We recently added some amazing Santa placemats to our website and I thought it would be fun to get creative with one. If you’re part of The Shabby Tree then you know I love adding Santa decorations throughout my home for Christmas. I thought it would be fun to create a Santa wreath using one of our Santa paper placemats.

This paper placemat comes as a pack of 24 and you can find them on our website by clicking the link down below.


The supplies that I’ll be using are:

1. One 16” pizza pan from the Dollar Tree Plus

2. One Santa paper placemat from our website

3. Burgundy silk ribbon from our website

4. Drill and drill bit

5. Dremel

6. Hot glue

7. Greenery sprig

8. Sanding sponge

9. Scissors

10. Decoupage

11. Paint brush

The first thing that I did was drill holes going all around the pizza pan. You can drill your holes as big as you want and as many as you want. I drilled 128 holes and I drilled them big enough to fit two strands of ribbon through.

Once I had all of the holes drilled I then used the dremel to sand off any of the rough metal pieces.

I used the dremel and a sanding sponge to give the pizza pan a rough surface. This will help the decoupage and paper placemat stick to the pizza pan.

I added the decoupage to the pizza pan and then added the paper placemat.

I used my hand to smooth out any creases and then I added more decoupage over the paper placemat.


I poked holes through the paper placemat to see where to add the ribbon. You can add any type of ribbon to the wreath. I’ll be adding two strands of the silk ribbon through each hole.

I used a kabob stick to poke the ribbons through the hole and then placed the ends through the loop.

This will take time but you’ll need to add the ribbons to all the holes going around the pizza pan.

I cut apart a greenery sprig and added to the placemat.

I placed some of the greenery under the ribbon and added hot glue.

I added hot glue where needed to secure the greenery onto the paper placemat.

This turned out amazing and will look great mixed in with my Vintage Santas. I hope you’ll get creative and give this wreath a try.
