Vintage Paper Flower Wreath

Coupling paper flowers with a natural grape vine wreath is the perfect way to bring a vintage sentiment alive to decorate a front door or spring mantle.


Creating paper flowers is easier than you may think and with any flowers you have left over you can fasten them to twigs or branches to fill a vase to complement your wreath to keep that vintage feel across the whole house. 

You can make this wreath as uniform or as rustic as you wish. I opted to cut my flowers by hand, but you can always use crafting patterns to cut out your flowers to give it a more consistent look. 

Supplies:

3-4 sheets of crafting paper

1 jar of Mod Podge (optional)

1 foam brush

1 bottle of quick drying glue

Scissors

Crafting or stamping ink

Natural ribbon

Dried grape vine wreath

Hot glue gun

Directions:

Step 1: If you are shaping your flowers by hand, use scissors to cut circles and floral patterns out of our crafting paper in various sizes, taking care to have 2-3 sizes to allow for layering the flowers. If you are going for a more uniform look, use your pattern punch to create the flowers. 

Step 2:  To give your flowers a vintage feel, dab crafting ink to the edges of the flowers by either directly placing the edges of the paper to the ink pad or using a brush to apply the ink. And then allow the ink to dry.

Step 3:  If you are using Mod Podge to give your flowers a satin or antique finish, apply it once you have cut your flowers and than allow it to dry. (I opted for a matte finish, and skipped this step). 

Step 4: To create the cupped floral look, cut the larger floral shape down the center, stopping at the center of the paper. And then use quick drying crafting glue to secure the edges together, by overlapping the folds to create a cone shape. Repeat this process for the number of flowers you wish to have a cupped look. 

Step 5: Use the smaller floral cuts to layer atop the larger floral shapes to give your flowers a layered look. Secure the smaller pieces to the top of the larger pieces using quick drying crafting glue. And then allow the flowers to dry before placing them on the wreath.

Step 6: While the flowers are drying, create your ribbon and place it on the wreath so you can place the flowers around the ribbon. 

Step 7: Once the ribbon is in place, use a hot glue gun to secure your flowers to the wreath until you have full floral coverage across the vine wreath. And then hang on your front door one it is dry.
