This project was really easy - I took 4 sheets of paper and cut them into strips that were 6" long by 1.5" wide. I only ended up using about half the strips but I wanted the variety of 4 different patterns. Next I stapled the strips, one by one, to a Styrofoam wreath form, overlapping them slightly as I went. I didn't worry about what the back looked like, just made the strips smooth on the front.
To decorate the wreath I made three tissue paper flowers and hot glued them on. It seemed like a lot of white so to break it up I punched two hearts and stuck them on as well.
Voila! Super easy and made entirely of stuff I already had. The one thing I will have to purchase is some pretty ribbon to hang it with - the pipecleaner I'm using now is not really doing it for me but I was excited to share with you. The other great thing about this wreath is that if I get tired of it I can easily pull out the staples and start over again with different paper. I'd only be out a couple of dollars worth of paper which is better than paying for a new wreath form.
What do you think? Can you picture this is in other colour schemes for different occasions?
