Spring is in the air, and what better way to welcome the season than with a colorful and cheerful DIY wreath? In this article, we’ll show you how to create a stunning spring wreath with paper fans, a fun and easy craft project that is perfect for all ages.
To make this spring wreath with paper fans, you’ll need the following materials:
- Assorted patterned paper or card stock
- Ribbon or twine
- A wreath base (you can use a grapevine wreath, foam wreath, or any other type of wreath base)
Step 1: Create Paper Fans
The first step is to create paper fans using the patterned paper or cardstock. To do this, follow these simple steps:
- Cut a rectangular piece of paper (around 12 inches by 5 inches).
- Fold the paper accordion-style, making each fold about 1 inch wide.
- Fold the accordion in half and glue the two ends together to create a fan.
- Repeat this process with different colors and patterns of paper until you have enough fans to cover your wreath base.
Step 2: Attach Fans to Wreath Base
Once you have created enough paper fans, it’s time to attach them to your wreath base. Start by arranging the fans in a pattern that you like, and then use glue to attach them to the wreath base.
Make sure to leave enough space between each fan to create a balanced and visually appealing wreath. You can also mix and match the sizes and patterns of the fans to create a more dynamic look.
Step 3: Add Ribbon or Twine
After attaching all of the paper fans to the wreath base, it’s time to add some ribbon or twine to hang your wreath. Simply tie a length of ribbon or twine to the wreath base and knot it securely.
You can also use the ribbon or twine to create a bow or loop for hanging your wreath.
Step 4: Final Touches
Once you’ve attached the ribbon or twine, it’s time to add any final touches to your spring wreath. You can add additional embellishments, such as paper flowers, leaves, or butterflies, to give your wreath a more festive and colorful look.
Alternatively, you can keep your wreath simple and let the colorful paper fans speak for themselves. Hang your wreath on your front door, in your living room, or anywhere else you’d like to add a pop of color and cheer.
