My Cricut Model Recommendation
I 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’ll regret it if you don’t! You may have noticed that I linked a Cricut Maker Bundle for you. I wrote a post about the Best Cricut Bundles to Buy. 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 practicing.
How To Make A Paper Flower Wreath With Cricut
This wreath was super cheap to make. I’m sure you can use any type of wreath form. I like to use wire wreaths, straw wreaths, or, in this case, a foam wreath. Make sure to attach your ribbon or twine first. It’s so much easier than trying to do it later.
To make the paper flowers stick easier on this paper floral wreath, I wrapped my foam wreath with strips of tissue paper. I cut strips about 2 – 3 inches wide and wrapped them around the wreath frame. I used white tissue since my flowers are light colors. If you’re using darker colors, use something that closely matches the color of your flowers. You can even use fabric strips. A little dab of glue here and there will make the tissue stick.
I cut my flowers just barely over one inch each. Do you want to know how many flowers I ended up cutting? Ok, don’t run! It was about 350! I layered two flowers on top of each other, gluing each flower with one tiny dot in the center. Then I bent them up a bit and started gluing. I tried regular glue that dries clear and also tried a glue gun. I really didn’t find one any easier than the other. Just use what you have. Half of my layered flowers were blush and half were white.
As an update to this post, I made a Cricut Heart Wreath and I found a faster way to make the flowers. I put a tiny dot of hot glue on the bottom of one flower, used that same flower’s dot of glue to pick up the second layer, added another dot of glue, and then stuck the flower to the wreath form. This allowed me to glue several paper flowers without ever putting the glue gun down.
You can screenshot this pattern to use with your Cricut. I cut the flowers at about 1″ square and got 7 across and 9 down on an 8 1/2 x 11″ piece of cardstock.
I continued gluing flowers until the entire wreath was covered and then went back and tucked more into places that were a little sparse. I warned you that this was time-consuming! I think it turned out pretty though and I’m happy with the results. I’m glad I used an 8″ wreath!
