It’s that time of the month again! For freebies… duh. Each first Friday of the month we are giving out a free printable item. This month, we have a Paper Flower Wreath template to kick off fall! Freebie includes patterned paper template and how-to instructions.

Now it’s time to transform those gorgeous paper flowers into a festive fall wreath!
We used a cardboard cake board for the base of our wreath. Just trace a smaller circle in the center of the cardboard and cut out using an X-ACTO Knife or craft knife. Alternatively, you could purchase a wreath form, or cut one out of foam core or even heavy poster board.
Make – LOTS – of paper flowers in advance. Did I say make lots? We actually had to go back and make more because we ran out. We made about 75% of our flowers out of an old college textbook that belonged to my mother – it was on its way to the recycle bin anyway, why not repurpose it first? Where was I? Oh, yes, warm up that Hot Glue Gun! Simply affix those little flowers, one by one, onto the base of your choice.
Lastly, add a cute black ribbon, and hang on front door or in the house for decoration!
Stop by next month for another freebie!
