Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas anymore these days. People are creating beautiful wreaths to adorn their front doors for all seasons and holidays. And I decided to create my own wreath for the Fall.
Since this was my first venture into wreath-making, I wanted to keep things pretty simple and uncomplicated. So I used a pre-made grapevine wreath that I purchased at my local craft store. I wrapped it with some retired ribbon from my ribbon stash (aka “hoard”).
I knew I wanted to incorporate this large bow I had created using some Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper. So I plopped that wonderful paper bow right on the top of my wreath. And the paper pattern matched perfectly with my ribbon! (Tutorial for that fabulous bow is coming soon!)
For the floral bunches, I created a bunch of punched paper flowers using my Blossom Punch, 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch, and 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. I punched the shapes from some sheets of First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper and some card stock in Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla. I used Glimmer Brads for the centers of my flowers for a nice little pop of extra color.
I adhered my paper flowers in a nice arrangement on my wreath using some strong liquid adhesive. Then I added a few little leaves using the branch shape from the Bird Builder Punch for some nice detail. Voila! A simple wreath perfect for Fall.
I had so much fun incorporating paper crafting into my home decor. You can bet I’ll be doing this more often! So be on the lookout for some more home decor ideas using our favorite products from Stampin’ Up!
