    How to Make a Leafy Wreath from Card Stock, stampin up craft, DIY paper wreath, leaf wreath, natalie bradley

    I’m a little obsessed with handmade wreaths, and I really enjoy changing them out in my home from time to time. In our kitchen, we have a large space over the sink where I like a fabulous splash of color, and I change out what I hang here with the time of year. For spring, I thought this sunny yellow card stock wreath is perfect! Our walls are turquoise, but we have a lot of yellow, orange, and gold accents in our kitchen balanced by a good amount of white with the bead board on 3/4 of our kitchen walls.

    This is one of the easiest wreaths I’ve ever made, taking no time at all to make! Don’t you love it when craft projects surprise you?

    Here’s what you need:

    • Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue
    • Wreath form in desired size
    • Scrap fabric to wrap your wreath form to hide styrofoam
    • plus the following Stampin’ Up products that I used-
     How to make: 
    1. Fold your paper into the desired size for your leaves. For a 12″x12″ paper, I ended up getting about 10-12 leaves out of each sheet. So that means I would have folded it 3 different times using the bone folder.
    2. Use a pencil and lightly sketch out 1/2 of a leaf.
    3. Cut out the leaf (on folded paper).
    4. Repeat as many times as necessary.
    5. Hot glue leaves to wreath formThe colors below are weird because I made this at night and snapped the pictures inside quickly, but I wanted you to see the back of the wreath.

    Here’s a few different places I considered placing the wreath, also I ended up placing it above the sink in the kitchen in the end.
