If you’re searching for that perfect holiday wreath design, take a look at this Christmas snowman wreath! With its adorable snowman sign surrounded by deco mesh and ribbons galore, it’s perfect for the holidays and will add that special festive sparkle to any door.
Hey, y’all! Today, I’m doing a tutorial on how to make our latest wreath kit, an adorable snowman deco mesh wreath that’s filled with ribbon tails!
I get a lot of requests from customers for holiday wreath designs that are a little more generic rather than being filled with holiday-specific images or phrases. In this case, I designed a wreath around a cutie-patootie snowman.
He’s definitely winter and holiday-related without being as blatant as images of Santa, reindeer, stockings, etc. The red and green ribbons help to make the Christmas Snowman Wreath more holiday-focused rather than reading as a wreath just for winter.
If you want to buy this wreath kit or any of our other wreath kit bundles, you can find them on DecoExchange. This specific design sold out nearly instantly. But never fear! We wouldn’t give you a great wreath tutorial without also giving you a list of the supplies and the step-by-step process so you can make it yourself.
This design is so much fun! I love holiday wreaths and the festive spirit they project. However, if you want a more beautiful winter-specific design, check out our Winter Evergreen Wreath.

How To Make A Christmas Snowman Wreath
Follow this wreath tutorial to make a Christmas snowman wreath of your own so you can sell it or hang it on your own door this holiday season!
Grab your mesh wreath base and straighten out the pipe cleaners to prepare them for adding mesh.
Next, let’s prepare our snowman sign!
Remove any stickers or packaging. Turn it over and place a dab of superglue in each of the corners.
Attach a mounting square to each corner (on top of the superglue).
Insert a pipe cleaner into each mounting square and secure them in place.
Make 10” poofs with your deco mesh, attaching them all around the top (inside edge) of the wreath base.
Next, take your mesh down to the bottom (outside edge) and continue the process of making 10” poofs.
Take your strips of 10” mesh and make ruffles. Attach one ruffle to each pipe cleaner all around the top of the wreath frame.
Take your 10” strips and curl them. Cross one over another in an “X” shape and attach that pair to one of the pipe cleaners on the bottom of your wire wreath frame. Continue around the frame, adding a curl pair to each pipe cleaner.
Grab your snowman sign. It should be dry now. Let’s use the pipe cleaners on the back to attach it to the wreath design on the right side.
It’s time to make our 5-layer bow.
Measure 8-inch tails with 7-inch loops in an “X” shape. The next layer will have 8-inch tails and 6.5” loops and sit on top of the bottom layer in an offset way so that you can see all the bows and tails.
Your 3rd layer will have 8” tails with 6” loops and offset the 2nd layer. Then, your 4th layer will be similar with the loops being slightly smaller at 5.5”.
Your 5th layer will be two 8-inch tails with one 5” center loop.
Take two pipe cleaners and attach them at their ends so that they make a double-length pipe cleaner.
Wrap your long pipe cleaner around the center of your bow and secure it by twisting tightly.
Make TWO more bows just like that one.
Attach each bow to the left side of the wreath, covering the side from the top to the bottom. Dovetail the ends.
Let’s make 7 ribbon tails with 4 of the ribbons (two 2.5” and two 1.5” ribbons). Dovetail all the ends.
Make pairs with your ribbon tails, pairing one of the larger ribbons with a smaller ribbon. Attach a set of ribbon tails to every set of pipe cleaners around the bottom of the wreath. Alternate ribbon tail pairs as you go around the wreath.
Then, add your 4 last pairs of ribbon tails to the top of the wreath, around the sign.
Your wreath is now complete!
