Are you looking for a last-minute way to decorate a wreath? With just a couple sheets of patterned paper, you can quickly and easily transform a plain wreath into something whimsical, fun, and unique with this tutorial I did for PinkWhen a few weeks ago.
I’ve been in a medallion mood lately. I love how simple they are to create and the texture they give to whatever you put them next to. So I thought it would be a fun pairing to put medallions in a pine wreath. I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, and it’s time to get the house decorated for Christmas!
Medallion Christmas Wreath Supplies
- Pine wreath (I found mine at Target for $2 at the end of last season)
- 3 pieces of 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper
- 1/2″ Circle punch
- Hot glue gun
- 1/2″ Ribbon
- 1-1/2″ Ribbon
- Cut your scrapbook paper into strips. For the larger medallions, cut the strips 12″ x 1.5″ and for the smaller medallions, the strips are 12″ x 1″.
- Score and accordion fold your strips every 1/2″ (see below).
- Glue the ends of the strip together to create a circle. Push the top edges of the circle in towards the center and the bottom edges outward until the circle flattens out.
- Punch two circles from a coordinating paper using the 1/2″ Circle punch, and glue them to the front and back of your medallion.
- Repeat as many times as you want to cover your wreath. Hot glue the medallions to the wreath.
- Tie ribbon bows between the medallions as desired.
- Finish with a large bow at the bottom, and hang it up!
