I finally got my hands on the Cricut Giant Flowers Cartridge, and had myself a great time! There are tons of ways to use these paper flowers in decor. I opted to make this festive fall flower wreath.
Following the instructions that came with the cartridge, I made the Lotus, Zinnia and Rose in oranges and purple Core’dinations paper.
I wanted a flat wreath form, so I made one using cardboard. I do this a lot. Just find something round in the size you want your wreath, and trace it onto cardboard using a sharpie.
I like to cut two pieces of cardboard per wreath form and tape them together…
Once I made the wreath form, I began laying out my flowers until I had the wreath full. I glued the flowers into place with hot glue.
***TIP: I also used got glue for making the flowers. Gluing each petal into place as they are added keeps them from falling out all over the place as you continue building the flowers.
Before gluing the last flower into place, I added a loop of burlap ribbon for hanging the wreath.
Although it was simple, it did take some time. Now I have an eternal paper flower wreath! Totally worth it.
