Wrapping paper. Tissue paper. Curling ribbon. Gift tags. Whether you’re giving the most thoughtful gifts or receiving a plethora of beautiful treasures, everyone loves to be surrounded by beautifully wrapped gifts! And who doesn’t love to deck the halls? Consider merging both these loves in one fun decoration you can keep around for this festive season. See how you can easily turn mini favor boxes into mini holiday boxes and create a wreath to help spread the holiday spirit this December.
This project would look just as festive with white and blue gift boxes for Hanukkah, or even a rainbow of colors for any birthday celebration. This Christmas themed wreath was styled and photographed by Tara from Spot of Tea Designs. Take a trip over to her blog to see loads of creative and stress-free ideas for living a modern family life.
- Foam wreath
- White, Red and green favor boxes
- Decorative ribbons
- Decorative straight pins
- Hot Glue
Wrap the wreath with the mesh ribbon and use straight pins to hold in place. Tip: use decorative straight pins with pretty heads so they don’t have to be hidden!
Fold and form all the favor boxes. Wrap each box in decorative holiday ribbons to dress them up a bit! Consider different wrapping styles so they all look coordinated, yet different.
Use a combination of straight pins and hot glue to attach the boxes onto the wreath. Remember to spin and twist the positioning of the boxes so they are not all aligned.
Lastly, slowly unwind and wrap the roll of tulle around each box going all the way around the wreath. Twist and flip the roll as you unwind is to create creases and folds in the tulle for a more full look.
Once complete, add a ribbon hanger on the back of the foam using a combination of hot glue and straight pins. Your wreath is now complete!
Love the look? Consider swapping out of the colors of this wreath for a brighter color palette and create a fun decoration for a birthday party! Share your unique styles with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
