Christmas shaker wreath

Chapter: Projects   Series: Bookmarks & Cards

Making wreaths are my favourite things to do in Christmas. This wreath was inspired by a wreath-shaped tin by Lindt which I’d picked up in a supermarket recently.

Inspired by a wreath-shaped chocolate tin.

I’ve used a grey, beige and pink colour palette for the wreath. The stamped images were from the stamp set Chistmas Florals which I’ve used countless times, almost every single year.

HOW-TO STEPS

  1. Cut out 2 circle frames from cardstock, one for the outer border and the other for the inner border of the wreath.
  2. Cut out a donut on cardstock and acetate. These will be the backing behind the wreath and the window shield respectively.
  3. Ink up the frames and doughnut cardstock with ink. I used a combination of gold, silver and two pale greens.
  4. Stamp and die cut the images. I always stamp extra. Leave them aside for now.
  5. Paste the frames (from step 1) onto the acetate doughnut. Turn over and paste foam tape behind and around the frame. I used a 0.2 cm thick foam tape which is slightly thicker than the regular 0.1 cm ones.
  6. Dust the inner sides of the foam tape with the powder tool to remove tact (so that some of the shaker contents don’t get stuck to the foam tape).
  7. Fill the spaces with sequins, confetti and strains of gold thread.
  8. Remove the release film from the foam tape and adhere the doughnut cardstock piece (from step 2) over the shaker contents.
  9. Adhere the die cut images, sequins and strains of gold thread around the wreath. Some of the florals were adhered with foam tape.
  10. For the word banner, cut a circle frame and write the words with a ball point, then trim the ends. Adhere the banner across the middle of the wreath. Adhere also sequins at the four corners.
  11. Adhere thread behind the wreath so that it can be hung.
