12 Days of Christmas with Joans Craft World

On the eight day of Christmas…

We are at the final stretch until Christmas and today I am making a Family Snowflake Wreath.  I will be using two Cricut cartridges and my Cricut Expression machine.

For the base of the wreath, garland and bows I used the Christmas Noel Cricut solutions cartridge .  I cut the wreath at 6″ using the shadow function key.  Then for the garland and bows I cut them out at 2 1/4″.

I then decorated the wreath with Snowflakes.  I used the Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge.  There are a few snowflakes on this cartridge but I really liked the one that is called Snowflk4.  I used the layers function key and cut this snowflake at 2 1/2″ on white cardstock.  I also cut some out at 1″ to fill in the blank spaces on the wreath.

Now for the really fun part.  I want this snowflake wreath to be my family wreath, so I wrote the names of each family member on a snowflake.  Then on the garland I decided to write Our Family ~ A Bunch of Flakes.  I wrote this with a Zig 05 Millennium black marker.

I glued each flake onto the wreath with a Zig 2 way glue and finished it all off with some Stickles at the end of each Snowflake for that special shimmer.


I Love the way this Christmas Snowflake Wreath turned out, and I don’t mind being a flake as long as my family is with me.

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
