What you need to make DIY paper roses:

  1. The template above, printed on paper
  2. Colored cardstock in rose and leaf colors (you can print the template directly on this paper, however you will have the outline to deal with)
  3. Pencil
  4. Burlap ribbon
  5. Round base for the wreath (this one has been made out of cardstock)
  6. Tacky glue
  7. Hot glue gun
  8. Scissors

 

How to make DIY paper roses:

1. Use the template to cut out your DIY paper roses parts.

 

2. Use a small paint brush or any round object to curve the outer edges of the petals.

 

3. Leave the single and double petal shapes flat – don’t curve those!

 

4. Take each of the pieces one by one and apply tacky glue on one side of it, glue to the opposite side.

 

5. Now take the two 5-petal pieces and glue them together, one on the top of the other.

 

6. Continue doing this with the other petals, arranging it so that it looks nice as you go along.

 

Do this in order of the amounts of petals – starting with the largest on the bottom, and finishing with a single closed petal at the top.

 

7. Create 4 or 5 more of these DIY paper roses in different sizes for the wreath. You can shrink the size of the template when you print, in your printer options. Cut jagged edges on the roses if you’d like.

 

8. Trace and cut out the leaf patterns on green cardstock paper. Create vertical and diagonal creases on the leaves to give them a 3d look.

 

9. Apply hot glue on the open end of your burlap ribbon and attach it to the wreath form. Start to wrap the burlap strip around the form, gluing as you go.

 

Keep wrapping the burlap until the whole base is covered.

 

10. Glue the paper roses onto your wreath base, arranging them how you like it. An asymmetrical arrangement using an odd amount of roses (such as 3 or 5) looks great!

 

11. Glue the leaves between the flowers, behind them, onto the edges of the wreath form.

 

12. Once you are satisfied with the way your wreath looks, attach a hanging mechanism on the back and you’re ready to hang it! You can use anything, but my favorite is a ribbon looped through the wreath.
