DIY: Paper Flower Wreath

Earlier this week Johanne featured this beautiful paper flower wreath by Alisa Burke. I wanted to make it on the weekend but I was too eager and made it the night after Johanne’s post. Here’s the finished product:

It wasn’t hard to make at all but it was time consuming. Wrapping the Styrofoam form was the most annoying part for me but crumpling the paper (to add texture) was kind of stress relieving. Next time I would make flowers of different sizes, just as Alisa suggested in her tutorial. I completely overlooked this detail. Oh, and I used white printer paper instead of butcher paper.

I’m putting it on my door this weekend to welcome spring and all my springtime guests!

      Give it a try! It’s not hard…just a bit time consuming. I used regular white craft glue instead of a glue gun so I had to hold things in place a little longer than if I had used a glue gun.

    I think it looks amazing! I love it Jordana, so happy you made this little project happen. I agree that crumpling paper would be so darned stress-relieving!! 🙂

    Can’t wait to see it on your door!
