Paper Flower Wreath Kristin Guy

Materials Needed:

  • 18" grapevine wreath
  • floral tape and wire
  • crepe paper in a variety of colors

Download and Cut Blooms

Download flower template and cut out desired blooms. We recommend 10-15 flowers of varying styles for an 18-inch wreath.

Create Paper Roses

Cut out 8-10 large rose petals and 6-8 smaller petals depending on fullness of bloom desired. Cut with paper grain running vertically for easier folding. Starting with the smaller petals, wrap around top of floral wire one at a time (image 1). Secure base with a small amount of floral tape. Alternate positioning of each petal to create a fan-like effect around the base of bloom (images 2 and 3). Repeat steps with larger petals, and fluff each layer of crepe paper as you go. Add 1-2 leaves, and attach with floral tape (images 4 and 5).

Create Paper Lilies

Cut out 11-12 lily petals depending on fullness of bloom desired. Cut with paper grain running vertically. Curl six petals into a cone and attach against (not around) the top of floral wire one at a time using floral tape (image 1). Secure base with extra floral tape. Once center blooms are in place, wrap remaining petals flat around base of bloom, alternating positioning of each petal to create a fan-like effect around the base of bloom (image 2). Repeat steps, overlapping layers of petals and fluffing each layer of crepe paper as you go (image 3). Add 1-2 leaves, and attach with floral tape (image 4).
