Christmas Origami Wreath Pattern Links



Make paper wreaths for Christmas with this pattern resource page

This origami pattern resource page offers you a great pick full of both fun and free paper folded garland and Christmas Holiday wreath instructions to follow. You can use these to make your own paper based mini wreaths for handmade cards, ornaments and decorations and even (if you can scale up massively with your paper size) ones which you could hang up on a door.

These paper designs are perfect for your seasonal paper crafting and could also be adapted with a changed color scheme to work for Valentine's, Mother's Day and even as spooky little wreaths for Halloween which I can imagine would look eerily fantastic in a range of black, gray and orange papers. You'll discover some wonderful tutorials and instructions below. The first one is my very own pattern and then there are a range of other wonderful instructive links and also a handy video for you to watch right from this page.

My Christmas Holiday Handmade Card Tutorial


Handmade card with paper folded wreath for Christmas

Here's my very own tutorial (link given below) which has step by step photos on how to make this easy Christmas card using some simple origami and paper folding techniques. You don't need to make a handmade card because you could also turn this into a mini hanging ornament too or a decoration. The tutorial comes complete with detailed and step-by-step photos for you to follow through with. If you don't want to make this particular design, then there are also plenty of other links to other projects just below. Don't miss the great video tutorial further down this page too!


Ideal for Your Wreath Designs: My design for cards uses smaller 2-3 inch squares in order to fit onto the front of a regular sized greeting card-blank. But if you're wanting to make this popular Holiday themed design for something else like a hanging ornament, window decoration or scrapbook piece then you'll probably stick with the regular sized 6 inch origami papers.

Here's a pack that comes in 12 different shades of green. You could work from light to dark shades or have them all mixed for a wonderful effect. There are 48 sheets of origami paper in 12 shades of green in this pack.

Look out for some specialist paper that you can use including patterned, two-color, glow-in-the-dark and metallic foils. Choosing a suitable paper to start with makes it ideal for whatever project you want to complete. Don't forget to check out the eBay to find suitable patterned and plain paper to make your wreaths with. Not only might you find better deals than you'd get elsewhere but it's great for finding unusual designs too.

Pillar box red works especially well with a traditional Christmas shade of green and so why not use this to add in a touch of vibrant red as little round quilled pieces to represent the berries among the paper leaves. Basic paper quilling is not hard and circles are very easy to make. You can create some round, red circles to form berries to glue over the top of your finished wreath design. It just gives you another idea as to how you can change this paper project up to look a little different.
