To create this sweet spring wreath, start by cutting a ring from recycled corrugated cardboard. You can make the ring any size you wish, just remember that the larger the wreath ring, the more flowers you will need to cover it. My ring is approximately 6″
Paint the cardboard white and allow to dry completely.
Tie ribbon around the ring and leave the tails long for the hanger. Tie multiple trims together into one big bow and adhere to the ribbon hanger.
Die cut lots of flowers from various patterned papers. Die cut leaves from wool felt.
Stack die cut flower shapes together to create a whole bouquet of paper flowers. Use foam adhesive between some of the layers to create depth. Add canvas die cut scalloped circles to some of the layers. Secure some of the flowers with Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Silver Brad Settings.
Create custom bubble cap embellishments using the Round 14 and Round 25 Shape Studio Tools. Add bubble caps to flower centers.
Adhere flowers to wreath base, some directly and some using foam adhesive. Embellish with die cut paper leaves and hand-stitched felt leaves.
Are you ready for spring??
