DIY Wrapping Paper Wreath
November 11, 2013
Welcome to another week everyone and wishing you all a Happy Veteran’s Day – our town hosts a parade that honors our local veterans, then we’re off to celebrate Matt’s grandmother’s 104th birthday (!) today, bringing lunch and a cake to her home.
Today I’m featuring a project I showed a glimpse of in the Holiday Lookbook, a focal point wreath crafted with wrapping paper. The process to make it is similar to a bookpage wreath but this version is created with layered tubes of gift wrap!
To recreate, here’s what you’ll need: 12” foam wreath; 6 feet of sturdy wrapping paper (thicker is better); hot glue & glue gun; invisible tape, ribbon for hanging.
The first thing to do is to tie a ribbon around one section since you’ll be layering tubes of paper on top.
The rest is very simple and takes about an hour to complete. Cut one long 8 inch strip from the roll of wrapping paper then 2 inch strips from that section – wrap them around and secure with tape then hot glue them in layers to the wreath form.
Continue the process with three layers, making the tubes shorter on the inside circle, I cut mine down to 7” then 6” to form the middle.
Hang your wreath where it will get a lot of attention!
Any wrapping paper with an interesting repeat will do, or you can recreate this version with any of the three Mingle colorways available at my Spoonflower shop.
More holiday decorating coming soon!
