Woodland Fall Paper Wreath. Make a beautiful paper flower wreath for fall with a Cricut machine and cardstock.
** I made it to the Top 10!!! **
I am so excited to be participating in another round of Cricut Design Space Star. This month’s category is Holiday Home Decor/Gift Ideas and our team theme is Natural Holiday.
I was searching through the image library in Cricut Design Space and found some adorable 3-D pine cones. I decided to make a beautiful holiday wreath that I can use for the fall or winter holiday season.

How to Make a Paper Flower Wreath
- Cricut Machine
- 12 x 12 Cutting Mat
- Scraper Tool
- Cardstock, 1 sheet each*
- Dark Green
- Dark Red
- Glue Gun
- Floral Wire
- Wire Cutters
- Grape Vine Wreath
* Please note, some of the smaller shapes can be with 8 1/2 x 11 card stock or paper or even a scrap sheet.
To start, I made three 3D pinecones. All of the images are from the 3D Floral Home Decor image set. The handbook was very helpful in showing how to assemble all the different flowers.
Start by cutting out all the paper pieces with the Cricut.

3D Paper Pinecones
Then, cut a piece of floral or jewelry wire. I cut mine longer than needed to be sure I had enough space. You will add your pieces to the pine cone, starting from the top of the pine cone and working your way down.
You start with the little triangular piece on your wire.
Then poke the wire up through the middle of the smallest pine cone piece. Working your way around you will slip the wire through each of the holes in the ends of the star-like shape. This will create the pine cone shape.
Keep working up the wire, adding the next biggest piece as you go.
You will finish off with the flower-shaped piece. I made a loop with my round nose jewelry wires to keep the pine cone together. Snip off any excess wire.
3D Paper Flowers
I created three pine cones, three pine needles, one dahlia flower, two poppies, four small peach roses, two large orange roses, and four smaller red rose shapes.
Again, all the shapes are from the 3D Floral Home Decor image set. The handbook is so helpful for putting the flowers together.
The roses are simply rolled from the outside in, and then use hot glue to attach them to the circle shape at the end.
Helpful Tip: If you are going to use hot glue (which I did), use a generous amount! If not, your flowers will pop apart!
Add Paper Flowers to Wreath
Once all the pieces were cut, I attached them to my wreath form.
To create this wreath form, I purchased a straw-colored grapevine wreath from Dollar Tree. With a little dark stain, it looks more like an expensive high-end wreath and I only paid a dollar! But you can also purchase grapevines relatively inexpensively from JoAnns.

Attach the pine cones with more floral wire. Loop a piece of wire through one of the bottom pine cone points.
Then, loop the wire through the wreath, tighten it, and snip the excess.
Attach all the flowers and extra leaves with a glue gun.
For this entire project, I used a low temp heat gun so there was less of a chance of me burning myself. Please be careful when using a glue gun with small embellishments!
When making wreaths, I always start with the larger flowers. Then, I add the smaller flowers and leaves as filler.
I love that this wreath could be displayed for both fall and winter. And those pine cones are just too adorable! I want to make a whole bowl full to display!
