"P" is for Paper Wreath

Craft: rolled paper wreath


Old book pages rolled into cones and applied to a frame create this Fall wreath.  
Yes I'm a bit early for Halloween!

The ends of the paper rolls are coated with a black and dark purple glitter mix:






The center banner is simple cardstock with glitter sticker letters:



The paper rolls really create a lot of volume:




Here's how I made the paper wreath:

1. Obtain a plastic frame, mine has an 8" x 10" opening in the center.
Cover the outer edge of the frame with a strip of drop cloth or neutral fabric.

2. Make paper rolls:
I used old book pages torn into little rectangles about 2" x 3".
Roll into cone shape and hot glue:


3. Hot glue rolls to frame starting in corners and then equally spacing as you go:


4. One layer on, now add a second layer in the same fashion to cover remaining frame bits showing through:


5. Apply glue straight from bottle to edges of paper then sprinkle glitter over glue:


Add ribbon and banner:

  2. That is CUTE! I wondered how you got the pages to look orange, but then I realized they're just old and yellowed. Cute, cute, cute! Very Halloween!

  3. Very creative! The picture with the paper wrapped around your finger reminds of bugles (the snack chip). When I was younger I use to put them on my fingers. :) Would love if you'd join our Countdown to Fall link party! Hope to see you there! Have a great week! :)
