Creating a Beautiful Paper Flower Wreath

Paper Flower

As April comes to an end and May is almost at our doorstep, I wanted to share my paper flower wreath with you.
Wreath customs in Europe have survived over many centuries. The observance of May Day in England, for example, includes Maypole festivities. A race by young unmarried men to climb to the top of the Maypole to capture the May Day wreath perched at the top of the pole. The winner of this contest would wear the wreath as his crown, and would be recognized as the May Day King for the rest of the holiday.
Though my wreath is not perched at the top of a pole, it is hung on a wreath stand and displayed in my front foyer. It’s just in time for the lovely month of May.

I started my project with a paper flower kit (I purchased online) and separated all the pieces on my laundry room counter.

I proceeded to make the tissue paper flowers.

After many hours assembling the tissue paper flowers with a gentle touch and a lot of care, I finished the bouquet. How pretty it looks! Now, I could attach these flowers to a wreath.

This vine wreath was left over from another project.

I started to attach the wire stems of the flowers onto the vine wreath. I did not need any glue. The wire held the tissue paper flowers to the wreath with no problem.

I worked my way around the wreath until all the flowers were attached.

I secured this pretty check bow to the wreath and hung it on my wreath stand.

I placed this small iron bird in a nest and propped it on top of the wreath. Just last weekend, my youngest son (Joey) found this bird outside, laying on the ground. He thought I could use it in one of my displays and he was right. It’s a little treasure that worked perfectly!

The wreath looks lovely in my foyer and compliments the other elements in the space wonderfully. It’s a welcoming item that’s easy to make and pretty to look at.
