Step 1: Cut out Your Paper Flower Pieces

Grab the template for your flower wreath and the rest of your supplies. Choose which colors you want for your flowers and trace out your flower patterns from the template, then cut out all of your flower pieces. 

Select colored craft papers for the flowers and trace the patterns on the paper from the given template. Cut out the traced patterns like below.

Each flower will have 2 flower cut outs, 4 strips of paper, and a small circle for the center.

Step 2: Crease Your Flowers and Form Your Rings

Take your strip cut outs and form them into rings by gluing the ends together.

Create creases down the center of each of your flower’s petals by folding them from one petal tip to the petal tip across from it diagonally. 

Step 3: Layer your flowers

Now lay one of your flowers onto the other flower to create a layered effect. Make sure to place the petals in opposing fashion like showing in the photo below.

Step 5: Attach the Rest of Your Rings

Now attach the rest of your rings crossing the others to form a type of fringe in the center of your flower.

It’s best to go horizontally, then vertically, then across both of the diagonals of the center of your flower so your flower looks like the one in the photo below.

Step 6: Attach The Center of Your Flower

Now take your small circle cut out and glue it to the center of all of that fringe in the center of your flower.

Step 7: Repeat for More Flowers

Now you can admire your flower for a moment, then repeat the process several more times to create lots of flowers for your flower wreath. 

Also, cut out several green leaves to fill in the rest of your paper wreath, behind the flowers.

Step 8: Create a Wreath Base

Using your thick card stock, create a ring to form your wreath base. We used brown, but white or green would look great too.

Alternatively, you could use thin cardboard recycled from around the house.

Step 9: Start Gluing Your Paper Flowers to Your Wreath

One by one start gluing your paper flowers to your wreath. I would play with the composition a little before you start to glue them down. 

It’ll help you figure out how far apart to place your flowers and which colors look best where.

Step 10: Finish Assembling Your Paper Flower Wreath

Now you can finish assembling your floral wreath by gluing down all of your flowers and finishing it off with the green leaves in between.
