Easy, DIY Canada Day Layered Wreath

This Canada Day Layered Wreath is special for my Canadian crafters!  I forget how close Canada Day is to the 4th of July.  As soon as I posted my 4th of July Layered Wreath, I received several requests for a Canadian version.

This design has 11 layers but you shouldn’t be intimidated.  It is really easy to make.  The maple leaf itself is 5 layers, you can make multiples and use it for other decorations as well.  Here’s what you’ll need.

Materials & Supplies

How to Make a Canada Day Layered Wreath in Cricut Design Space

Follow these easy steps to make the Canada Day Layered Wreath using Cricut Design Space.

Open Cricut Design Space and click the + to create a new project.

In the Design Panel on the left, select “Upload.”

Click Upload Image, then Browse, and navigate to the file on your device to upload it to Cricut Design Space.  Here you can change the name and add tags. Click “Save.”

You’ll see all of the layers in the Layers Panel on the right side of your screen.

When I said this was easy, I meant it! There is nothing you have to do with this design except to resize it.  Simply keep the layers grouped and in the Edit Tool Bar enter the width of the size you want the wreath to be.  Keep in mind 11.5″ is the maximum size you can go in Cricut Design Space.

Resize the design in the Edit Toolbar.Now you’re ready to cut the design.  Click Make It in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Now you're ready to cut. Click Make It in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Assembling the Canada Day Wreath

After you cut the design, use the foam adhesive to put it together.  It’s best to use the adhesive in the same spot on each layer to get an even rise and layered look.

Cricut Design Space doesn’t cut out the layers in order so it can get confusing to piece together especially with this many layers.  Head back to Design Space to see the layers as a reference for how to put the wreath together.

Start with the maple leaf which has five layers.  There are three red layers and two white layers.  The image below shows you from bottom to top how the layers should be placed starting with the solid maple leaf and ending with the outline of the maple leaf.

Next, piece together the two mandalas that sit behind the maple leaf with the smaller mandala layered on top of the larger mandala.

Next, glue together the two layers of the mandala.

Then, work with the two red petal leaf layers and two white petal leaf layers. The image below shows you from bottom to top how the layers should be placed starting with the larger red petal leaf layer and ending with the smaller white petal leaf layer with the cuts in the center.  Place the leaves from each of the white layers in between the leaves from each of the red layers.  Then place one on top of the other.

Lastly, piece together the 4 layer petal leaves.

Now, put it all together.  The 5 layer maple leaf will sit on the 2 layer mandala which sits on the 4 layers of petal leaves.

  2. I have a silhouette cameo so when I put it in the program I used the dxf files. When I went to ungroup the file it ungrouped everything . so all I got was a bunch of segments and no layers to pull apart .can you help

    1. Hi Marilyn. I’m so sorry you’re having trouble. What edition of Silhouette Studio are you using? If you’re using the Basic Edition you have to use DXF files and those files aren’t layered or grouped which makes them tricky to work with. If you are using the Designer Edition you will be able to group the layers of the DXF file or better yet, use the SVG file format.

  3. I am using the 4.1 program of silhouette .Everything will come apart in layers except the mandala and the maple leaf . when ungrouped it leaves them in segments which is a pain in the ass.lol is there anyway that you can group those layers separately .I would greatly appreciate if it is possible. for I am not in a position to upgrade to the designer edition of silhouette at the moment but I would really like to try this item

  4. I have tried and tried just short of taking each layer and pulling out what isn’t needed and then grouping them together as you will know how time comsuming that is and then I stop and think is this really worth the effort. I like the design but not to the point of spending hours doing that

    1. Hi Marilyn – I apologize that this design has taken up so much of your time. I’ve included a Silhouette Studio file in the zip file that now has all of the layers properly grouped for Silhouette users. I’ve also responded to your email with the updated files. Please let me know if this now works for you.
