Once Christmas is over it can be really difficult for me to embrace the cold temperatures and endless gray skies. If you’re familiar with The House That Lars Built at all, you know full-well how much we need color in our lives! We decided we couldn’t wait any longer, so we’re willing Spring to come a little faster with this Pink Paper Blossom Wreath! Made of delicate paper blossoms in shades of pink and yellow, it’s also the perfect way to kick off your Valentine’s Day celebrations! A simple craft to make in a few hours, this beauty is sure to lift your shivering spirits! A smaller version would also make an adorable crown!

Pink Paper Blossom Wreath
- Crepe Paper is shades of pink, peach, yellow, and green
- Craft wire
- 3, 18-inch Floral wire stems
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue gun
- Acrylic paint and paintbrush, optional
- Begin by cutting a 4-inch piece of wire and folding it in half.
- Cut a 1-inch by .5-inch piece of crepe paper and fringe the long edge.
- Wrap the fringed piece around the folded tip of the wire and secure with glue.
- Using the template, cut out 6 petals and glue around the base of the fringed piece.
- Cut a .25-inch by 1-inch piece of green crepe paper and wrap that around the base of the flower and secure with glue.
- Cut 1/2-inch thick strips of green paper, perpendicular to the grain and stretch out to remove ridges.
- Wrap the wire with the crepe paper to cover completely.
- Repeat to make 35-40 blossoms
- Take your 3 floral wire stems and twist the ends together to make a large wire circle.
- Wrap all of your paper blossoms onto the wire circle, positioning them inwards and out to give some movement to the wreath. Voila!
