4 Holiday Wreaths and Garlands You Can Make at Home

Cheery wreaths and splashy garlands mean the holidays are here again. The most beautiful and original decorations don’t come from the store, but rather from your own inspired hands! This year, spend some time with family and friends creating your own DIY wreaths, garlands and paper chains. All you need is your PIXMA TS9521C printer, our free templates and seasonal inspiration. When you go the DIY route with holiday decorations, one thing is for sure: you know you won’t see any duplicates on the block!

Paper Leaf Christmas Wreath

By designing your own festive holiday wreath out of paper, you can count on it being vibrant and fresh all season long! To create your paper leaf wreath, print out our template on any colored cardstock of your choosing (green is great, but feel free to get creative with one of your PIXMA TS9521C printer's built-in patterns). Cut your leaves out, then use a hot glue gun to adhere them to a foam wreath, creating depth and layers as you go. When you’re done, think about attaching a few bright red bows for an extra splash of seasonal color. Hang your wreath on your front door, above your bed or wherever you and your family will enjoy it the most!

Holiday Wraths

Memory Photo Wreath

It’s time to put your favorite family photos to good use! Go through the year's snapshots on your camera or phone and choose a few favorites. Using your Canon IVY Mini Photo Printer, print out the snapshots that remind you of the happiest moments. Now comes the artistic part: glue the photos to a wire wreath frame or embroidery hoop for a simple, modernist-style. For the final holiday twist, intertwine some silver and gold tinsel between the cutouts of your family’s smiling faces. Keep the wreath for next year, and you can look back on this year's memories!

White Christmas Garland

Dreaming of a white Christmas? With this garland, your wish will come true, regardless of the weather! Print out this downloadable snowman template using your PIXMA TS9521C printer, then trace the snowman onto white cardstock and cut it out. Repeat the process for this reindeer template using brown cardstock instead. Then, hot glue some red twine to the back of your snowmen and reindeer (as many as you'd like) to keep them upright. Drape your Christmas garland over your mantle to turn your living room into the Winter Wonderland of your dreams!

Merry Christmas Banner

You don’t have to purchase an expensive, gilded banner to get the point across. Rather, make your own simple-but-elegant "Merry Christmas" banner using our printable letters. Print these out using your PIXMA TS9521C printer, string them together with twine and start adorning! If you’d like to further personalize it, add in some light-weight ornaments or jingle bells between the letters. Need ideas on where to place it? We think this one’s perfect for displaying on the tree.

Deck the halls, deck the walls and deck your door this year with crafty decor, straight from your imagination to your printer!
