How to Make a Paper Wreath – Dahlia Inspired {Under $10 to Make!}

The first change in our house is with the mantel, it was decorated top to bottom for Valentine’s Day and screamed winter. Some of the changes that I will be making are; adding a new wreath, making a sign and decorating a few fun vases to fill with beautiful spring flowers. My theme this year is yellow, grey and white. Family Heritage Mantel - Hey everyone, it's Friday!!

I think I may finally start working on my flower beds this weekend. I'm pretty excited about it. This weekend will be the "prep". I get to pull out all of the ugly plants and get the beds ready for flowers. Lets hope the weather holds out! I thought this Dahlia wreath was beautiful, and would be fun in such a variety of colors.

 I made this one in particular for my Mom’s house.  It really just pops on their front door, I love it!!  Their house is a nice light blue, so I added the little bit of blue for the outer layer, and yellow is just so cheery!!  I think it may be neat to do one for Christmas, but make it look more like Holly and add some berries or something.

The DIY blooming paper dahlia wreath was originally created by Christine Meyer for the Core’dinations Core blog.

Put a new spin on your home decor this spring with our blooming dahlia wreath! Check out how to make this beautiful wreath using just four supplies! Step 1: First, choose four colors of cardstock for your paper dahlia wreath. After you’ve chosen your cardstock colors you will cut your pieces. From the color of cardstock you want to line the outside of the wreath with, cut approximately 55 4 x 4 square inch pieces. Step 2: Start rolling your squares into cones. Step 3: After molding the second side the same way, add a line of hot glue to the side that will be on top. Step 4: Hold together to allow the glue to dry thoroughly. Step 5: Once you’ve assembled all of the cones, begin gluing them down. Step 6: Continue with the next layer using whatever color cardstock you’ve chosen. Spring, oh spring!

Where have you gone!? Last week we had some gorgeous days in the 70s and this weekend we got a foot of snow! What the heck!? Come back to me, spring! Dahlias are my very favorite flower.
