Go Green and Go Home!

Green is the new black! Here at Lia Griffith, green is our favorite color this season. Bring the outdoors in with this papercut grass wreath – a fresh, fast and fun project that yields impressive results. Though it might look extremely intricate and time consuming, you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to make with the assistance of a paper cutting machine. Our all-time favorite cutting machines are made by Cricut. This wreath is a beautiful accent to surfaces both vertical and horizontal. Whether its hung on a door to welcome your house guests or set atop a table to accent a dish of candy, we think you’ll fall in love with this lush papercut grass wreath.

  • Mod Podge

Steps

  1. Gather the tools and materials listed above.
  2. Cover the foam circle with tissue paper using Mod Podge.

  4. Continue gluing the grass around the foam circle. Alternate the shades of green until the wreath is complete.

Tips

We found our metallic paper from Paper-Papers. It’s a good idea to use multiple shades of green paper to add even more dimension to your wreath – we used both Fairway and Botanic. Our design yields 2 grass pieces per 8.5×11 sheet of paper, and we cut around 50 sheets to fill this 14″ wreath. For tissue paper, shop Lia Griffith

If hanging your wreath on a wall or a door, use a piece of string or twine. If you don’t have access to a paper cutting machine, do not fret! This project can also be cut by hand. Though it’ll take a bit more time cutting everything with a scissor, it’s still an incredibly simple and stress-free process.
