Paper flower wreath
- toilet paper tubes (I used 5)
- toilet paper
- polystyrene (or Styrofoam circle) ( White Styrofoam Round Circle Craft set of 13)
- glue gun
- hot glue sticks
- Gather your paper tubes and start making the flowers following the directions in this tutorial. You can cut different lengths and widths for the “petals”.
- If you use polystyrene to make your circle, start by placing a large bowl or plate on the polystyrene and cut all the way around with a cutter. On the resulting circle, place a medium bowl and cut all the way around it.
- Take your burlap fabric and fold it in 4 to form a long strip of fabric. You may need to use 2 strips, depending on the size of your circle and the length of your burlap.
- Pin one end of the burlap fabric strip to the back of your polystyrene circle and start wrapping the fabric around the circle. When done, pin in place.
- Hot glue the blooms to the wreath base and enjoy your DIY paper flower wreath!
