What is Christmas wreath?
A wreath is an arrangement of plants, flowers, or objects that can be hung on a door or wall for decoration.
It’s called a wreath because of its circular shape. A Christmas wreath is one that is themed around the Christian celebration of Christmas and is most commonly red and green in the color scheme.
What does a Christmas wreath symbolize?
A traditional Christmas wreath has a circle shape to represent eternity or infinity.
It is made of evergreen plants, flowers, and other natural materials which are all symbols of life.

How to Transfer the Christmas Wreath Template to Watercolor Paper (Method One)
- Print out your Christmas Wreath template on standard printer paper.
- Tape your printed template to a window with light behind it so that you can see the outline of the pineapple coming through.
- Using a soft lead pencil (2B, 4B, 6B, or 8B), trace over the printed outline of the Christmas Wreath Template so that you can see through the paper. Do this quite firmly so that you have left enough lead on the surface to be transferred easily onto the watercolor paper.
- Place your printed Christmas wreath template with the traced pencil outline face-down on your watercolor paper.
- Using your pencil once again, trace the printed Christmas wreath outline so that the pencil line gets transferred to your watercolor paper.
- Voila! You have your transferred shape, and you don’t need to hand-draw it yourself!
- Now you can use your watercolor or watercolor brush pens and start your painting!
How to Transfer the Christmas Wreath Template to Watercolor Paper (Method Two)
Here are some quick steps to get your Christmas Wreath template ready to use.
- Open your Christmas Wreath Printable Template PDF and select print.
- Choose the size you want to print to.
- Print the stencil onto a mylar transparency sheet. (Alternatively, you can print the Christmas Wreath onto a standard piece of paper and then trace it onto a piece of plastic mylar after)
- On a cutting mat, use a craft knife to carefully cut out the shapes of your Christmas Wreath.
- Your stencil is now ready to use.
How to Create Watercolor Stencil Art
- Place your Christmas Wreath template on watercolor paper.
- Tape down your sheet of watercolor paper using artist masking tape.
- If you want to, you can start your watercolor painting by first applying a light wash of color before you begin with your top layer. This can create a lovely layered effect!
- Spray the back of your Christmas Wreath stencil using spray adhesive and stick it on your watercolor paper.
- Start applying washes of watercolor over the paper and the stencil. You will find that to paint into the crevices, and small spaces of the stencil you need to manipulate your paintbrush. It is important that the watercolor paint doesn’t bleed underneath the stencil, so always work with a light touch.
- Allow the paint to dry fully before removing the stencil.
- Use warm water and soap to gently wash the stencil (if using a plastic watercolor stencil) so that it can be reused and is ready for the next time!
