Paper Wreath

My friend, Nancy first did this for Halloween and I loved it - THEN she did Christmas!!!   Keri Brown, one of our Sparkle N Sprinkle Design Team did yet another.....   So...got me in the mood and off I went to do my own.  Turns out to be very simple!  Hardest part, as always is selecting the paper.  I used a set from SU.  It's a little tedious cutting and curling all those strips, but easy and lots of fun when you get going.  Bunches and bunches of 1" x 12" strips.



For the center, I followed my friend, Nancy's Christmas ornament instructions and added it to my wreath.  I used Champagne Glimmer Paper from SU and a patterned velvety paper from Reflections for the ball.  Found a perfect pendant at Michael's in the Champagne Color too.   I'd select a little less heavy CS the next time as the back didn't want to stay together very well.  Oh well, you can't see it anyway LOL...   The ornament was created with 24 circles  (3 1/2") and my trusty hot glue gun.
It's got clear buttons on the top and bottom.




Hope you enjoy it.

  6. Oh MY! You have been busy, Miss Brenda! Your wreath is amazing, as are all your projects. Love the colors, and the added ornament in the middle. I wonder if I could make this, if I started in August next year it might be done in December. Not sure if I can do the curling (is that done with the scissors edge, like curling ribbon?) Not sure what Florida's humidity would do to the curls. But back to your wreath - it is beautiful, B. You have outdone yourself.
