Paper Wreath

by Betty Traciak

Make a paper wreath using an embroidery hoop.


  • Double-sided scrapbook paper, cut to 6” X 12”
  • 4-inch diameter wooden embroidery hoop
  • Tape adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • Grid paper (optional)
  • Embellishments
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Stampin’ Up!® products used here: for 1/4" Strip Wreath - Festive Farmhouse paper, Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack; for 3/8” Strip Wreath - Festive Farmhouse paper; for 1/2” Strip Wreath - Country Lane Designer Series Paper, Whisper White Cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Blackberry Bliss Ink Refill, Stampin’ Blends: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Whisper White 3/8” Classic Weave Ribbon, Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits


  1. Step 1

    Determine the size of strips you would like to cut for your wreath. Suggestions are 1/4”, 3/8” or 1/2”.

    Using the paper trimmer, cut determined width strips across the length of the double-sided paper. Cut to 1/2” inch of the edge and stop so the strips remain connected at the bottom.

  2. Step 2

    Measure and trim one inch from every other strip.

  3. Step 3

    Using the inside embroidery hoop, apply tape adhesive to both the outer and inner surface.

  4. Step 4

    Attach the connected edge of the paper to the inside of the embroidery hoop. Trim paper so there is no overlap.

  5. Step 5

    Bend each strip in a circle and attach the end of the strip to the outside of the ring. Press firmly to adhere to the tape.

  6. Step 6

    Decorate as desired to complete the project.
