DIY Wrapping Paper Wreath

November 11th, 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.
