Make a beautiful paper hydrangea wreath for your wall or door.
It is time for a new Fall wreath for the door and me being one who likes to push the color boundaries and traditions, decided to make it in deep plums and purples with a touch of lime. For that color palette, the paper flower of choice must be a hydrangea, right?

To make the 11 flower heads, I used my Cricut Explore to trim the 30 petals per sheet until I had a pile of 750 petals. For the leaves, I cut 3 sheets of Botanic and Fairway and 2 of Emerald to make 48 leaves. If you do not have a cutting machine, I have also included a PDF template that you can use to hand cut the petals and leaves. Once all is cut you can follow the tutorial below to assemble your wreath. Check out my other handcrafted lifestyle projects at liagriffith.com. Enjoy! ~ Lia
