Materials + Tools

  • origami paper
  • cardstock
  • bone folder
  • poster board
  • large bowls
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun

Make Wreath Base

Trace two bowls into poster board to get a large ring. Cut it out and set aside.

Cut Origami Paper

Cut green origami paper into 2" and 2.5" squares. Fold in half diagonally and use a bone folder to make your fold crisp. Cut off the tip of the triangle.

Fold Leaves

Fold your triangle in a diagonal accordion fold, using your bone folder to keep your folds sharp.

Trim Leaves

Unfold the paper and cut the edges into a leaf shape.

Make Additional Leaves

Make additional leaves by scoring a line down a piece of cardstock. Fold it in half and cut half of a leaf shape down the fold. Open them up to reveal your leaves.

Glue Together

Use hot glue to paste your leaves all the way around the wreath.

Make Flowers

Make a flower by cutting a spiral into another piece of origami paper. Cut a wave into the outside edge of the spiral. Roll it up to get a flower shape. Put down a dollop of hot glue onto a piece of cardstock and press the flower down onto it. Once it dries, cut it out from the cardstock.

Glue Flowers

Hot glue your flowers to the wreath.
