How to Make It:

  1. Cut and fold paper according to the pattern.
  2. Alternate papers as desired or use a one-color paper scheme. Connect enough pieces for wreath. As you work, gently coax the folded paper chain into a curve. The pieces will slide a little to accommodate the curve if it is not too severe.
  3. Add ribbon bow, sequins for holly berries, cutout holly leaves, small buttons, hanging thread, or other trims as desired. Note: To make cutting quicker, cut paper in multiples of the length needed; fold and then cut individual pieces from the folded length.
