you move around the wreath. Whether that is clockwise or counter-clockwise doesn’t make a difference. If you really want to make your DIY winter wreath pop, use a ruler or straight edge to create vein lines in the leaves. Our template even indicates where you can add your score lines! For more seasonal home decor ideas, browse here. We’ve been especially loving faux fur projects this winter as a way to add cozy texture to your home.

What is the total size of this?
Please give me a rough size. (cm/Diameter)
It is about 35cm.
I noticed this cut file on Cricut design space. But it only shows cutting a single flower/leaf set. About how many do you need.
I suggest starting out with 15-20 of the smaller pieces and 25-30 of the larger pieces. It all depends on how big the wreath you’re making is and how full you would like the final look to be. I hope that helps!
u-u I would love to make this. I would pay money for it. But I dont want a membership. Is there no way to buy single patterns?
Hi Lea– we don’t sell our patterns individually. You can sign up for a monthly membership and then cancel before the month is up, or just after you have downloaded the projects you want to make.
Hi I would like to know what weight of paper/card was used ? I might be too late as my question is 4 after other comments. Thank you .
This was a few years ago and we made it with 12×12 cardstock. But if I were to remake this today I’d use text weight frosted paper– much easier to work with and give the leaves more shape!
how did you make the lines in the leafs?
The lines in the leaves are score lines. You can make them using your cutting machine and setting those lines to score, if cutting by hand you can use a scoring tool following the template guidelines.
Could you use floral or straight pins instead of hot glue? I’m not having lasting results with the petals sticking from season to season
We have not tried straight pins, however if you are not using a high temp hot glue gun we would recommend trying that as it has a stronger hold.
What is the best type and shape of wreath to use for the winter white paper wreath?
We prefer the green hard foam wreath forms (wrapped with white ribbon in this case), but a white version would work as well!
Any idea how many of each shape I would need?
Hi Mamie! We would start out with 15-20 of the smaller pieces and 25-30 of the larger pieces to achieve this look! It all depends on how big the wreath you’re making is and how full you would like the final look to be. We hope this helps!
