Overall, the meaning of orchids can vary depending on the culture and context, but they are generally seen as a symbol of beauty, elegance, love, and admiration so why not make a beautiful paper wreath to remind yourself of these things daily.

Mobile users turn your phone or watch the YouTube video here.

Materials and Tools Needed:

  • Cricut, Silhouette or other cutting machine - I used both my Cricut Maker and my Cricut Explore to cut out my pieces.
  • Card stock paper - I am using 80 lb Bazzil paper (use code KELSS53) for my orchid and flower parts and for the green leaves I used Michaels 65 lb cardstock.
  • Hot glue gun and sticks - I am using a Surebonder glue gun and glue sticks from the Dollar Tree
  • Craft Glue - You can definitely just use hot glue but for my orchids I used Bearly Arts and you can save with code DINOMAMA
  • Wreath ring - I used a 14 inch wire wreath ring from the Dollar Tree. You can shop them here.
  • Optional: paper flower tools - I don't have these or use them but if you're looking for them here they are!

Cricut Design Space Upload

Mentioned before this is already sized for the 14 inch wreath ring, so begin by resizing if you need to. You can send this right over to your cutting machine, however, if you want to save some space on your paper you can ungroup and rearrange the leaves and then attach to fit the size paper you are using. This is an easier way than moving them within the mat selection portion of the design.

Assembly of the Paper Orchid Flower Wreath

Start by grouping your leaves into piles of three and alternating colors. I actually didn't end up using all of my leaves and had extra but this will depend on your spacing and the look you're going for!

Next, I grabbed my hot glue gun and started attaching my leaves to the wire ring. I only attached mostly on the sides and the end, this is because you want to be able to slide the longer leaves in later.

I worked from left to right around the ring, slightly overlapping at the ends. For the last row, you will place this under the first row we had placed so it looks continuous.

On to assembling the orchids, start by rounding the petals with your fingers or your flower tools. I used my fingers on this go! Then I glued these two pieces together with the three prong looking one in the back.

Next, I assembled the center, start by bending it slightly in the middle and then attach the small stem part to the top (these fit together perfectly). Attach the small rectangle looking piece to the middle of this with some craft glue. Finally, the U shaped piece should only be glued at the bottom and the top parts can be bend out away from the center slightly. This will be glued down towards the bottom.

Then with a small strip of glue in the middle, I attached this center piece to the center of my orchid petals. Repeat with all of your orchids.

shaping small filler paper flowers

For the small flowers, I slightly bent the petals in towards the center. You can color the centers with alcohol ink, colored pencil, or even sequins.

For the longer leaves with the needles, I slightly bent them in half to make them more 3D.

Now we can attach our orchids with some hot glue, I kept them in a curved row on one side.

adding filler leaves to a paper wreath

Next, I added in my longer needle like leaves, I pushed these in under my base leaf layer and under the orchids. I did them pretty evenly spaced and on opposite sides (inner/outer) around the wreath.

To finish the wreath, I used my hot glue to place the small filler flowers throughout the project!
