Make a Fiesta Flower Wreath

Who says wreaths have to be lush with evergreen leaves? For a fiesta-inspired party, take a trip south of the border by creating a colorful wreath using bright and festive paper flowers.


Materials Needed:

  • 18-inch wreath form
  • bright-colored yarn
  • grosgrain ribbon
  • pliers
  • hot glue gun
  • large paper flowers with stems
  • small paper flowers with stems
  • artificial baby's breath

Cover Wreath Form

Using one continuous piece of yarn, wrap the entire wreath form until it's completely covered. Fasten each end with a small drop of hot glue.



Attach Large Flowers

Attach large flowers in a cluster, wrapping wire stems around wreath form. Twist stems together to fasten.



Attach Small Flowers

Add smaller flowers to top and bottom of large flower cluster. Continue fastening by twisting and manipulating wire stems.



Attach Flower

Create paper-flower "stickers" by adhering to wreath with hot glue. Place these above and below paper-flower cluster to add a tapered shape to the edges of the design.



Add Faux Baby's Breath

With hot glue gun, add small pieces of artificial baby's breath flowers throughout paper-flower cluster to fill in any holes or gaps. Finish by securing all flowers and stems in place with a drop of glue.



Attach Hanging Ribbon

Cut ribbon to twice desired length and fold in half. Around top of wreath, pull loose ends through looped end and tighten. Attach to wall or doorway with nail, or hang from hook.
