Here’s how to make an easy rainbow paper leaf wreath in just a few steps.
Materials to Make a Rainbow Paper Leaf Wreath
Cardstock in rainbow colors (I went with pastel, but you could brighten things up with primary colors!) You will need 2 pieces of each color you choose.
A piece of cardboard
Command strips (for hanging the wreath)
How to make this easy paper leaf wreath
Step 1 Trace your dinner plate onto the cardboard and cut out. Cut out an inner circle, leaving about 1.5” of cardboard all around for the wreath.
Step 2 Cut your leaves: I folded each piece of card stock in half vertically, so I could cut 2 leaves at a time.
Draw your leaf onto the card stock and cut them out, or just freehand cut them. I got 4 leaves from each piece of cardstock, so 8 leaves total for each color.
Step 3 Add little fringe cuts on the sides of the leaves if you like.
Step 4 Glue your leaves on with hot glue going 1 row at a time. Just dab a little hot glue at the base of your leaf and press it firmly onto the cardboard wreath.
Step 5 Continue gluing leaves on all around the wreath. I used 6 colors of cardstock, so you can draw dividing lines onto your wreath first to make sure you have enough space for each leaf color.
Notes: This paper rainbow leaf wreath brightens up any space! I hung my wreath with Command strips, but you could also use a small nail to hang it on a wall, or just prop it up on a shelf.
