Using Paper Mums to Make This Gorgeous Fall Wreath

DIY Paper Mum Fall Wreath To welcome in Fall this year, I planned to make a lush flower wreath for my front door. I chose the paper in antique gold, coppers, plums and purples (ruby & punch), all in a metallic finish text weight paper from It was after I made the fall mum wreath that I thought maybe I need to make two. . . one for the front door and another for a centerpiece. I am loving this wreath filled with tall pillar candles in the center of my dinner table. This wreath is easy to make, much simpler than it looks. If you have a Silhouette cutter, you can import the pattern for your cuts there. Once all the flowers and leaves are trimmed assembling the blooms is quite simple. You can refer to another version of this flower’s tutorial in this post to see how they are made with stems. I used a 12 inch wreath form that I purchased at Michaels for the 24 finished flower and 24 leaves. The results are stunning! Below is the step-by-step tutorial for the wreath and you can download the mum and leaf template at the end of the post. Enjoy! ~ Lia

    Having made just one mum with you at your handmade flowers class, I know how much work went into this wreath!! The mums are one of my favorite flowers of yours…in fact, I just used one in my caramel apple basket post today (perfect timing!) and linked back this post so that others can see how to make them. :)
