Freshen up your home this year with this Spring wreath I put together using the Fern Leaves Set and the Abigail Butterfly from my collection. If you’re not into butterflies, you could easily replace the butterflies in this wreath with paper flowers. I don’t have any flower designs in my collection because there are already so many incredible paper flower artists out there. Lia Griffith has an incredible collection of paper flower tutorials and if you have an Etsy account you probably already know the vast array of paper flower designs available there.
I’ve never been much of a wreath person. It takes a special organized mind to be able to put up a different wreath every season and store away the old one for when the season comes around again. That’s the person I aspire to be. I’m more of a “store it away and forget about it forever” type of person. So paper wreaths are just right for me. I make them when I feel like it and I can match them to my decor. And when I get tired of looking at it, I make a new one!

MONTH OF MAY SPECIAL: This month I’m offering the Fern Leaves Set together with the Abigail butterfly in one special SVG bundle. This is a versatile set you’ll love having in your SVG collection. You can make many other wreaths with this set and the Abigail butterfly can also be used as wall stickers. I will be creating more projects with this set so stay tuned! You can also purchase this special bundle from my Etsy shop.
Here is look at the cutouts you’ll need for this wreath:
Here are a few notes before you assemble your wreath:
- If you’re not familiar with them, the Abigail butterflies in this wreath have a top layer that I tea-stained—you can find the tutorial here. I’ve been loving this butterfly more and more because I’m able to change out the colors in the middle layer and still retain that vintage look with the tea-stained layer. It’s a charming little butterfly that you can use in multiple projects.
- I use a 12″ grapevine hoop for my wreath. You can find similar hoops if you do a search for “grapevine hoop” on Etsy.
If you use a smaller or larger hoop you’ll have to adjust the number of cutouts you use. As a general rule, you can divide your wreath into 4 quarters and based on this you can gauge how much you need of each cutout. If you’re using a hoop any smaller than 10″ I would leave the large Fern leaves out and just use the small ones or you can cut them down to a length that looks good with your hoop size.
