Wreath is the Word!
As seen yesterday on Portland Today, Lia walked you through one of her favorite fall wreath how-to’s. Taken from our original post on 7 Ways to use Paper Leaves for Fall Decor, this paper leaf wreath is the perfect project to welcome the change of seasons. Wreaths are a gorgeous seasonal accent for your home, both indoors or out. Use a wreath on your front door to welcome guests or hang one in your living space to add a cozy, rustic touch.
This is a perfect project to try on your new Cricut Maker! Simply download our SVG templates or use our PDF file to cut out by hand. We used Frosted Ruby, Antique Gold, and Frosted Gold from Paper Papers for our leaves, but feel free to mix up your color palette to give your wreath a little more personality. Use scissors to crease individual leaves along the fold lines. Adhere your finished leaves to a store-bought branch wreath using low-temp hot glue. You can even add some acorns or pinecones for additional fall flair!

is this cardstock paper or a lighter weight?
We used text weight frosted weight for this project- it’s much easier to work with and shape the leaves.
Can you tell me where to get the little rocking bird?
Hi Debbie! We found it at West Elm several years ago.
I love your SVG files, all my friends rave about my metallic paper flowers. I was wondering what size wreathes you used as your base.
Also, do you ever have public events at your offices in Portland?
Maureen (your neighbor in Vancouver)
That’s so great to hear, Maureen! We usually use wreath forms that are 12-14″, but go smaller or larger depending on the use (table top vs. front door). We haven’t had any public events here but would love to host a gathering sometime! We’ll keep you posted 🙂
