Hooray! It’s Friday! This has been a super long week for me…Darryl is really busy rehearsing students for a competition, so it’s been me flying solo most days and evenings lately. So I’m really happy that the weekend is here! We have a little trip to Ann Arbor planned to go to the Grand Opening of a new store that is carrying my jewelry line. It should be fun.
Anyway, since this week saw the start of Spring, I thought I would show you the new Spring wreath I made. It was pretty inexpensive to make, but was actually kind of labor intensive. If you want to make this paper ombre wreath, you will need:
:: foam wreath form
:: scrapbook paper in assorted colors
:: circle paper punch – mine is 1.5 inches (affiliate link)
:: hot glue gun
Step one is to punch out about five thousand little circles. Not really, but I did punch out as many as I could from each sheet of paper. I chose seven colors, and had way too many circles left over, so I made a paper garland with some baker’s twine.
Step two is to start layering the circles around the wreath, and glue them on with the hot glue gun. It took five circles to go around the width of the wreath form. This part took forever…I was gluing for a few days, because I don’t have an hour and a half to just sit and complete a craft project.
When you get to the end, you will have to trim your last row of circles down a little bit so that you can tuck them under the first row of circles, know what I mean? So that they overlap the right way.
Step three is to wrap some yarn or ribbon on top and hang on your door!
Kind of reminds me of fish scales. :)
Don’t you love a new wreath on your door? It gives the door a whole new look.
