Christmas Wreath and Christmas Crafting Ideas

Christmas and the holidays are coming, so you know what that means… it’s time to start thinking about Christmas wreath and Christmas crafting ideas!

This might be the BEST times of year for crafting and wreath making. We get the warm fuzzies just thinking about it! The sparkling snow, the twinkling lights, the bright reds, greens, and golds… Not to mention all the cute characters Christmas inspires! There are just so many ideas that can be incorporated into your Christmas and holiday decorating. So many, in fact, that it can be hard to know where to begin!

Fortunately, at Unique in the Creek, we are NEVER short on Christmas wreath and Christmas crafting ideas, and we’re always willing to share our wealth of knowledge! Plus, our wreath making system makes the Christmas wreath making process so easy and fun. You’re going to love that DIY feeling!

So, pour yourself a cup of hot cocoa, get cozy, and read on for some Christmas wreath and Christmas crafting ideas!

Start Your Christmas Wreath with UITC™ Wreath Boards

Christmas wreath making and Christmas crafting all starts on our UITC™ Wreath Making Boards. Our wreath boards are the base for all your DIY wreath creations. Best of all, they make the whole Christmas wreath and Christmas crafting process a breeze!

These boards are where the holiday magic really starts! All of our boards are made from 100% recycled plastic. They’re also weather-resistant, made to withstand all kinds of outdoor conditions. This is very important in the cold and snowy late fall and winter months! You can even re-use our boards if you’d prefer to make another design. They are durable and constructed to last!

As you can see, we have many different wreath boards to inspire many different designs. For instance, you could choose the Horse Board to create a festive Christmas horse wreath, the Large Board to create a beautiful poinsettia wreath, or the Triangle Board to make a Christmas tree wreath. The only limit to what you can do with our boards is your imagination!

We recommend using cable ties (zip ties) with all of our DIY wreath boards to attach your materials. You really can use any material you wish as long as you can zip a cable tie around it. Any material is fair game! This helps you use far fewer materials so that the Christmas wreath making process is much more cost effective and environmentally friendly.

Once you’ve preloaded your board, you’re ready to go! From here, you’ll use materials and accessories to make your Christmas wreath your own. Our online shop has an abundance of mesh, a variety of styles and patterns of ribbon, and many other fun accessories and supplies you can use to bring your Christmas wreath and Christmas crafting ideas to life.

Add “Character” To Your Christmas Wreath

Okay, let’s talk about adding a character centre to your Christmas wreath and Christmas crafting projects! One of our favourites is a wreath that doubles as a Christmas or holiday character, such as Santa Claus, a snowman, or Rudolph. These are some of our most popular Christmas wreath designs, and it’s not hard to see why… they are just so cute and cheerful!

To make a wreath like these, you’ll need the Character Wreath Board. This board is designed to have an image insert affixed to its centre, whether it be a picture of scenery, a greeting, or in this case, a character’s face!

At Unique in the Creek, we offer a wide selection of image inserts that you can affix to the centre of your Character Board. No matter what character or theme you choose for your Christmas wreath, we probably have an insert for it! Our inserts come in three types to best suit your needs: Vinyl (the most popular), Paper, and Digital.

Our vinyl inserts are so easy to use — just peel and stick!

Each vinyl insert is entirely laminated so it is protected from scratching, UV rays, and harsh weather conditions. Your image will stay as vibrant as the day you purchased it!

Once you have your insert affixed to the board, add your zip ties via the board’s holes, and then you can begin to attach your materials. By far the most popular material for many wreaths is deco mesh, it gives a beautiful “fullness” to your Christmas wreath and comes in so many colours and patterns!

In addition to or instead of deco mesh, you could also add in other materials, such as tulle, felt, and of course, ribbon!

And don’t forget to finish off your Character Board wreath with some accessories and accents! After all, every snowman needs a little hat, and every reindeer needs a pair of antlers. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in our online store, your local craft and dollar stores are great places to look for these items!

Make a Christmas Tree or Angel Wreath

Not all Christmas wreaths have to be round! Our Christmas Tree and Angel Wreath designs both use our Triangle Board, and are definitely some of our most well-loved Christmas designs!

Making a Christmas Tree Wreath or Angel Wreath on the Triangle Board follows a similar process to making a wreath on any other of our boards – just pre-load the board with zip ties, and attach your chosen materials and accessories.

If you’re making a Christmas Tree wreath, you can “decorate” it as you would a normal Christmas tree, but on a smaller scale. Little ornaments from your local dollar store make a festive addition to this wreath design, as does ribbon. You could even attach a greeting via a wreath sign!

When it comes to making an angel wreath, don’t forget to add the head! Anything small and round could do for the head — e.g. styrafoam ball, ping pong ball, etc. — so long as you can dress it up!
