Today I’m sharing how to make a mini wreath and how it changed my snowy scene to a festive Christmas card.  I love creating outdoor scenes with lots of falling snow and touches of red to create more interest  For this card I used the Winter Lamp Post, Park Bench, Greenery #2, Evergreen Trees, Cardinals, Deckle Hills, Tiny Flower Buds and Splatter Background.

See how to make a mini wreath embellishment for holiday cards.

Create the Snowy Scene

  • Cut all the scene elements to fit on an A2 sized card base.  Note: You can lots of projects here using the Park Bench and Lamp Post.
  • Use white pigment ink to stamp all the elements with the Splatter Background, apply white embossing powder and heat.
  • Assemble all the die cut elements and attach them to the card base using strips of mounting tape and double stick tape.
  • Apply white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the park bench and the top sections of the lamp post to create the appearance of piled up snow.

Make the Wreath

  • Cut a few greenery branches and punch out or hand cut a 1/2″ circle.
  • Cut the individual sections off the greenery branches.
  • Use you snips to cut the center out of the punched circle and attach the two ends back together using glossy accents.

Mini Wreath 1

  • Begin by attaching the tiny branches all the way around the wreath ring using glossy accents.

Mini Wreath 2

  • Continue until you have covered the whole wreath base.
  • Create the second layer by repeating the steps of adding branches and offset them slightly to fill in the wreath.  I’m sorry that I failed to take a picture of this step.

Mini Wreath 3

  • Cut some tiny red flowers and form them using a molding pad and tiny tipped stylus.
  • Attach the tiny flowers to the wreath using glossy accents.  Note:  I use my reverse tweezers to pick up small pieces and to place them.

Mini Wreath 5

  • Fill in the wreath with several flowers.  Use as mini or as few as you would like.

Mini Wreath 4

Finish the Scene

  • Attach the wreath to the lamp post using glossy accents.
  • Attach a couple evergreen branches and flowers to the park bench and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply red stickles to the flowers to add a touch of sparkle.
