3D Spring Flower Wreath

I have let our front door be bare long enough.  We had our Snowflake Christmas wreath up for the holidays, and then I just didn’t get around to making an “in between” wreath-like my Ribbon and Glitter Wreath-from last winter.  I think I hit a case of the winter blahs….I mean, when it’s 20 degrees outside {tops} for weeks upon weeks, I don’t feel like doing anything!  However, now that it is March, and spring is “right around the corner”….or so they say….the Silhouette Challenge for March was the perfect opportunity to freshen up the front door-with paper!  This month’s Silhouette Challenge is using paper.

Spring Flower Wreath

I had previously created these 3D Flowers for Natalie’s room.  They have held up really well, and I love them.  Combine those, with one of my new FAVORITE Silhouette supplies-Adhesive Backed Cardstock-and I present to you my 3D Spring Flower Wreath.

Supplies:

Silhouette Cutting Machine

Wreath form

Burlap, ribbon, yarn, etc.

T-pins

Hot glue

Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock, scrapbook paper, cardstock, etc.

Directions:

1.  Trace a basic flower shape on your Silhouette software.  Or, email me, and I’ll send you the file :).

2.  Wrap the wreath form in burlap, ribbon, yarn to cover the foam.  I wrapped mine in burlap.

3.  Score the large flowers with an “x” and fold along the scored lines.  Open it.  Then, fold again to create a 3D effect.

4.  Gently score the smaller flowers as well.  Adhere these to the larger flowers in the center.

5.  Embellish with a small glass bead to create the center of your flower.

6.  Arrange the flowers on the wreath form, and hot glue these to the wrapped wreath form.

Note:  I think that if you used a wood wreath form, that the large flowers would stick to this.  Obviously, I had to glue those on because they wouldn’t last long on the burlap.  However, the smaller center ones fit perfectly and stick well to the larger flowers.

There are so many color patterns, designs, and more that you could do with this basic technique.  If you’d like to see more on how I made the flowers for Natalie’s room, check out the DIY 3D Flowers post.  And for some more creativity with paper, visit my Silhouette Challenge friends!  So much creativity!
