We love wreath projects because they are an easy way to add a festive touch to your home decor. You can create seasonal wreaths that pay homage to a holiday or time of year, or you can create non-seasonal wreaths that inspire your creative side. Wreaths are easy to keep for years to come, and you can switch them out to refresh your home decor throughout the year. The beauty of creating a DIY wreath is being able to add personal elements that reflect your individual style. Our boho botanical paper wreath is featured in the January 2017 special edition issue of Mollie Makes Creativity, and it is beautiful for anyone wanting to indulge in their wild side!
Picking Out your Materials
To make this wreath you will need a wreath form and some pretty papers of your choice. We decided to make our own wreath form using paper covered floral wire. This way, you can easily customize the size of your wreath. Wrap the wire about 5 times to create the wreath form, and then pick out your papers. We used a mix of text weight metallic papers from Paper-Papers.com and Paper Source. Find links for the papers in Shop this Project below! Once you have your materials, download our templates. Use the PDF version if you are cutting by hand, or the SVG version to use with a cutting machine.
Assembling your Botanical Wreath
Just like with all homemade wreaths, our boho botanical paper wreath is a design that you can personalize in so many different ways. Fill out the wreath however you’d like! Generally, our main suggestion is to make sure that you build out the wreath so that the details are pointing in the same direction, whether that’s clockwise or counter-clockwise. Use your hot glue gun to attach the bits and pieces, and feature any color palette that matches your style or home decor. Have fun with it!
The Mollie Makes Creativity special issue will be available January 21, 2017. In the issue you will also find a little interview in the Tea and Chat section where I talk a little bit about my beginnings in the world of DIY. Browse more wreath projects in the DIY Home Decor section, like our gorgeous magnolia leaf wreath or all white winter wreath.
