12 Days of Christmas crafts

Oak leaf wreath

Since I suggested one alternate use for the Woodland gift tags I can’t seem to stop thinking of more!

Oak leaf wreath tutorial materials

You will need:

  • Woodland gift tags from Akimbo
  • ribbon
  • double-sided tape
  • scissors
  • cardboard (I used a cereal box)
  • pencil
  • compass

1. Mark out two concentric circles (I didn’t have a compass so I just traced around two different-sized plates).

2. Cut around circles until you are left with a donut shape.

3. Apply a strip of double-sided tape to one side of a tag.

4. Stick the first tag to the donut shape, just off-centre from the top.

5. Continue sticking on the leaves until one half of the wreath is complete, making sure they overlap so that no cardboard is visible.

6. Repeat process on the other half, overlapping the leaves at the top.

7. Snip the hole off the end of the last tags.

8. Finish off with a ribbon bow.

    I like the natural look but imagine how great it would look painted using two or three contrasting or complimentary paint colours.
    Really trad with bright red, white and green, or cool with robins egg blue, silver, and glittery white.
    You are a creative little bunny this month..
