leaf wreath

directionsleaf wreath
  • Print this sheet of leaves out onto white cardstock.
  • Trim each leaf shape out with scissors or an x-acto knife to create leaf templates.
  • Trace leaf shapes onto your autumn toned text papers. You can fit multiple leaves up on each 8.5 x 11" sheet of paper.
  • Cut out your shapes using a scissors or x-acto knife. Our wreath has approximately 25 leaves.
  • To create the circle form, place a paper plate on an 11 x 17 sheet of cardstock and trace with a pencil. Cut this shape out with scissors. Using your scissors, cut out the center of the circle to make a ring shape. (width of ring should be about 1”)
  • Using your mono adhesive, adhere each leaf to the paper ring. Fill in any open spaces with more leaves until you have a full wreath of leaves.
  • Use as a centerpiece on a table or hang as a wreath on a door!
