Wreaths for your door can be incredibly expensive! Even buying silk flowers to make a wreath can really run up a bill. But have you ever tried using paper?
How to make a paper wreath:
Below, I’m sharing 10 great tutorial that will tell you exactly how to make a paper wreath. You’ll find a wide variety of ways that will help you learn just how to make the exact one you want.
But first, some tips!
What kind of paper can I use to make a wreath?
You can make your wreath out of pretty much any paper available! I’ve even made one out of plain white copy paper!
I don’t have an actual tutorial for this wreath, but I’ve been missing it, so I may make another one soon. If I do, I’ll be sure to share with you how I did it!
But here are some more papers you can use:
Do I need a wreath form?
Each wreath below has detailed instruction on how to make it. You’ll see which ones use what kind of wreath form. But below are some basic forms that are good for making wreaths:
"I love boxwood wreaths and do have a few of them hanging around my house that I picked up last January in the clearance area of Lowes. Boxwood wreaths tend to dry out and are expensive.
The idea to make one using card stock popped into my head when I was organizing my decorative paper drawer. I figured it would be affordable and not dry out. Having a Silhouette – made my idea into a reality in a few hours."
"I love succulents, but I just can't keep them alive. The best way I've found to bring succulents into my home without feeling guilty is to go faux! Paper succulents are surprisingly easy to make, and you can create so many things with them. This wreath was made with only four different succulent patterns cut out of multiple shades of green paper."
This year for Derby I decided to make one simple decoration. It was so easy I did it in about an hour. The trick was buying a “kit” that had the paper roses pre-cut out, all I had to do was assemble them. I decided to stick with Black, White & Red to match the other Kentucky Derby decorations that I have."
"I sure love making new wreaths for my front door. My goal is to always update the wreath for the porch at the beginning of each month. If I’m super productive, I actually make a new one for each month, with the goal of never using the same wreath twice. "
"I found a bunch of paper doilies at the thrift store a few months ago and was trying to think of what I would use them for and came up with a rolled paper doily wreath! I’ve been wanting to make a rolled paper wreath for some time now and here was my opportunity."
"Do you need something colorful for your front door? Try our crepe paper wreath! It is easy to make and perfect for spring. Grab some streamers and make a cute addition to your door! You will love the results."
I hope you got some great ideas and learned what you need to make a beautiful wreath. I love making them and having them to decorate my front door.
And if I can save a lot of money, then all the better. I’m all for decorating on the cheap!
