Another pretty, Crepe Paper Flower Wreath to DIY

I have a flower-ful lovely for you today. You may remember the pretty-in-pink Crepe Paper Flower Wreath from a few weeks ago. Designer and photographer Dina had so much fun making her Crepe Paper Flower Wreath that she made a second wreath, changing it up with texture and rich jewel tones. I’d have a hard time choosing between these two wreaths! I love that they’re both easy enough, so whichever one is your favorite, you can DIY your own Crepe Paper Flower Wreath.

Beautiful! Love these colors. DIY Crepe Paper Flower Wreath on CraftsnCoffee.com.

Here’s Dina’s original, pink Crepe Paper Flower Wreath.

And here are both wreaths, side-by-side. They’re both beautiful, and I won’t ask you to pick between the two. That’s too hard to do!

These are both beautiful wreaths! Easy DIY on CraftsnCoffee.com.

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

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 14” wreath
  • Crepe paper: Lime green, medium green, lavender, violet, light blue, medium blue, and black
  • Chenille stem
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Tools needed: Scissors; chopstick
These are gorgeous crepe paper flowers! CraftsnCoffee.com.

No matter which color palette you choose, your flowers will be beautiful!

To make a Jewel-Tone Crepe Paper Flower Wreath:

1. Cover the wreath with crepe paper squares:

  • Cut 2” squares from the violet, medium blue, and medium green crepe paper.
  • Place a square on the wreath, position the chopstick over the center of the square, and push the chopstick about ½” deep into the wreath.
  • STYROFOAM Brand Foam has an excellent grip, and the wreath will hold the crepe paper square in place.
  • Continue to insert the crepe paper squares into the wreath, alternating colors as you go, till the wreath is covered.

Cut the crepe paper into 2″ squares, and tuck the squares into the wreath of STYROFOAM Brand Foam.

2. Make your flowers, mixing and matching the light and dark tones. Dina recommends following this tutorial. For her wreath, Dina used the following sizes, and you can always use more:

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

Use several colors for each flower.

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

Once you’ve arranged your flowers, glue them in place. If you like, you can always add more flowers!

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.

You can use this same technique with squares of fabric, too, like I did when I made my Easy, Red, White & Blue Bandanna Wreath.

Nothing hard about this wreath -- it uses bandanas and a Styrofoam brand wreath. Super easy and super cute! CraftsnCoffee.com

This Quick & Easy Bandanna Wreath is perfect for kids to make, too.

Here’s another favorite summertime wreath, also made with fabric squares – Patty Schaffer’s Watermelon Wreath.

A sweet summertime wreath! On my "must-make" summer craft list! CraftsnCoffee.com

Seeing Dina’s two, Crepe Paper Flower Wreaths side-by-side reminds me of this tree I saw past weekend.

These are both beautiful wreaths! Easy DIY on CraftsnCoffee.com.

I saw this tree while I was running errands Saturday morning, and I had to pull over and photograph it. Amazing, isn’t it?

Wow, what an amazing tree! CraftsnCoffee.com.

Mother Nature had a little help, when someone grafted together these two flowering trees.

Mother’s Day is Sunday, and if you’re still debating about what to DIY for mom, be sure to check out the 35+, DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas I shared last week. Some of the gift ideas are super easy and super-fast, so you still have time to DIY mom a special gift.

Have a wonderful weekend, and happy crafting!
