What’s better, cozier, and more inviting than plaid flannel and fluffy, soft, chenille yarn? A DIY Let It Snow Christmas Wreath! Plaid flannel just screams Christmas to me. This wreath gathers everything that’s warm and cozy about Christmas and wraps into one adorable wreath that is the perfect way to add a welcoming look to your front door. Wood slices used in decorating is huge right now. I just love the rustic look it gives this wreath, it reminds me a gathering wood for a warm fire in the fireplace.
It is super easy and fun to make your own wreath. This is one of those projects that you can really make even more unique to you by choosing a plaid flannel that you really love and also finding the yarn that works with your flannel.
Materials you will need:
- Foam wreath base (a straw one will work as well).
- 1 yd. of plaid flannel (depending on the size of the wreath you are making a yard is plenty!)
- White yarn of your choice. I found this fluffy chenille yarn and thought it was perfect for the fluffy “snow.”
- 3 wood slices (I got mine from a birch tree in our yard that we had to cut down, but you can also get them at pretty much any craft store).
- Ribbon for hanging.
- Glue gun.
- Wood burner. You don’t need to burn the lettering in the wood if you don’t want to. Writing it on with a marker or a paint pen will give you a nice look as well. I have a wood burner and I like using it so that is how I chose to do mine.
- 3 mini trees. I got mine at Walmart.

First, cut your fabric into strips. I cut mine about 4 inches wide. I used a rotary cutter to cut my fabric but scissors will work just fine. The strips don’t need to be super perfect. Then you can wrap the fabric around the wreath base. I just glued one end of a fabric strip to the wreath base and started wrapping the fabric around. Then I glued the other end down and started again until my wreath was covered in fabric. I did go back and glue down a few parts of the fabric that weren’t laying as flat as I wanted them to.
Next wrap the yarn around the bottom of the wreath. This will create the snow part of the wreath for your trees to sit in. You can add as much yarn as you would like, it just depends on how fluffy you want it to look. I used my glue gun to glue the ends of the yarn down to hold it secure.
Add your lettering to the wood slices. I drew words on the wood slices before burning it so I would have a guide. If you are using a marker or a paint pen you could probably do it without the guide if you are confident in your lettering skills. You can get a simple wood burning tool for pretty inexpensive. You can get the one I use here.
Glue your wood slices onto the wreath. Really you could put them anywhere on the wreath that you want. Then glue on the little trees. The trees have a plastic base that is really easy to remove. Then I just added some glue to the bottom of the tree and pushed the wired down into the foam wreath a little to hold it secure.
Next just make a ribbon loop for hanging. I added a bow to mine because I like the way it looks, but I think you could absolutely leave the bow off and it would be really cute.
So there you have it! Remember to have fun and above all let your own creativity guide you to finding your own personal style.
