This wreath is nice and compact to be hung off a doorknob or can be tacked to the center of a child’s room door. Hang up on a tree for a rustic “crafty” look!

We are going to make a simple wreath out of tissue paper and card paper, using the buttons as ornaments to decorate it. Use coordinating colors to make your wreath. You don’t have to make the wreath exclusively for the holidays. Instead, you can adapt it based on different colors that are relative to various seasons! Test out different combinations of colors and materials to see which work best.

P1015822

Let’s start with making the wreath.

P1015823

Fold the sheet of Double Color Card sheet in half.

P1015824

Use scissors to cut a small semi-circle out of the center of the folded sheet. Cut off the corners of the folded sheet and round out the edges to form a larger semi-circle.

P1015825

Now, unfold the wreath.

P1015879

Punch a hole into the top of the wreath. Cut a length of decorative ribbon and thread through the hole. Tie a knot at one end.

P1015881

To add texture to your wreath, you will need to use our Tissue Circles, or find scraps of green tissue paper in your scrap paper box.

P1015882

Take a scrap of green tissue paper and scrunch it in the center. Pull out the surrounding paper, much like you would when stuffing tissue paper into a gift bag.

P1015883

Dab a bit of glue onto the wreath and press the scrunched tissue paper on top.

P1015885

Add more tissue paper scraps all the way around the wreath.

P1015889

Glue a Bright Button onto the center of each tissue paper section. Enjoy a beautiful but easy-to-make decoration for this holiday season!
