Gift Box Wreath Tutorial

167K Views
I love scrapbook paper. Even though my scrapbooking days are over, I can't help but visit the paper aisle at my craft store and wish I had some project to do with it. So I came up with a Gift Box Wreath that is fairly simple and uses your scrapbook paper (even just the leftovers, if you want). You can also use wrapping paper.
Time: 45 Minutes Cost: $10.00 Difficulty: Easy

You will need:
A wreath form (I used a wire one)
Tape
Glue gun
Ribbon, small (assorted colors, if you want)
Ribbon, large (for covering the wire form)
Bow or other embellishments
Mini boxes, about 12 (you can use whatever you already have, make ones out of Christmas cards or whatever). I bought mine. I used small jewelry boxes--like the ones above.

Simply wrap each box in the scrapbook paper like you would a gift. Use coordinating paper and it will look so cute! Decorate each box with ribbon.

Wrap your form in large ribbon if you would like. Mine was wire so I needed ot cover it. Decide where you want the gifts to be on your wreath form.

Use your glue gun to simply attach each gift box on the wreath form.

Got a question about this project?

  • Jane Robertson

    Love the wreath. Just do not hang it on a door that gets sun for most of the day. I live in the south, and the sun will melt the glue.

      Melt the glue AND fade the paper (or fabric, as in one suggestion). My door gets so much sun nothing lasts very long.

    for outside packages, i use plastic dollar store tables cloths. they come in a variety of colors and you can wrap A lot of packages with one cloth.

    My 9 yr old granddaughter and I made this but used a picture frame we got for $1 from Goodwill. We got the Santa from the Dollar store ($1), the gift boxes from WalMart for $2.49 for 4, the ribbon from JoAnne's for $4.00 (had some left).

    I'm not a real crafty person, I'm more of a buyer. I really love these simple projects. It makes me feel as though I've accomplished something on my own. Debbie
