papercut floral tropical head wreath

Tropical Sunset

Some of you may remember the free version of this project we made years ago. While similar, this paper flower tropical wreath is an updated design with more intricate stamen for the hibiscus flowers. And the tutorial is more detailed as well.

When you’re ready to get started, everything we used for this paper craft is linked below. You’ll notice we used a mix of oranges and pinks to make our head wreath resemble a dreamy tropical sunset. But you can always use whatever colors you prefer.

We’d love to see your version — and what you wear it for! So once you’ve made this pretty floral crown, be sure to share it with us on our crafter’s community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tip: We recommend using a cutting machine with a fresh mat and blade due to the delicate nature of the stamen pieces.
