All Is Calm Winter Wreath

By: Laurie Cinotto for Fiskars

Looking for some versatile wreath ideas for winter?  Look no further than the All Is Calm Winter Wreath.  Made with lovely stars and winter birds, this seasonal winter door wreath is a great way to welcome guests into your home.  Embellished with sentiments of the season, this wreath is great to have up all winter long, and can easily be displayed both indoors and out.

Materials:

  • Fuse Creativity System® Starter Set
  • Kaleidoscope Border Punch
  • Season’s Greetings Simple Stick™ Repositionable Rubber Stamps (8" x 8")
  • Artificial wreath
  • An assortment of solid, pattered, and glittered cardstock
  • Paper glue
  • Adhesive rhinestones
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Ink pad
  • Embossing power
  • Heat gun

 

Instructions:

  1. Start by paying a visit to your favorite craft store to select your wreath. There are many styles and sizes available. I picked this light, airy pine one with tiny pinecones already attached. You could use a fresh wreath too, but in time, the moisture from the wreath could cause your paper trimmings to curl. 
     
  2. Create a ribbon for your wreath by cutting several long strips of craft or butcher paper measuring a total of six to eight feet. Punch the edges of the paper strips with a border punch.

  3. Dab the punched edges of the strips with ink, and dust with gold embossing powder. Heat with a heat gun to set the powder.

  4. Loosely wrap the ribbons around your wreath. Attach the ends to the wreath using a hot glue gun.

  5. Punch fifteen plus stars from assorted cardstock and glittered papers. 
     
  6. Stamp several holiday sentiments using gold ink on a dark cardstock. Cut out the sentiment and trim the tail of the strip with a chevron.  Attach the strips with glue to several of your stars.
