Woodland Fall Paper Wreath by Laura's Crafty Life #CricutExplore #CricutDesignSpace

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. 

Supplies Needed:

  • Cricut Explore
  • 12 x 12 Cutting Mat
  • Cricut Scraper
  • 1 sheet brown card stock (pine cone)
  • 1 sheet dark green card stock (pine needle)
  • 1 sheet each – red card stock, yellow card stock, black card stock, green card stock (poppy)
  • 1 sheet peach paper (small roses)
  • 1 sheet orange paper (large roses)
  • 1 sheet dark red paper (small roses)
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Floral wire and wire cutters
  • Grape vine wreath form

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 of the 3D pinecones. All of the images are from the 3D floral home decor cartridge. The handbook was very helpful in showing how to assemble all the different flowers. To make the pine cone, you cut out the pine cone shapes using your Cricut Explore

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. 

Wire for making 3D pine cone

You start with the little triangular piece on your wire.

Add triangle piece to floral wire

Then you will put 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 your way down 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.

I created three pine cones, three pine needles, one dahlia flower, two poppies, four small peach roses, two large orange roses and four of the smaller red rose shapes.

Again, all the shapes are from the 3D floral home decor cartridge. The handbook is so helpful for putting the flowers together. My biggest tip, is if you are going to use hot glue (which I did), use a generous amount! If not, your flowers will pop apart!

Once all the pieces were cut, I started to attach them to my wreath form. To create this wreath form, I actually started with a straw colored grapevine wreath from Dollar Tree. I added dark stain and allowed the wreath to dry. Now, it looks like a more expensive high end wreath and I only paid a dollar!

I attached the pine cones with more floral wire. I looped a piece of wire through one of the bottom pine cone points.

I then looped that through the wreath, tightened the wire and snipped the excess.

To attach all of the flower and extra leaves I used my 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! I started with the larger flowers. Then, I added the smaller flowers and leaves as filler.
