I made this adorable paper Christmas wreath this past weekend and finally have the finished product and full tutorial to show you!
Here is the how to:
1. First start with a standard straw or foam wreath form. Then wrap it with brown paper to create a "canvas" in which your glue will easily stick. I don't have pictures but to wrap the wreath cut your brown paper into strips and wind it around the wreath like ribbon and secure with hot glue.
2. Next cut 1 inch wide strips of scrap book paper in 3-5 different complimentary patterns. I used 40-50 strips for this project.
3. Next make loops with your paper by folding the paper over.
Using a hot glue gun, you will want to glue your loops down like this:
rather than this because you will use less paper and less glue.
Following a pattern worked well and looked nice.
Although all the papers were green - they were muted in tone so the wreath is nice and neutral.
I added a pop of shimmer with the ribbon and attached it to this mirror above our entry table.
Such an easy and pretty decoration!
I love seeing my whimsical mantel in the background! This is definitely a project to try. So easy and reasonable.
