Winter Wreath Tutorial


We had a huge snowstorm this weekend – it’s a winter wonderland here!

…so I added some winter to my front door too!

I saw this chalkboard printable at aka design blog and thought it would be perfect for a wreath idea! 

I especially love this phrase: “Winter is the Time for Home”

Supplies to Make a Winter Wreath

Twig wreath – Michaels

White Picture Frame – Dollar Store

 Chalkboard "Winter is The Time for Home" Printable

White Ribbon

Nylon Fishing Line

4 x  DIY Chunky Yarn Snowflakes

(I made these with toothpicks instead of bamboo skewers)


Secure DIY Chunky Yarn Snowflakes onto wreath with nylon fishing line.  I added mine at 3 off center points on the wreath.

Frame the chalkboard printable.  Thread white ribbon through the back clip of the frame and secure to the hook on the door.  Let the frame sit on the front of the wreath.

That’s it – You are done!
