Paper Flower Wreath

I saw this image on Pinterest for a paper dahlia wreath:


 I thought it was beautiful.  So, I decided to try one for myself.  I've been trying to spruce up my front porch and make it a little more welcoming.  We have recently pulled up all the shrubbery from the front of the house in preparation of some new landscaping, so it looks a little barren out there.  I got some fresh new pillows for our bench in a bright turquoise, a new welcome mat from Target, and a couple pots of flowers to brighten things up.



The bench is one that my grandpa made years ago.  It's been sitting outside for years and needs some major work, but for now I'm just calling it 'shabby chic'.


That's our new dog, Odie.  Odie says hi.  He adopted us.  He came up one evening around dusk when I was sitting outside on the front porch.  He trotted up, lay down on my feet, sighed and went to sleep.  It was like he said, "SIGH... Okay, I'm tired of walking so I think I'll live here now."  He's really sweet but had no collar, so we don't know if/who he belonged to.  He gets along with the cat, so that clinched it.  He's a keeper.  He's already spoiled.



Since turquoise seemed to be the main color theme out there, I decided to make my paper wreath in shades of turquoise.

It was really very simple to do, and Love, Pomegranate House has a great tutorial here.

Here's what I personally used for mine:
1 - 8" cardboard cake round;
6 sheets 8.5" x 11" cardstock, cut into fourths, in the darkest shade for the outer row (23 total cones);
2 sheets 12" x 12" cardstock, cut into sixths, in the medium shade for the outside inner row (12 total cones);
2 sheets 12" x 12" cardstock, cut into ninths, in the medium shade for the inner inner row (12 total cones);
2 sheets 12" x 12" cardstock, cut into ninths, in the lightest shade for the inside (21 total cones)
hot glue;
small piece of ribbon for hanging.

Here are the pictures of the process, it's really pretty self-explanatory.


Cut your paper into the sizes listed above, roll each piece into a cone shape, glue and set aside.  Then smash the ends together and glue those onto your cardboard round.


Keep layering until the round is completely covered and you have a flower.



Ta da!  That's it.  Pretty simple right?  It was a little time consuming, but not bad at all.  I'd say the whole process took me about 30-45 minutes.



Here's a shot of how it looks from behind.


And to hang, I just hot glued a little loop of ribbon onto the back.


And voila, you have a paper dahlia wreath.




It was so simple and I liked it so well, I decided to make a second one for my back door!  Pretty, huh?


I'll keep you posted on how they hold up over time.  Thanks for stopping by!
