I don’t know what it is about wreaths. I used to not really like them. I didn’t have anything against them, but I preferred to put something else on my door for different seasons and holidays. I’ve shared lots of projects for my front door over the years, but more recently, I’ve really gotten into wreaths. This is a more modern and simple take on a wreath, and I adore the way this Rolled Wood Flower Wreath turned out.

I’ve made Paper Rolled Flowers before, and I love them! I’ve had this idea rolling around in my head for a while, that I wanted to see if I could make rolled flowers out of the wood cardstock that I have. I finally gave it a try, and I’m in love with the way it turned out.
Rolled Wood Flower Wreath Supplies:
- Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine
- Wood Veneer Cardstock
- Green Cardstock
- Wood Wreath Shape
- Hot Glue Gun
- Cricut Cut File
Start by getting your Cricut ready to cut out your design in Cricut Design Space. You can find the file I used HERE.
When cutting the wood, you’ll set your machine to “custom” and select wood from the drop down list. To read more about What materials the Cricut machine can cut, check out THIS POST.
My cardstock cut first.
Then my wood. I loved watching the machine cut this wood. It cut it so easily and it knew that it needed to be cut multiple times. It did a fantastic job cutting this wood veneer.
Once you have all of your material cut, you are ready to start putting your project together.
Start by rolling your flowers. This wood is a little harder to work with than paper. It doesn’t want to bend as well, and it can tear easily. Here are the steps for putting together the flowers. The Paper Crafting Tool Kit made making these flowers SO much easier. I used the paper piercer to help soften the wood to curl. Then I used the quilling tool to roll the flower. I put hot glue on the center when I got there, and then glued it down.
I painted my wreath with a light ivory color. Once it was dry, I lightly sanded the wood.
I stared laying out where I wanted my greenery.
I glued two pieces on.
Then I placed my flowers by it, to try and figure out the placement I wanted for them.
I got them all glued on, then stated adding some extra greenery.
By the time I got to this point, I was getting so excited about the way this was turning out!
I added the ribbon to the top and I was finished. I love the way the wreath pops when it’s against my front door.
The flowers, leaves and thin wreath design really stand out!
And I’ve never met a rolled paper flower that I didn’t like!
I can’t decide if I want to leave the wreath on the front door or hang it on this old window that I have in my kitchen. I like it here too!
So tell me, where would you hang this wreath in your home? Do you have the perfect place for it?
