You Will Need
- coloured paper (A selection of shades)
- Embroidery hoop (8 inch)
- Glue stick
- Ribbon (Or twine)
Using your glue, begin glueing your leaves to the embroidery hoop. Try and keep your leaves mirroring each other as you build the base layer to create a balanced paper cut.
Alternate different colour and shaped leaves as you glue around the base, pointing all your leaves in the same direction for this initial base will also help give the wreath a balanced feel.
For the flower shapes use a marker pen to draw on circles in the middle of the shapes with small lines coming out from the circles. You can add illustrative details onto the leaves as well if you want more depth.
Keep glueing leaves over each each other alternating between shapes, size and colour so that your wreath looks full and abundant.
Once you are happy with your wreath add the twine or ribbon to the back of the embroidery hoop ready to hang to celebrate the season.
