Hey there friends, Becki here, to share with you a family wreath that I created using a wood wreath from Jillibean Soup and some bold patterned papers from the Pebbles Everyday collection. I used my Silhouette to create the flowers and the “family” portion of the wreath. I used cut files to create the flowers. I love creating with 3d paper flowers. (Remember the “Spring” home décor piece I created earlier this year?)
Using premade cut files makes projects like this SO easy! I added a yellow button to the center of one flower.
Here are a few tips for creating your own paper flowers.
- Bend the paper slightly to give the petals dimension, but don’t crease the paper.
- Use strong adhesive. I prefer glue dots or a hot glue gun. Both of these hold the flowers together with minimal or no drying time.
- Choose patterned papers that are double sided. Most of the time you’ll be able to see the backside of the paper, so make sure it’s a print that you’d like to be visible.
- Add buttons, gems, enamel dots, or brads to add some extra interest or dimension to your flowers.
This pink flower is my favorite part of this wreath. It took a little longer to create, but I LOVE how it turned out.
I hope these tips have inspired you to create your own family wreath with paper flowers. Thanks for stopping by today; I’ll see you next Thursday!
