Paper Rose Wreath

Hi stampers!  Today, I’m sharing my Christmas wreath with you!  It is made out of over 200 paper roses (I lost count)!  This project took awhile to complete, but the end result was SO WORTH IT!  I’ve created a video (below) to show you how to make the paper roses.  The original idea came from browsing Pinterest and here’s a link to the blog of the very talented lady (Sandi) who posted the tutorial I followed.  Here’s an up-close photo of the roses – just beautiful!

It’s a fairly simple project, it just takes some time, effort, and patience to complete.  I think in total it took me around 8-10 hours.  All of the paper roses are hot-glued to the front of a styrofoam wreath (no need to add roses to the back side).  My suggestion is to make 30-40 roses per day and be sure to glue them to the wreath the same day.  Why?  Because once you start to see your wreath taking shape you will definitely want to keep going and finish the project!  And, all the effort will last you for years to come.  Not to mention bragging rights ;).

Here’s the video:

  1. @gorma078 It's the Bigz Clear Circle Die by Sizzix which is about 3.75" in diameter. If you freehand cut the circle, cut an 8.5 x 11" piece of paper into 4 pieces and cut 1 circle out of each piece.

  2. Perfect! I tried a circle cutter (which did not work) and then ended up with a punch. Your wreath is beautiful! I am doing my own and then possibly make them for center pieces at my wedding. I will post mine so you can see! Thanks again for the tutorial!

  3. wow this is stunning…but all that rolling into roses! I liked the idea one other gal said…a pomander…or maybe a little table top bonsai idea…LOL I started just putting staight punched out flowers on a styro ball with straight pins and didn't even finish it! Just lovely!
