Do you love a more whimsical theme for your Christmas decor? This welcome Christmas wreath is perfect!

Coach Melissa from The Makers University Creative Coaching program drops a new tutorial using her signature pancake wreath style.

Christmas is a time for color. In this design Melissa is playing with a traditional holiday color palette, like black, white, and red. This classic color palette provides endless possibilities for creating unique wreaths.

With these three base colors to build off of you can create a rich and sophisticated look with matte finishes or go bold with high gloss shades. You can also combine the traditional palette with nature materials or other unexpected materials to bring texture and depth to your design.

Playing around with different textures, fabrics, and decorative elements will give your wreath a truly one-of-a-kind look that your friends and family will love!
