Wreaths are a wonderful decoration for your home and don’t need to be limited to just your door, or even just for Christmas! Here are some fun ways to sew and stitch wreaths for your holiday decorations for Christmas and into the New Year.
Today’s Guest Curator:
Lisa from Pink Hollybush Designs
Hi, I’m Lisa. I sew, smock and blog over at Pink Hollybush Designs. Pink Hollybush Designs specializes in fabrics and patterns for smocking, but I also sew for myself and my adult daughters, so my blog covers a little bit of everything when it comes to sewing! I am excited to guest curate this post for Sew Mama Sew, and share with you a Wonderful Wreaths. When you are through checking out these fun projects, come on over to my blog, check out some more sewing ideas, and sign up for my newsletter. To celebrate, I am giving away two or my Smocked Wreath Ornament Kits to newsletter subscribers! You can follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook, as well my blog for more sewing and smocking ideas.
Lisa also recently shared Lacey Christmas.
Log Cabin Mini Quilt
First up is this Log Cabin Mini Quilt Tutorial from Christa Quilts. Use traditional Christmas prints, modern prints, or colors that match your décor.
Embroidered Christmas Dresden Pillow
If tackling even a mini quilt is more than you would like to take on, Jennie from Clover and Violet has a wonderful tutorial on making an Embroidered Christmas Dresden Pillow.
Christmas Wreath Cross-Stitch
If you would prefer to cross-stitch rather than quilt, Agnes Palko has made her Christmas Wreath Cross-Stitch pattern available for free on Craftsy.
Of course, the tree needs a wreath, and Rhondda of Oombawka Design will help you to crochet a wreath ornament for the tree or use it to hold a candle instead.
Rosemary Wreath Place Card Tutorial
Your holiday table could use a few wreaths as well, and Camille will be glad to show you how to add elegance with her Rosemary Wreath Place Card Tutorial.
Holly Wreath Stitching Card
Do you remember stitching cards when you were little – those cards with the shoelace that you threaded in and out? I loved them. Well, here is the adult version! Use the free Holly Wreath Template from Stitching Cards to make a beautiful card for that someone special, or put it in a frame for a special Christmas decoration. (See this tutorial on how to use the free template.)
Repurposed Shirt Wreath
Of course, I couldn’t forget the door! Sarah from Sadie Season Goods repurposed flannel shirts to make her wreath.
Felted Acorn Wreath
And if you are looking for something a little bit different that will carry you from fall through Valentine’s Day, you can try making some felted acorns and attach a heart like Claire from Pillar Box Blue.
Wish everyone Peace on Earth by painting your own wreath, using this printable, from Just Paint It!

Make classic quilts with contemporary style!
This beautifully curated collection showcases 14 designs from the celebrated Mountain Mist Series. The unique marketing campaign, which offered a free quilt pattern with every Mountain Mist batting purchase, inspired generations of quilters throughout the 20th Century. In Mountain Mist Historical Quilts, author Linda Pumphrey recreates her favorite patterns–from art deco-inspired designs to intricate appliques and traditional blocks–with current fabrics and techniques. The result: timeless designs that are as stunning today as when they were first introduced in the 1930s and ’40s.
