Santa Wreath Ornaments

Sometimes ideas will just jump into my head. The inspiration for this came from Miss Mustard Seed's music wreath ornament. But I kept getting the vision of brown paper and Santa in my head. So I headed over to The Graphics Fairy and found this. Which became:

I resized the image and pasted it into a Word document….but only because my photo editor went crazy. ….still haven’t figured THAT out, but I digress.

I cut out a couple of circles from an Italian ice box.

(I will probably use the Cricut if I make many of these, but for now I just used scissors.)

Then I tore one of the Santa images from the page. I wanted the torn edge, but you could also cut it with scissors. I sprayed the back of the image with spray adhesive and pressed it onto one of the circles.

Then I put a thin line of plain white glue around the edge and glittered it. WARNING: German glass glitter is addictive!!!!

Then I got busy making cones from brown paper and completely forgot to take any pictures….UNTIL I was completely finished. So this is what I did:

  • Made about 16 small paper cones.
  • Glittered them.
  • Using the other circle, made a small paper wreath.
  • Glued the Santa circle into the center of the wreath.

and voila:

Now when the glue is completely dried, I will flip it over and glue on a ribbon hanger.

Simple…and so cute.

And, if it is not too late, I am going over to brag over at:


Have a wonderfully creative day!!!
