Create a festive wreath for the holiday season with this paper flower Christmas wreath sign! Decorate a round wood sign with a vinyl Christmas message and build a wreath with green 3D flowers!
Hello Crafty Friends! Today is the 11th day of my craft series “12 Days of Holiday Crafts“! Today I’m sharing a tutorial for making a paper flower Christmas wreath sign. This sign makes a festive decoration for the holiday season and is a fun alternative to a traditional wreath.
The sign is made with a 14” round wood board. After painted a green border around the board, I created the wreath with green paper flowers. I found these really fun flowers in Cricut Design Space that have spiky edges. When the flowers are assembled together they look like an evergreen wreath!
Below is the tutorial for making your own wreath sign, plus a link to my Cricut Design Space file. I love creating non-traditional wreaths and this one is my new favorite!

Painting the Wood Sign
Start by painting the wooden sign using white and green acrylic paint. I first placed a 10.5 dinner plate in the center of my sign and traced around it with pencil. This left a border of about 1.75″ all the way around.
Next, I painted the border of the board green and the inside white. This way if any gaps show through the green paper flowers it will be green and blend in. I used acrylic paint I had on hand which happened to be Patio Paint. While Patio Paint is intended for outdoor use, it has amazing coverage and I only needed one coat of each color.
Decorating the Sign with a Vinyl Message
Cut a message from red vinyl and weed it using a Cricut weeding tool. Use Transfer Tape to transfer the message to the wooden sign. Position the sign lower on the sign to save room for the bow at the top.
Creating the Paper Flower Wreath
Cut 14 flowers from green cardstock. Use a tweezers or paper quilling tool to help you roll each paper flower. Start by rolling the outer edge all the way to the inside. Place hot glue on the small round piece at the center of the flower and secure the rolled flower on top of it. I kept my flowers fairly loose so they would fill up the space and create a full, lush wreath.
Assemble the red paper bow. Start by rolling the 4 bow pieces along a large marker to gently curve them. Adhere all four bow pieces to the center and bring the thin rectangle down from the top and wrap it around the bow pieces.
Use hot glue to attach the bow to the top of the sign then fill in the rest of the green border with paper flowers.
Finally add a red ribbon to the back of the round sign so the wreath can be hung.
I’m so excited with how this wood wreath turned out! It is so festive and I love how from far away the flowers look like evergreen. Tomorrow I’ll be back for my final craft tutorial in my series “12 Days of Holiday Crafts“.
