My theme for Christmas this year is going to be “presents”, and this Christmas wreath made from double sided wrapping paper fits the theme perfectly! I wish I could take credit for the design, but I can’t. I found it at ribbonsandglue and just knew I had to make one.
Here’s how I made my wrapping paper wreath:
Double sided wrapping paper (3 – 4 rolls, or however many designs you want)
Double stick tape
Cardboard (for a 12” circle)
Cut the wrapping paper into 6” wide strips.
From the strips of wrapping paper, you’ll need to cut 16 – 6” X 6” pieces and 16 – 4” X 6” pieces. Depending upon how tight you make the cone bottoms, you may need more. I made my bottoms open about a 1/2” rather than pointed.
Make cones from each piece. I added a piece of double stick tape on a corner, rolled it into a cone, removed the backing and sealed it. You can also use a hot glue gun, but I found this to be a lot easier.
Cut a 12” cardboard circle. I used one of the cake boards I had left from making my mini cupcake stand project. Draw a 6” circle in the center. Arrange the 6” cones along the marked line and secure it to the cardboard with double stick tape or hot glue.
Arrange and then tape or glue the 4” cones in between the 6” cones.
Hot glue a variety of Christmas bulbs in the center as desired. You can get a canister of varied sized ornaments at Walmart at a reasonable price.
Determine where to apply a hanger, then punch a hole in the cardboard and add a wire hanger. That’s it! Now I can’t wait to hang it on my mantle for the holidays.
Here’s one I made from some embossed wallpaper I had. To give it the shimmer, I wiped the cones with gold paint. I filled the center with glittery poinsettias I cut from an unused centerpiece.
Here’s a close up showing the painted and unpainted cones.
Here’s my wrapping paper wreath over my mantle…so blessed to have all these stockings to fill!

These paper wreaths are really FUN to make. They make wonderful gifts too.
Here’s another wrapping paper one I made to give to my daughter to hang in her new home for Christmas.
I’m also making one for my Mother for a Christmas gift using scrapbook paper in colors to go with her decor. And instead of adding bulbs in the center I’m adding a multi-layered sign that says “MOM”.
