DIY - Pretty Paper Craft Spring Wreath

I'm bringing Spring to my front door this month with some help from the lovely folks at Hobbycraft (craft supply heaven) and will be showing you how easy it is to make this pretty paper cut wreath. It's pastel of course and is going to be staying on my front door all year round! 

You will need:
You can find all of the materials over on the Hobbycraft website, i've linked them above for you to easily find the bits I used.

Step 1

First of all wrap the raffia lengths one by one around the polystyrene wreath securing to the back with glue and tucking in the ends as you move through the lengths. 

Step 2

Once you've wrapped the entire wreath shape then tidy the ends tucking them into others or trimming them with scissors. Use a little glue if you'd like them really neat. 

Step 3

Cut out a selection of shapes from the coloured paper either by hand using a scalpel and cutting mat or using a Cricut machine like me. If you haven't seen one before it's going to blow your mind. It's a table top paper cutter. You can draw your own designs and simply upload them onto the Cricut app which then cleverly cuts the shapes out of paper or fabric or vinyls... i've yet to try all of the many options but can't wait. I have the Cricut Air 2 model and have to say it is amazing! I was so impressed at the cutting time and literally made this project in an afternoon.

Step 4

Then all you need to do is peel the paper cut shapes away and attach them to your wreath using a glue gun or strong glue.

Ta da! As simple at that, do let me know if you have any questions and if you make one do tag me @heartzeena I love seeing your creations.

A huge thank you to Hobbycraft who sponsored all of the materials for this make.

Easter crafting inspiration with Hobbycraft

Last week I popped along to celebrate some Spring crafting with the fabulous folks at Hobbycraft . The event was hosted by One Roof Social at a lovely London venue called Carousel. I spent the afternoon crafting some floral Easter wreaths using products from their spring collection. Scroll down to see what we got up to and my faux floral wreath that will be lovely hanging up over the Easter weekend and beyond. You could make a version with fresh flowers but the great thing about the florals we used from Hobbycraft is that they're fake... And so my wreath will last forever!

Thank you to the One Roof team for such a lovely afternoon. You can find all the materials over on the Hobbycraft website. Happy making!
