This is such a fun & unique project. Make it your own by using different colored cardstocks, and sizing the flowers differently. I hang this paper floral wreath inside of my home, as moisture would probably warp the wreath. Try different colors for different holidays!

What you’ll need:

  • Various colors of cardstock
  • Strong Adhesive
  • Twine or string for hanging
  • Paper Floral Wreath cut file found in the Silhouette Design Store

How to assemble:

Use your Silhouette cutting machine to cut the designs out of cardstock. I used 5 different colors of cardstock, a dark green, light green, mint, yellow, and white.

Get yourself some strong adhesive. Hot glue could also as well, but we’ll be glueing down some pretty small pieces, so a smaller tipped nozzle on a bottle works well. Depending on how thick your base paper is for the circle, cut out an additional circle & glue that to the first. We don’t want the base circle warping when hung.

Start assembling your smaller pieces. I start with the leaves onto the branches. The branches are super skinny, so I used a toothpick with adhesive on it to place glue on the spindly pieces. Do this with both sides. Don’t glue them down onto the base circle yet, we need to get a feel for how the other pieces will look.

I then add in the single pieces leaves, and then the smaller delicate pieces. Again, don’t glue them down, just see how they look and arrange as necessary.

Next we’ll assemble our flowers. This wreath includes 3 flowers, each comes with two layering pedal pieces, and 2 layering middle pieces. Take a curved object, I used my hook tool, and curve the edges of the pedals upwards, like you’re curling a ribbon. Do this to all of the pedal pieces, and then do it to the middle pieces as well to get a natural curve. To assemble the flowers, glue two pedals together, then glue two middle parts together, and then glue the middle onto the pedal pieces. Simple!

Now that the flowers are assembled, put them onto your wreath & arrange to your taste. Once you’re liking the look of the wreath, start gluing down the pieces onto the base circle. I start with pieces at the bottom, and kind of work my way up the sides. I like to glue as little as possible, and just at the base of the pieces. That way, you can curve & bend the pieces to give it more of an organic feel. I hang these on doors inside my home. These would probably warp with moisture, so I don’t recommend hanging them outdoors.

Enjoy!
