I started crafting with paper many years ago when I began scrapbooking. I fell in love with all the pretty scrapbook paper. The one thing I have never made is a paper wreath and I love wreaths! Finally I made a Fun Summer Paper Wreath and I had so much fun doing this. I can’t wait to make some more.
On the first Monday of each month, a group of DIY and crafty bloggers join forces to bring you the #BlingontheCrafts blog hop. Each blogger creates a glittery, sparkly, shiny, shimmery, sequined, or “blingy” craft to share that goes with a monthly theme.
Below are some affiliate links and I may make a commission for purchases made through the following links.
May’s theme is Summer. Each blogger chooses their own craft to make as long as it’s summer themed.

Let’s Create a Fun Summer Paper Wreath
In Cricut Design Space™ using my Cricut Access Premium I created the banners, the sun, the summer banner, and the flip-flops and sunglasses image. All of these images are available in Cricut Design Space. Then I cut all the images on my Cricut Maker in the card stock and the glitter vinyl.
I used glue dots to add the banners to the wreath. Just wrap the banner around the wreath and use a couple glue dots, more is better for this project. I put the glue dot closest to the wreath because it made the paper stay together better. Sometimes the paper still came undone, so I went in with the hot glue gun and glued the paper together. I didn’t glue untying to the wreath.
I did the card stock in a pattern around the wreath.
Then I glued the cute sun with some glittering cheeks, the banner in the center, and the flip flops and sunglasses at the bottom together. Each image has a touch of sparkle with the glitter vinyl.
These images just make you smile and wish it was summer now! I left extra ribbon on the summer banner to glue the extra ribbon on the back of the wreath. To hang the wreath, I added a black ribbon to the back of the wreath with hot glue.
This wreath is colorful, bright, and cheery! Everyone will be smiling when they walk into our home after seeing this cute wreath. I had so much fun making my first paper wreath and I’m excited to make more, plus I love a project that uses paper from my paper stash. My favorite things about summer our on this wreath- sunshine, sunglasses and flip flops!
