Wreaths! They’re one of my favorite things to craft. In fact, my wreath archives are almost worthy of a blog of their own. This particular wreath is a Fall-festive version of my ever popular leaves and lace felt wreath, which was inspired by these ombre wreaths. In addition to felt, I’ve also created a version of this wreath using duct tape! But today, it’s paper’s turn in the spotlight…
cardstock (I used 5 sheets of 12×12)
I used Fall-colored cardstock with a slightly raised dot pattern. I added the kraft/gold dot piece for a bit of shine. Obviously, you could do this with any variety of colors, and coordinate your wreath with any color scheme or holiday!
Step 1: Take your cardstock, and cut into 2″ wide strips. Take those strips and cut each strip into rectangles slightly less than 2.5″ long (I took each strip and cut into 5 rectangles). Cut each cardstock piece into a leaf shape.
Step 2: Using hot glue, attach a row of leaves onto the wreath form. Add a second row, overlapping the first.
Continue around the wreath form…
…and you’re done!
This came together rather quickly (about an hour or so), and I love thinking about all the different color/pattern variations you could use for this (I can’t wait to create a blue ombre one for the Summer!)
Thanks for reading all about my Fall paper wreath! Have a lovely day.
