Jen Goode is back again this month with a DIY quick country wreath that you don’t want to miss! I love that wood cutout and you will too!
I love a pretty wreath, especially for Christmas. This DIY quick country wreath with woodcut decor is easy to make and can be created in under 30 minutes. With the help of a Cricut Maker cutting machine, you can make the pretty woodcut ornament in no time. I’ll show you how to put this festive wreath together, then you can make one or make one for every window!
DIY Quick Country Wreath with Woodcut Decor
This holiday wreath project can be customized with your own favorite Christmas colors. Pick your ribbon and decorate the wreath to fit your holiday decor. I picked up some red and gold glitter ribbon at Michaels for 50% just a week ago! Use ribbon from your own stash or pick up something new.
If you don’t have the Maker or the knife blade, you can create the ornament with another material. Felt or cardstock or a faux leather would be pretty too.
- Cricut Maker cutting machine (See all about the Maker and cutting wood here.)

- Cricut Knife Blade (Learn more about the knife blade here.)
- Red and white twisted baker’s twine
- Red and Gold 1/2″ wide glitter ribbon
- Upload the fancy ornament cut file to Cricut Design Space. You can see more about uploading images here.
- Size the cut file to fit your project.
- Set the appropriate materials and cut settings and then let the Cricut do its job with all the cutting.
- Wrap your wreath with ribbon. I alternated colors so I wrapped with each color separately. Tie the ribbon/s off in the back.
- Once your ornament is finished cutting, weed out excess material. Smooth edges as necessary.
- Add a hanging loop to the top of the ornament with baker’s twine and tie off with a little bow.
- Add the ornament to the center of your wreath.
- There ya go, that’s it!
Where to buy: Basswood can be purchased at Michaels as well as the wreath and ribbon. You can find the Cricut accessories at Michaels, Joanns and directly through the Cricut online shop.
SVG cut file: the cut file for this project is available on my blog, here.
Tip when cutting basswood: I use the strong grip mat and also a small strip of duct tape to secure the basswood in place. I place the top at the very top and very bottom of the piece of wood.
Customize the look to fit your own holiday decor. Choose ribbon colors and sizes as well as the size of the ornament you create. You can also cut multiple ornaments in different sizes and colors and design a more elaborate center art piece for your Christmas ornament. Have fun with it, I can’t wait to see what you create!
