Wreaths are awesome because they can be customized for any holiday, season, or occasion. There’s an endless amount of styles and materials you can use to make them.

  • Roll the paper, then staple it at the bottom. Begin pulling down the petals and shaping them to resemble a flower. Repeat the previous steps to make as many flowers as you need.
