Spring wreath idea: DIY a pretty-in-pink, Crepe Paper Flower Wreath

It’s the first week of spring – the perfect time to share with you this bright & dazzling, Crepe Paper Flower Wreath. I’ve introduced you to my friend Dina before – she is the photographer behind some of the lovely photos you see on Crafts ‘n Coffee.  When I tell you that Dina designed today’s Crepe Paper Flower Wreath, you will not be surprised that it’s this gorgeous! Let me show you more!

Dina used a springtime combination of colors in shades of pink and yellow.

Isn’t it beautiful? I have the supplies you’ll need below, and you’ll also want to follow this excellent, DIY flower tutorial at Oh My Handmade. Here are the details.

Don’t they make you smile?

To make a Crepe Paper Flower Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 14” wreath
  • Crepe paper rolls in assorted colors (Dina used pastel pink, bright pink, pastel yellow, yellow, orange and black)
  • Chenille stem
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Tools needed: Scissors

To make a Crepe Paper Flower Wreath:

1. Wrap the wreath in crepe paper.

Wrap it up!

2. Make your flowers. Dina recommends following this tutorial. For her wreath, Dina used the following sizes:

  • Three, 4” – 4-1/2” flowers
  • Three, 3” – 3-1/2” flowers
  • Two, 2-1/2” flowers

She suggests you make as many as you’d like – you can always cover the entire wreath in flowers! Also, Dina layered together pastel pink and bright pink; pastel yellow and yellow; and yellow and orange. Again, you can change up these colors to suit your own style.

The centers are made with yellow, black, and hot pink crepe paper.

3. Arrange your flowers on the wreath. When you like the arrangement, glue them in place.

4. Twist together the ends of a 3” length of chenille stem. Insert and glue the stem into the back of the wreath for a hanger. Let the glue dry before hanging the wreath.

The wreath is like a springtime garden party!

It is so pretty! Of course, it’s not going to hold up in the rain, so you might want to display this wreath inside only. Dina has more to share, and here’s a sneak from next Tuesday’s post. See you then!

I wish you and your family a wonderful Easter weekend.

Happy springtime crafting!

    Pretty spring wreath! Love the colors and texture. This is strictly an indoor wreath. Rain or water will cause it to fade. Happy Easter! Happy Spring!

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you, Angie, and you are right – keep this pretty wreath inside. Rain will also make the crepe paper run. Happy Easter and spring to you, too! Xo, Sharon

    That is so cute. I need the crepe paper to do this. I am working on a project for my mom’s Red Hat group and will try to get some crepe paper to add the crocheted flowers w/suckers to this. Hmmm will share when I get it finished.

    • Sharon says:

      Ooh, that sounds like a really cute idea! I’d love to see the wreath when it’s done. If you find red & purple crepe paper, you can make corsages for the next meeting. Happy Easter, Lisa.
