DIY Paper Boxwood Wreath for Spring – Lia Griffith

Good morning! We are feeling particularly Spring-like after the Easter weekend and even though there is still a little chill in the air here in Portland, Oregon the streets are filled with the color of cherry blossom, tulips and daffodils. We can’t help but feel a twinkle of joy! Today we want to share our DIY paper boxwood wreath with you. We received one of these versatile Floracraft® Make It:Fun® foam wreaths from Make It Fun Crafts and wanted to create something that could be used all year round, something that could be tweaked, altered to and added to for any occasion and we think this pretty green wreath fits the bill perfectly. The varying shades of metallic green make this wreath beautiful enough to stand alone, or, using any one of my previous paper flower patterns you could add details to suit your occasion. How about adding some bright paper ranunculus blooms to the mix, or dot a few of our classic white Gardenias around the wreath to use as a unique DIY wedding table centerpiece? As long as you attach any details using floral wire rather than glue, you can change up your DIY paper boxwood wreath time and time again. This tutorial uses a 14″ foam wreath from Floracraft® , brown string and three shades of metallic papers (Fairway, Botanic and Lime Satin) which can be found at paper-papers. We used our cricut cutting machine to cut 60 of each shade of leaf but I have added a PDF file as well for those of you who plan to cut by hand! Enjoy, and happy Spring! ~ Lia
