Paper flower craft is my main passion, and sharing new and interesting paper flower designs gets me totally over-excited! Today I am pleased to be sharing my Fall Spider Mum Wreath, the perfect Fall wreath for a covered front door, mantle or window. The pattern and tutorial for the flower can be found in this earlier post, you can download and then create your own DIY wreath. It’s a surprisingly simple pattern that involves cutting lots of tiny, thin spidery strands into your paper rounds. By layering those rounds together, you begin to form that deep, textured bloom that is perfect for adding to a Fall wreath!
I used metallic paper for this wreath which I love for the way the light bounces off it. Choose colors that you love – in my case, it’s a mix of deep teals and dark reds. Mix the blooms with a bright green paper for the leaves, and your wreath will pop!
If you love paper flower craft take a look at some of my other designs. And if you get to making one of my paper flower designs I would love to see your work! Share pictures with me over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and I will share my favorites. See you there! ~ Lia

I’m curious what the paper colors are? I just love the colors of the example. Thanks.
Hi Laura! I love these colors as well, but this post is nine years old, so, at that point, I was just using paper I found at the craft store, and back then did not link my sources as we do now.
love this w?reath, can you tell me what base and size you used for this wreath
Thank you Shelley! I used a 14″ foam base: https://www.amazon.com/Floracraft-FLOXT14WU-Styrofoam-Extruded-Wreath/dp/B002NHD3Q6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1510008753&sr=8-1&keywords=flora+craft+14%22
I love your work and but I am having a lot of difficulty, I bought an explore air so that I could enjoy creating your flowers and any of the svg files I’ve downloaded won’t import into design space. I’ve been in touch with cricut and they say that they don’t stand over any files which aren’t from their design space, can you suggest what I should do to be able to work with them?
It sounds like you need to unzip the files before you upload them into your Design Space!
You need to unzip files for sure. Then I save the svg file to the desk top and then upload it. It is the only way I can get it to work.
Superb, love this flower. Can see me cutting away into the night but will be worth it. Been working on sunflowers tonight, didn’t have pearlescent metallic papers but they’ll still be pretty. Have to make do with what I can find in this town (Grand Junction) which is quite limited, Serves me right for not having foresight to order papers from Paper-papers. DUH! Think when I make the spider mums will definitely make with metallic papers. For all that work of cutting out want them to be pretty. Did find some metallic papers at our Walmart but not right colors. You’d think with 3 different craft stores one of them would have variety of metallic papers. No sense any more grumbling, will enjoy making this flower when I get correct papers. Have great weekend
I have also had a really hard time finding metallic paper at craft supply stores, that is why I was so excited when I found Paper-Papers.
Hi, where do you source your cardstock/paper?
For this post I actually used text weigh paper from Paper-Papers. When I use cardstock I would normally look either at My Minds Eye or Paper-Papers.
I just love the look of this wreath. I downloaded the svg file and and tried to upload into cricket but was told that it included text and was not supported. The upload process has changed since I last uploaded an image, is there something I am not doing right? Thank You for your beautiful Inspiration
It has some instruction text on it that you will hide before cutting. I just updated the file for you though with an outlined text so it should go smoothly. 😉
