DIY Marshmallow Wreath:

Back in 2014, I crafted my first marshmallow wreath. It was one of those impromptu late-night projects that I created out of passion and for which I failed to write any sort of tutorial. (Oops!) Flash forward to 7 years later and after many, many requests, I’m finally bringing you this Marshmallow Wreath tutorial!

That OG marshmallow wreath that I made back in 2014 has since been put to rest. I made the horrible mistake of putting it in my attic and it melted into a sticky mess that could not be saved. (FYI: Do not be like me. If you make this wreath, store it in a dry, even temperature location.)

I was kind of bummed about it and my mom came to the rescue and surprised me by making one for me as a Christmas gift two years ago. Here is the one she made:

As you can see, this one is a bit bigger than my original wreath.

Because I wanted to show you the process from start to finish, I decided to make another marshmallow wreath. I went a bit smaller than the previous two. This way I could share the process with you, and also make something a little different.

Sound good?

Before we get into the tutorial, it’s worth mentioning that this wreath is really easy to make. I mean REALLY easy. Also, depending on the size of the wreath, I think it comes together quickly. If you have a good hour to dedicate to it, that’s probably an adequate amount of time.

With all this being said, I will get to the heart of things and teach you how to make a marshmallow wreath.

Start with your wreath form. You can use any size you like. This is a 10-inch form. (It’s likely not needed, but I did include a printable version of this tutorial below if you’d like to print it out to reference as you work.)

Grab your marshmallows and toothpicks. For this size wreath, I needed almost 3 standard-sized bags of marshmallows and I used standard double-sided toothpicks.

Starting with the outer edge of the wreath, press a toothpick into the wreath form, and then add a marshmallow to the toothpick. (I told you this was easy.) The toothpick should be in the wreath far enough so that it doesn’t stick out of the opposite end of your marshmallow.

Continue working all the way around the outer edge until it is full. I like to place the marshmallows pretty close together for a filled-in look. You can add the marshmallows in any direction you’d like. For my wreath, I varied the direction for a more whimsical look. In regards to the wreath my mom made, she was pretty consistent with how she placed the marshmallows so the wreath looks a bit tidier. Choose whichever look you like best.

With the outer ring of the wreath complete, repeat the same process in the inner ring.

Once you have the outside and inside of the wreath complete, just start filling in. I recommend filling in one area and working your way around the wreath until you end up back where you started.

Once the wreath is full and filled, add on a ribbon and a bow and hang that beauty up.

You can find the ribbon I used HERE. I think this red and white striped ribbon pairs perfectly with the marshmallows. If for some reason that is sold out, check out these HERE and HERE.

Now, I will say that the toothpicks are not foolproof. You are likely going to have a rogue marshmallow or two, especially once you hang it. When this happens, pull out your hot glue gun and glue those marshmallows into place. I had about 3-4 marshmallows that were being stubborn on this particular wreath. After using a few dabs of hot glue, I’ve had no other issues.

And that is it my friends! I told you this was a simple project.

I think the end result is so cute and perfect for holiday decorating. Don’t you? I typically hang mine in or near my kitchen, but it will look fabulous anywhere.

Also, you can keep this for years and years as long as you don’t store it in an extremely hot attic as I did. Keep it dry and at a stable temperature and all will be well. The marshmallows will harden over time but they will keep their shape and fluffiness for years.
