Hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend! I’m so happy to have Allison from House of Hepworths here today for Day 11 of our series! She is sharing a fabulous wreath tutorial! I love how this turned out, definitely pinning this one for later :)

 

Hey everyone! I’m Allison from House of Hepworths. I’m so excited that Taryn invited me to be a part of this fun 14 Days of Love Valentine’s series!

Today I’m going to show you how to make the cutest Paper Rose Wreath. Red Roses are symbolic of LOVE, so this wreath is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

To make this wreath, you will need:

*8 inch wreath form
* red crepe paper
* 13 sheets of 12″x12″ red cardstock
* hot glue
* scissors

Start by gluing the end of your crepe paper to your wreath form.

Wrap the crepe paper around and around the form, until the wreath form is completely covered.

I wrapped my wreath twice so none of the green wreath showed through. To times around with the crepe paper gave it nice coverage.

Once your wreath form is wrapped, it’s time to start making your roses. Each 12″x12″ cardstock will make 4 flowers, and you will need approximately 13 pieces of cardstock worth (52 roses).

To make the Paper Roses, I’ve given a really detailed tutorial over on my blog.


Once your roses are assembled, start gluing them to your wreath using Hot Glue.

Use a liberal amount of hot glue, and hold each flower for several seconds to make sure the glue dries before you let go.

Put the roses close together. Work your way around the wreath. Here’s what it should look like when you are half way done.

After lots of gluing, you will end up with a beautiful wreath!

I LOVE how the shadows inside the roses really add depth to the wreath and give it a rich feel.

I hung the wreath inside a round mirror. Decorated around it is a simple pretty little Valentine’s vignette.
