After making more paper rosettes than I can count for Last week’s DIY Wednesday, (actually I did count and I don’t want you to call child services for neglect, because it took a while!) I had the remainder of all the book pages that I cut.
I had seen some wonderful paper wreaths circulating on Pinterest and wanted to give it a go but with the little scraps I had left. Mind you I had used a small book already so my scraps were only 4″ x 2¾”, not very big at all. That worked out perfectly though. I remembered I had a small 9″ wicker wreath form I picked up from the dollar store with little to no inspiration in mind and I knew I had something going. Again, this was a wicker wreath form, not a nice even foam wreath, but after I got to thinking about it, I probably would have done the same technique either way. So here’s what I did:
First I assembled all my supplies:
- I had an old book
- A Paper Cutter
- A Ruler
- Hot Glue Gun and plenty of Glue Sticks (I’ve mentioned before, the Dollar Store is a great place to pick some up for cheap)
- And my $1 wicker wreath form
