How To Make A Paper Hydrangea Wreath
1. Punch out hydrangea petals. Using the Fiskars® Lia Griffith Hydrangea Punch, punch out petals in varying blues, whites and light purples to match the color of a hydrangea in bloom, or choose your favorite colors to create a wreath that matches your home décor.
2. Curl in each petal with paper curler. To give the paper more life-like texture, curl each petal using the Fiskars® Lia Griffith Paper Curler.
3. Cut foam balls in half and glue. To best serve as the base for your hydrangea, cut in half as many foam balls as are needed to fit around the wreath form. After this is completed, begin to glue petals onto the cut foam shapes until they are completely covered. Cutting the foam like this will allow the balls to be glued more securely to the wreath base and sit flat against a wall or door once it is hung.
4. Punch out paper leaves. For more color and added dimension, use the Fiskars® Lia Griffith Leaf Lever Punch to punch out paper leaf shapes of varying sizes.
To help them match the life-like appearance of the blooms, score them down the middle using the curling tool and give them a slight shape by folding before adhering to the wreath base.
Glue punched leaves onto hydrangea blooms.
5. Glue each hydrangea bloom onto the wreath. Using the Fiskars® Lia Griffith Hot Glue Gun, assemble the blooms and leaves into a formation of your choice on top of the wreath form, paying close attention to filling all holes. You'll be left with a wreath that will outlast the changing season and bring you joy all year long!
