Love easy crafts that you can display around your home? I created, with the help of my kids, this ombre paper wreath, in less than 30 minutes. It’s an easy weekend DIY project that you can customize to any color scheme or for any holiday.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies


Wood Wreath Form (mine is 12″)


Oval Punch (mine is 2″)


Hot Glue

Step 2: Punch and Fold Your Leaves

Use your oval punch to cut out your leaves. I chose papers in bright blues and purples, but this would work so well with any color scheme you had in mind.

Fold your “leaves” in half to give your wreath some dimension.

Step 3: Attach Leaves to Wreath

Begin gluing your leaves onto your wreath form. I alternated rows of three leaves and rows of two leaves (see below). I used hot glue because it dries so quickly, but you can use whatever you have on hand!

Step 4: Hang and Admire!

I love the bright colors and subtle texture of the paper in this wreath. I plan on leaving it up through Fall, but can easily see myself deciding to incorporate it into my holiday decorating, as well. Be sure to follow burlap+blue on Pinterest for lots more crafts and DIY inspiration!
