I recently made a book page wreath out of an old copy of The Notebook and I absolutely love the way it turned out! It’s such a unique wreath that has such a whimsical feeling to it!
One of the comments I received on my book page wreath was that it would look really pretty as a rainbow! That totally got my wheels spinning and I knew I had to make a rainbow paper flower wreath asap since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up!
The best part is, I had all of these supplies on hand so I didn’t have to go buy anything! There are definitely perks at times to being a craft supply hoarder! I turned a pack of construction paper and the lid of a pizza box into this bright and cheery rainbow paper flower wreath!

Lets Make It Together!
Step 1: Trace a large circle on a cardboard pizza box. I used the lid of a cookie tin that I repurposed HERE! (My dimensions are 10″ wide…see photo at end of tutorial)
Step 2: Cut out the circle. This is your wreath form
Step 3: Gather several pieces of paper and arrange in rainbow order.
Step 4: Cut each piece in half and then again – so each piece of paper turns into 4 pieces.
Step 5: Roll one corner up like so
Step 6: Continue rolling and then place a dab of hot glue in the bottom corner and adhere to the roll. Continue until you’ve made enough rolls to go around the outer edge of the wreath form. *goal is to make the rolls cone shaped with a point on the one end
Step 7: Place a small amount of hot glue on the bottom of the roll and adhere to the cardboard wreath form
Step 8: Place rolls like so creating a circle. The bottom “edge” of each roll should line up like pictured with the yellow circle
Step 9: Continue on to the next row, blue rolls. Fold up the bottom edge of the cone and apply glue to the folded up area. You fold up the bottom to give the paper rolls more dimension.
Step 10: Place each row slightly lower than the last like so
Step 11: By the 4th row, the space to glue the rolls becomes quite small. So you won’t be able to fold up the bottom of the rolls anymore. Just put hot glue around the whole bottom tip of the roll and stick in on top of the other rows
Step 12: The center will be just 1 roll
Step 13: Attach a pipe cleaner to the back for a hook
Overall Dimensions: It’s hard to tell you exactly how many rolls to make for each color, simply because each person rolls their rolls just a bit different. Some are tighter, some are looser. But here are the overall dimensions of my wreath
Rainbow Paper Flower Wreath!
Isn’t it so pretty and fun?!?! I love it!
