Sometimes nothing can beat classic white seasonal home decor for wintertime. Of course, white can also be a great home decor accent any time of the year. Last year we created a frosty felt wreath that we kept up in the studio all winter long. This year we are swapping the paper for cardstock to make this equally gorgeous DIY winter wreath. You can easily customize this wreath with any color scheme you would like, but to capture the snowy offerings of the colder months, we stuck with this neutral color palette. To add a bit more interest, we used various shades of white and cream for depth.
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.
