Napkin Wreath – DIY Holiday Craft

Make a Wreath this holiday with leftover party supplies! Easy DIY Craft by Amy at

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!

    Angie Corbett Pretty Zebra Wreath for Fall :)

  2. Only concern I have would be of the dampness on the outside of a door, thinking that maybe spraying it with a clear sealant after made would help hold the shape of the paper

  3. Ann Sheats Wooten says:

    I love this. It is so pretty.

  4. Susan Linn says:

    What a clever idea.

  5. Cute napkin wreath!

  6. I wonder how it would look if you used the pre-cut fat quarters used for quilting?

  7. Becky Hanna Graham says:

    That is a really neat idea, very elegant look.

  8. Love it!

  9. I think it is clever and would have never thought napkins!!!

  10. I hate crafts but I think this one will be so fun!!! How did you get the glitter to stay on the napkins? Or did you just put the glitter on the ribbon?

  11. Oh my! I love this sooo much! Going to have to try!! Thanks for such a great idea!

  12. Thanks for the idea. I made one for my new front door! I posted a link here on my blog.

  13. I hope you don’t mind…I linked up your post to my blog!! You inspired me to create a version of this wreath for my daughters birthday!!

  14. Love this! Great idea to use napkins – there are so many pretty ones to choose from.

  15. That’s incredible! Thanks for the tip!

    I do this with straw wreaths from the craft store. I purchase festive holiday fabric, cut squares about 4×4 with pinking sheers. I put a hot glue in a dot, take a pencil in the center of the square and push it into the straw.

  17. Pam Hollie says:

    What size grapevine wreath did you use?

  18. I have a bunch of left over St. Patrick’s Day fabric. I wonder if I cut it into squares the size of cocktail napkins it will look the same? Any thoughts?

  19. I didn’t thought that its so easy to made.Great idea.Looks very pretty.Its having fun to make such nice wreath with leftover paper napkins.Again thanks.

  20. What a great idea! I’m going to look for some spring themed napkins and get one made up for then to hang on my front door, which is safe, as it would be protected by the outer glass door. Thanks for sharing!

  21. I’m making one for Valentine’s Day

  22. Love this, who knew something so simple, could be so beautiful!!!

  23. I think your wreath looks amazing! I am gonna have to make one! I think we might be able to get away with hanging it outside in Arizona. Thanks for sharing your awesome idea!
