Making the Easy Paper Flower Wreath With Cricut
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.
Cricut is having a fall flash sale. Click the banner below to see their awesome prices on machines!
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.
When I first bought my Cricut, I didn’t get a bundle. I was super disappointed when I got home and I couldn’t make a single thing. The bundles are great savings and they get you started with a few products so you can get to creating. 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!
Things I Used To Make The Paper Flower Wreath With Cricut
- 16 sheets of cardstock
- 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
Making the Cricut 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. 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 in all.
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 nice 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!
