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. Of course we have also included a printable template if you want to cut this wreath by hand.
Go Green or Go Home!
Here at Lia Griffith, green is our favorite color this season. This handmade 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.
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Paint Brush
- Foam Wreath — 14″
- Green Frosted Paper (approx. 50 sheets)
- Green Tissue Paper
- Mod Podge
- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Cover the foam circle with tissue paper using Mod Podge.
- Cut the grass according to the template notes using scissors or a cutting machine, then wrap each piece around the foam circle and glue into place.
- Continue gluing the grass around the foam circle. Alternate the shades of green until the wreath is complete.
It’s a good idea to use multiple shades of green paper to add even more dimension to your wreath. We initially used both Fairway and Botanic from PaperPapers, but Botanic has since been discontinued. A good replacement for that shade is color #2 from our frosted paper Conifer pack. Our design yields two grass pieces per 8.5×11 sheet of paper, and we cut around 50 sheets to fill this 14″ wreath.
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 process.
