I have an easy homemade wreath craft idea for you!
First of all, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I enjoyed time with my family in Oklahoma and some yummy home cooking! Besides stuffing myself with turkey, I also had time to relax and make a Christmas wreath for my mom.
This was the easiest wreath I’ve ever made! I used cocktail napkins and an old grapevine wreath to create simple holiday decor.
What you need:
- grapevine wreath
- 20-25 paper cocktail napkins (I used these napkins- I found them at my grocery store around $4 per pack of 20.)
- glue stick
- embellishments of your choice (I used jingle bells, ribbon and glitter)
I twisted the middle of a napkin and stuffed it into the grapevine wreath. No glue needed! This way you can easily change the wreath at anytime.
It takes about 15 minutes to stuff the wreath. After you add a lot of napkins, the wreath looks really good. To hide the back of the napkins which was white, I adjusted one so the white was not showing, then used a glue stick to hold it in place by sticking the napkins to each other.
For this wreath, I added a string of jingle bells, a pretty ribbon and sprinkled it all with glitter.
Of course this won’t work outside, but my mom has a screened-in front porch, so the wreath looked great on her front door! I wonder if anyone will notice it’s made with napkins? I thought it turned out really pretty!
So now you have something fun and easy to do with leftover paper napkins! What do you think??
