Featuring a sunset-inspired palette of shimmery colors, this paper flower tropical head wreath is the perfect accessory for a summer party. And you can even make some beautiful decor with the template, too! Just use more vine wire, flowers, and greenery to create a full wreath you can hang up — or a garland to lay out on a table.
Since there are quite a few narrow cuts to make, we recommend using a cutting machine for this DIY project. Or you can always cut your flower pieces by hand.
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.
