Confused about how to set up new blog

I bought my domain off Cloudflare for my new blog. I then signed up for WordPress Premium. But I’m not able to actually activate my website, so that I am successful when visiting my URL. It still says “The site can’t be reached.”

Do I need webhosting as the missing link?

On Cloudflare, on the DNS page, I pointed the CNAME to my wordpress value.

Please let me know what I am missing.

Sorry that should say Wordpress.com Premium above

WordPress should be able to provide you the DNS records you need to set in order for the site to work.
