If you celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday, I hope you had an enjoyable holiday. We enjoyed spending time with family. Other than a really bad sore throat + head cold that I’m fighting, I enjoyed the day. We went to my husbands sisters house. The food was delicious and the company was even better! This morning, I’m not doing any shopping, I’m chilling out at home, doing a little bit of work and hoping to play games and watch some Christmas movies with my kids a little later today. I would be decorating for Christmas today, but my husband is gone for the day and the boxes are too heavy for me to lift + with the way I feel, I don’t have the energy to put all of the decorations up anyway! 🙂 I am going to share with you how to make these adorable DIY Mini Christmas Wreaths for Kitchen Cabinets today though. I made these last year and shared them on instagram, but I wanted to share them here with you today. I don’t have mine out yet, but I can’t wait to get them back out this year and put up in the kitchen!

DIY Mini Christmas Wreaths for Kitchen Cabinets Supplies:
- Cricut Maker (with standard & rotary blade)
- FabricGrip Mat
- LightGrip Mat
- Red Felt
- Green Cardstock
- Mini Wreaths
- Hot Glue Gun
- Design Space Cut File
The first thing I did was count how many upper cabinets that I wanted to put the wreaths on. Once I knew how many wreaths I needed for my cabinets, I cut that many felt bows. For cutting the bows, I used the rotary blade.
Then I cut a sheet full of the greenery for the wreaths. I didn’t count these, because I didn’t know how many each wreath would need until I started putting them together. I used the standard fine point blade to cut these from the green cardstock.
Assembling the Bows
Once I had all the bow pieces cut, I started gluing them together. I put some hot glue in the center of the bow piece, folded it over, and secured it in the center. Then I added glue to the back part of the bow.
I attached the bow piece that I had rounded to the backing. Then I added glue to the small strip and placed it on the front of the bow. I turned the bow over and added glue to the back.
Then I folded the rest of the strip over to secure the center part of the bow at the back. Then the bow was finished. I did this with each of them before I started assembling the wreath.
Assembling the Wreath
Now I was ready to put the wreath together. I used about eight pieces of the greenery per wreath. I placed four in kind of a square shape on the wreath, using the hot glue gun. Then I added four more pieces in between each one. Once I had the wreath done, I added glue to the back of the bow and added it.
The little bows just look perfect on these DIY Mini Christmas Wreaths for Kitchen Cabinets, don’t they?
These would be super cute as ornaments on a tree as well, wouldn’t they?
I seriously adore the way these DIY Mini Christmas Wreaths for Kitchen Cabinets turned out and they were super inexpensive. I would have spent a lot more money just buying mini wreaths.
Do you enjoy creating your own Christmas decor this time of year? I wouldn’t ever get any new Christmas decor if I didn’t create my own. 🙂 I don’t have the money to buy new this time of year.
