Paper Wreath DIY
Embroidered wreaths are a great way to add some colour and texture to your home. They look lovely hanging on doorways or windowsills and make thoughtful gifts for friends and family. The beautiful thing about this paper decoration is that the flowers look like real flowers yet they aren’t going to dye or take up too much space because they are flat. Perfect for displaying in small spaces and yet creating a big impact!
The wreath embroidery template is printed onto the paper making it a little bit like a dot-to-dot but with wool rather than a pencil. Once the paper embroidery is finished, cut out the wreath shape, thread through the ribbon and find a good spot to display it, that’s assuming you are keeping it for yourself! They are perfect gifts for birthdays, Mother's Day, Christmas and Valentine's Day so you may be torn!
Wreath is approximately 29 cm wide x 31cm high (11.5 x 12.25 inches)
The velvet ribbon is a gorgeous shade of burgundy and adjustable in length to fit your space perfectly.
Each embroidery kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented boxed, branded with the product image on the front, making it ready for gifting.
We also have a smaller, slightly easier embroidery wreath available in our shop!
The wreath embroidery is made using a mix of stitches. A whipped back stitch which is a fun variation of the simple back stitch and a woven wheel stitch sometimes known as ‘rose stitch’, ‘woven wheel stitch’ or ‘wagon wheel stitch’.
The pink and white flowers are cosmos and symbolise devotion, faithfulness, friendship and peace. Whilst the phlox symbolises companionship.
