How to make your own Christmas paper wreaths easily

What you need:

  • drag
  • glue
  • colored paper (yellow and red)
  • decorative beads or a button
  • red thread

Step-by-step instructions


Start by folding the paper (yellow) in half.

Step 1

Once folded in half, make another fold at the top (along the length).

Step 2

Make sure the folds are nice and crisp.

Step 3

Hold the folded paper and start making slits with scissors, cutting strips at the same time until you reach the fold you made.

Step 4

Open the paper and apply glue to the top fold (one side only).

Step 5

Now gently bring the ends together, aligning the paper tube with the folds and glue them together.

Apply light pressure so it stays in place.

Step 6

Cut one or two strips (now paper rings) from one end of your tube.

Step 7

Apply glue to the unmarked part.

Step 8

Stretch the paper roll and tape it together to form a flower-shaped circle.

Step 9


Cut out a red square.

Step 10

Fold it diagonally in half.

Step 11

Fold it again.

Step 12

Now make an incision almost to the middle of the square.

Make sure not to go all the way – we don’t want to cut off the triangles.

Step 13

Apply glue to the middle of the square and bend the ends of a triangle toward the center.

Step 14

Repeat the process on the opposite triangle.

Now, carefully cut out a triangle.

Step 15

We want to cut a smaller triangle from the larger triangle.

Slit along the outside lines of the triangle toward the center.

Step 16

After cutting the triangle, we have to cut a small triangle from both ribbons.

Step 17

Apply glue and place a bead neatly in the center of the bow.

You can also use a button or anything similar.

Step 18

Cut a piece of red yarn, form a circle and glue it to the back of the bow.

Step 19

Glue the bow onto the yellow wreath.

Step 20
