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

How to Make a Wreath out of Napkins!

Yes, I said a wreath made from napkins! We all love putting a new holiday wreath on our door, but they can get expensive to change every year for every month or holiday. Lucky for you, 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!

  1. 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

  2. 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?

  4. 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!!

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. That is the coolest wreath! I’ve never seen a napkin wreath before…I may just have to try this. Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. a quick question–do you know what brand cocktail napkins those are? I’d love to find them, but a quick search yielded different designs that the ones you used.
    thanks so much!

  12. Loved the idea of the wreath. I am going to try to do some for the inside of my doors. It was a great idea.loved it beautiful. Did a flower arrangement for a birth day party with napkins.

  13. I LOVE THIS! I think even I can make it…and have it coordinate with the Holiday Party Printable I just bought from you. Thank YOU!
