Painted Paper Wreath | Beautiful DIY Holiday Decor

Hello All!

I am bringing out the paper for this project.  Paper is an amazing medium to work with. It is versatile, inexpensive and easy to obtain.  I have realized that I love creating wreaths.  Last year I made a paper wreath created from book pages. Today I am going to show you how to make a wreath of paper circles, paint and hot-glue. White and Gold look great all year long and especially during the holidays.

Here I what I used to create this little beauty.

  • Wreath template
  • Paper Circles
  • Gold Craft Paint
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Scissors

Supplies for wreath

My first step was to line a layer of white circles on the wreath base. I attached them with hot-glue.  Then, I created a gold wash with gold paint and water. I applied the gold wash on the part of each paper circle.

Once I painted about 70 circles it was time to make little cones. With scissors, I cut a line in the center of each paper circle. I folded one side of  the cut paper on top of the other side to create a cone. I attached the cones with hot-glue.

After I created about 40 of these cones it was time to work on the layout of the wreath.  I played around with it for awhile and determined that 2 rows of cones was a really pretty look.

    I agree with Chelsea, at first glance I thought they were seashells. Very pretty!
