I have said it many times, but I love making wreaths and finding new ways to make them. The inspiration for this wreath came from a visit to our local Home Depot with my husband who always has to look in the tool aisle. While I was patiently, or not so patiently, waiting for him to stop drooling over the latest gadget, I saw a container of wood biscuits for miter joints. It struck me how similar they look like leaves and thought they would make a great wreath. I decided to try it out.

Wood Biscuit Christmas Wreath
For this project you will need:
- 12″ flat wood wreath form
- Ryobi Wood Biscuits
- Wood stain in your choice of color
- Acrylic paints
- Craft brushes
- Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks
- Ribbon of your choice
The wood biscuits were easy to attach to the wood wreath form using the hot glue gun and glue. I laid them out in a pattern similar to leaves on a wreath.
I wanted to see how the wreath would look stained with gold accents so I applied two coats of Minwax Early American stain. I painted some of the “leaves” with gold metallic paint, but it just didn’t have the look I was hoping for.
It just didn’t look like a Christmas Wreath.
By painting some of the wood biscuits with green and white paint, the wreath finally had a more festive look to it. A red bow added to it makes it look even better.
I may attempt another one with all green or some other look for the upcoming holidays.
