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. 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.
This wreath was super cheap to make. I’m sure you can use any time 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, 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. You can even use fabric strips.
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.
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!https://www.pinterest.com/hootshack/best-crafts-and-diy-projects-to-make/
