Paper Party Wreath

We found this adorable paper wreath project from Bloesem Kids and decided to modify it a touch using 8 x 8 inch scrapbooking papers. Hang this wreath on your front door for your next party, so that your guests know they’re in the right place!

Here’s what you need
Cardboard (from an old shipping box)
Patterned & Colorful Papers (we’re using Sparky & Marie Isabelle 8 x 8 inch scrapbooking paper by Trimcraft)
Yarn or Ribbon
Scissors
Tape

Step One
Cut your wreath form from cardboard to your desired size. I used a compass to help me draw my shape.

Step Two
Cut your papers into 1″ strips (you may also vary the width of your strips).

Step Three
One by one, tape your strips onto the backside of your cardboard form making sure to create an arc with your strip, so that the finished wreath has some dimension. In other words, make sure to not tape the strip flush to the cardboard form.

Step Four
You can adorn your wreath with a sweet little message banner indicating the title for your special event (ex. Happy Easter).

Step Five
Cut a generous piece of pretty ribbon or scrumptious yarn. Fold in half and tape or glue to the backside of your wreath for hanging.

Voila!

Thank you for joining us. It’s now time to hop on over to Dena Designs!
