DIY Paper Bow Wreath

Paper bows are always one of those things we can’t resist once they go on clearance, but we rarely end up using them on gifts.

Since most things look better grouped together we thought we’d try adding a whole cluster of bows to a foam wreath. We were surprised how lovely, modern and clean it looked.

To make the wreath you’ll need:

A foam wreath.

Some pins.

A thimble.

About 70-100 bows (depending on size of wreath and bows).

This really is the easiest project, because all you do is pin the bows into place. The hardest part is punching the pin through the paper on the bow, that’s why the thimble comes in handy. :)

What do you guys think? Will you be making one?

    I love this idea! I am trying to create it on my own but I have a question…

    Did you use the green flat circle foam wreath or the rounded circle?

    My local craft store has both however, I just wanted to be sure I got the same PERFECT look you have created here!

    Tara, the wreath we used was a white rounded one, it creates a nice shape when the bows are placed and is better than using a green one in case any gaps show through.
