It’s crazy how pretty this easy Cricut wreath is. I was on the hunt for Cricut home decor projects and came across rolled paper flowers. It gave me the idea to make a Cricut wreath. I can’t believe I created this with only 16 sheets of cardstock paper and a wreath frame!
Making The Cricut Wreath With Paper Flowers
This is seriously one of the easiest Cricut wreath ideas. This is the exact SVG file I used. To make this paper wreath, you may first need to read my Easy Paper Flowers With Cricut post. This will give you some tips on how to make the flowers themselves.
I also wanted to mention that I highly recommend the Cricut Maker. I have so much fun with my Cricut machine.
If you’re trying to decide which Cricut machine to buy, don’t hesitate to spend a little extra and get the Cricut Maker. You can also use Cricut Explore to make this project as well. You may have noticed that I linked a Cricut Maker Bundle for you.
I wrote another post about the best places to buy Cricut Bundles! If you’re asking, “Should you buy a Cricut bundle?”, then the answer is yes, yes yes!
You can find the paper leaf wreath in this post.
Supplies I Used To Make Paper Flower Wreaths With Cricut
- 16 sheets of cardstock
- Reverse Tweezers found in the set – They make your life SO much easier!
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore
- mini wire wreath frame (You can’t beat that price)
- glue gun
- burlap fabric (pick something that matches the color paper you choose)
- Ribbon or twine for hanging
- Paper flower SVG (my favorite Cricut flower template)
You can also make a similar wreath with book page flowers.
Assembling the Cricut Wreath
Here are the step-by-step instructions for making this simple paper wreath:
First, I wrapped the entire wreath frame in white burlap fabric and secured the fabric with glue. This gives the flowers something to stick to when using a wire wreath frame.
You don’t have to use burlap. Any fabric will do. This wreath frame would work great if you still need to buy one.
I cut 15 flowers with my Cricut Maker using the fine point blade. My wreath is 8″. I was able to slip my twine for hanging between two flowers at the end, but it might have been easier to do this first.
Then I laid the rolled paper flowers out in a circle to arrange them in the way I wanted. My goal was to use every paper flower in my template because I wanted to see what each flower would look like. Three flowers were duplicated to complete the wreath, using 15 flowers total.
After gluing the first paper flower, I then had to press the second flower up against the first to get them tight enough to where the wreath frame and burlap didn’t show through. I repeated this process until the entire wreath frame was covered.
These leaf patterns are from Canva. I have a pro account and it gives me the freedom to design what I want. I can also save my designs as SVG files which makes them easier to upload into Cricut Design Space. It’s another option if you don’t want Cricut Access.
Canva has a lot of font choices and they are adding more and more features all of the time. The leaves I cut for this Cricut flower wreath cut very nicely and some of them had very fine stems.
Cricut tools for making rolled paper flowers that might make your life easier are included in this basic Cricut tool set. I use the spatula to lift the paper off of the mat and the special tweezers with the reverse grip. They hold shut which makes rolling the flowers a lot easier! You’ll use the various tools in the set all of the time so it’s totally worth it!
