Create a winter-theme wreath with handmade snowflakes and materials from nature to adorn the Christmas entrance.

What You'll Need:

  • White or cream-colored heavy decorative paper
  • Scraps of iron-on stabilizer (we used Pellon brand Peltex #72 double-sided fusible ultrafirm stabilizer)

  • Iridescent glitter
  • 5-mm crystal sequins
  • Scissors
  • Awl
  • Fine wire
  • Fresh evergreen wreath
  • Pinecones

How to Make It:

  1. Trace the pattern using tracing paper or a copier. Sandwich the stabilizer between the wrong sides of the paper pieces; fuse it to the paper. Place the pattern on the paper and draw around the pattern lightly with a pencil. Cut out shapes. Add additional detail to the shapes by making designs with crafts glue, sprinkling on iridescent glitter and adding sequins.
  2. When the glue is dry, make a hole through the edge of each snowflake by poking it with an awl or the sharp point of a scissors.
  3. Add a wire to each snowflake; wire onto the wreath. Add pinecones and other embellishments as desired. Attach wire for hanging.
