Download and print the wreath template to create the stencils. The template includes a leaf and a flower template in two sizes, 6" and 8".  

Using the solid-color paper:

  • Cut 4 leaves

  • Cut 6 flowers in varying sizes

2. Create the Frame

Purchase a wreath form at your local craft store, or raid the recycling bin for some cardboard to up-cycle. We used an old delivery box! Wrap the frame with paper ribbon and glue the edges to secure into place.

3. Assemble the Wreath

First start on the table, playing with the arrangement of flowers and leaves until you are satisfied with the layout. Then, piece by piece, start glueing the flowers directly to the wreath ring. Start with the largest flower, then add smaller flowers, leaves, and end with smaller flowers. Have fun and get creative in this process.




This is just one of many ways to arrange these paper flowers to create your own beautiful spring home decor! Copy Kirby-Jay's asymmetrical style or fill the entire ring with Daisy Style and Sunflower Style paper flowers! Pair with a matching bouquet and gift topper for a cohesive spring vibe at your next baby shower or wedding.
