A Different Fall Wreath Idea

This post includes affiliate links.

Wreaths are popping up all over the place but I had a different fall wreath idea. Instead of doing a burlap wreath, I decided to make a paper flower wreath. The one I made is not to be hung outside on your front door but on your wall. I put the wreath on a painted canvas board and framed it.

I took a 8X10 canvas board (You know how much I love my canvas boards!) and painted it with DecoraArt Americana burnt orange acrylic paint. I used three coats.

I then put an image of a wreath on the board so I had a patter to follow. I didn’t think I could make an even circle without it, so I cheated a bit.

Then I took a pattern from Cricut design space to use for my rolled flowers. I used three different brands of paper to get the colors that I wanted. (Core’dinations, Reflections and Cricut cardstock) This gave me a variety of different shades yellows and oranges. I also used four different patterns for the rolled flowers.

I put the canvas board into a frame to help me see how far to the edge I could put the flowers.

I then arranged the flowers on the canvas board until I had them to where I wanted them. 

I had some leaf embellishments laying around that I thought would add a bit of depth to the wreath. I have no idea where I got them from and I haven’t been able to find them since. But it worked nicely for this project.

Once I had the flowers and leaf placed to my liking, I hot glued them on to the canvas. 

But I felt that it needed something else so I tied a bow from a yellow ribbon. I glued the ends down to keep them stable.

It turned out great. It’s a paper flower wreath that I’d make again and again. I’ll put it in my living room and be able to use it straight through Thanksgiving.

Give this wreath a try and let me know how it turned out for you. What colors did you use? Did you use Cricut design space to cut out the rolled flowers?

If you enjoyed this post or know of someone else that would also enjoy it, I’d be honored if you would share it.
