Faux Flower & Paper Wreath

Bunch of faux flowers
Embroidery hoop (use either outside or inside hoop)
Glue gun and glue stick

1. Cut out 4″-6″ long leaves from the cardstock.
2. Cut a 1″-2″ slit down the middle of each leaf length-wise. Then, cut little notches on both sides of each leaf.
3. Add a dab of glue on the bottom of one side of the leaf, then overlap the other side to curl the leaf upwards. Hold in place, and allow glue to set.
5. Cut off flower head from the stem, and proceed to glue on leaves and flowers onto the embroidery hoop.
6. Cut out a 24″ strand of yarn and tie that onto the wreath … and hang!

I wanted a black string for a modern contrast, but you can use twine for a more natural look. I love mixing faux flowers and paper for some texture; this would make an adorable flower crown too!
