This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to easily make this darling Christmas Elf Wreath in about 30 minutes.

Christmas Elf Wreath Tutorial


This is a super easy to make wreath. It took less than 30 minutes to put together. I am sure you noticed it is a square framed wreath. That was intentional… just to be different. While I like a round wreath as much as the next person, this square wreath really came out well.

If you go the round-wreath-frame route, please let me know how it worked out for you! Did you use metal or foam, and how did the feet placement go?

Note: The templates are all pdfs. You need a pdf reader to open them. The most common pdf read is Adobe Reader. If your computer did not come with it pre-installed (or if you need to update your adobe), you can download it for free here. Just make sure you unclick that “Yes, install the free McAfee Security Scan Plus utility to check the status of my PC security. It will not modify existing antivirus program or PC settings.” box before you begin the install or update.
