paper wreath - end product

Items needed:

  • Coloured Construction Paper
  • Stapler and stabler bullets
  • Cardboard or thick paper
  • Glue
  • Hole puncher
  • String


  1. To make the leaves, cut out from construction coloured paper to your desired leaf size.
  2. Fold each leaf in half lengthwise, and then fold one side back slightly, so that there is an indent created.
  3. To make the wreath, cut out two hoops from thick paper or cardboard.
  4. Make a small fold at one side of the leaf towards the base, to make it slightly bent.
  5. Staple the leaf to the hoop at the indent area.
  6. Staple more leaves, making sure that each subsequent leaf covers the staple of the previous one.
  7. Glue the second hoop over the staples when finished, punch a hole, tie it up and there you have it – your own paper wreath!
