During the 16th century in Germany, pruning the tree was a part of the preparation process. “Limbs were often cut off in an attempt to make the tree more uniform in shape or to fit into a room,”. Instead of throwing the pieces of greenery away, the Europeans wove the excess into wreaths. Source: History – Christmas Wreaths Are a Classic Holiday Decoration With a Surprisingly Deep History

  • Wreath Pattern below
  • Tacky glue
  • Green tissue Paper
  • Miscellaneous beads and trim
  • Ribbon

  1. Print out Wreath pattern. Cut out the outline before you glue the tissue paper.
  2. Cut tissue paper into 2″ squares. Crumple each piece into a tight ball. Dip into white glue and place onto pattern. Continue crumpling and gluing down pieces until the entire pattern is filled.
  3. Clean out your odds and ends of beads and trim and decorate as you like. Make a bow and glue to the top of the wreath.
