Here are the supplies needed to create your own DIY Spring Wreath:
- Several shades of pink cardstock (or color of your choice)
- Paper trimmer
- Hot glue
- Cardboard circle 12″ (cut your own or use cake rounds that are precut!)
- Bakers twine
Step 1: Trim 12×12 paper into 4×4 squares. Use several different shades of paper. For the inner layers you’ll cut smaller squares for small cones. Example: 3×3 squares, etc. You’ll end up making about 80 cones of varying sizes (but mostly the larger 4″x4″ size)
Step 2: Take squares and fold into cone shapes. (I created a youtube tutorial showing you how to make these. It was my first and most amateur video, but you’ll get the idea. 🙂
Step 3: Slowly start gluing on the cones starting in the outer edges and moving inwards. For the ombre effect, you’ll start with the darker shades on the outside with the lighter paper used on the inside.
Keep moving around until you fill in the very center! Now you’ll take a few inches of bakers twine and hot glue a “loop” on the back of the cardboard to hang your wreath.

Love this! I have a quick question, what size squares did you cut in each color?
Thanks so much!
The outer 3 layers were 4×4″ (so 9 per 12×12 sheet ) inside smallers petals were 4×4″. This tutorial has greater detail and might help! http://www.bloominghomestead.com/2013/09/diy-halloween-wreath.html
So pretty! I am so ready for spring 🙂

I am SO ready for spring – I just wish the three feet of snow in my backyard would hurry up and melt already! Your wreath turned out great. Love the colours you chose!
I hear ya! Hopefully Spring will be here soon!
Beautiful wreath, bring on spring!
How much paper did you use & what size is the cardboard?
Probably about 12 (12×12) sheets total. Outer layers were more, I think 3 full pages for the outermost layer, and the white layer was less than 1. My cardboard was about 12″ in diameter. Hope that helps!
What a beautiful eye-catching display! This definitely gets me in the mood for springtime. Just letting you know that I am linking to this tutorial from my website this week if you don’t mind.
Thanks so much!

Thanks for this beautiful idea. I made it and then thought that the same idea in miniature would also make an amazing hanging decoration for our church nursery so I made the paper squares 1 1/2 inch and made the flower double sided. It is so cute. Thanks for the inspiration.
I bet it turned out so cute! I’ve made several variations and even made some felt ones for my daughters nursery that I just adore!

I live in humid Florida, but I’ve been dying to make one of these paper wreaths for my front door – which is covered by a front porch several feet deep. Still, I’m curious if you sprayed the wreath with any kind of polyurethane or clear coat to help it hold up in inclement weather.
Hmmm, I actually didnt and kept mine indoors. I’ve made them out of felt too that might be a better option. I live in Wyoming and I’m sure the wreath wouldn’t survive outdoors lol!
This is lovely! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I have shared your post on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/happinessiscrafting/
My readers will love it 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing!
I was just wondering if you could give me the exact amount of sheets for each colour and the size of the squares for each colour. So you cut the sheets into 9 squares each?
Beautiful flower, by the way. I want to make it for my friend Dalia.
