I have always wanted to make snow flocked Christmas wreath. Finally after making our pine cone wreath, magnolia wreath, candy cane wreath, and fresh wreath in the past few years, it’s time to make some snow flocked wreaths for our Christmas decorations.

We are also using the wreaths differently! Instead of using them on our doors, we are using them as Christmas kitchen cabinet wreaths this time. So exciting!

These wreaths are made with natural and recycled materials, so you can easily recycle / compost them after the holidays and no storage is needed! They are also fun Christmas crafts ideas to make with kids and family!

Materials and tools to make snow flocked Christmas wreath

Cardboard, a box cutter or craft knife, hot glue gun and glue sticks (my fav brand), a white soap bar if you want to add snow flocking.

Step 1: cut cardboard rings

draw circles on cardboard

Draw two concentric circles on the cardboard.

I used an 12″ bowl for the outer circle, and an 8″ lid for the inner circle. You don’t have to use these dimensions, the key is that the cardboard section should be about 2″ wide.

Cut out the cardboard ring shape. You can make sections of the ring and glue them together if your cardboard piece is not big enough.

Step 2: glue conifer clippings to cardboard wreath

Use hot glue to glue the conifer clippings along the cardboard ring. Make sure that they overlap so no cardboard is showing through the greens or along the edges.

 Since our cabinet wreaths are only about 10” in diameter, this step is really easy and only took 5 minutes to complete each wreath.

You can also glue some red berries to the wreath. Fresh Cypress clippings and holly or other red berries can look nice for 2-3 weeks, which means you can make these wreaths in early December or at least a week ahead, and enjoy them through Christmas! 

Step 3: add snow flocking to Christmas wreaths
