Add a touch of spring to your home with this cute wreath...
I love everything about spring especially the flowers and new growth of leaves in my garden. I made this paper wreath to remind me of that time of year. It's bright and cheerful and best of all, easy to do! Use it to brighten up any area in your home. I have mine hanging on my back door in my kitchen. So far, even though the door is glass, it has not faded. Below I've explained how I did it...it's really pretty fool proof and doesn't cost anything to make if you have some springy looking paper.

Decorative Scrap booking Paper (a few different colors)
Hot Glue Gun (low temp)
- Use a pie dish or other circular item (in a size that you'd like your wreath to be) and cut a circle out of your cardboard.
- Now leaving about 3" cut a center circle out of that circle.
- If you are going to see the back of your wreath (hanging it on a glass door like mine) cover the back of your cardboard with fabric or scrap booking paper.
- Add a ribbon hanger to your new wreath base.
- Using 3-5 different paper designs, cut out leaf shapes, all the same size (see pictures) and then fold them in half, right sides together.
- Hot glue them to the wreath base, overlapping each leaf, and alternating colors in a random pattern. Cover the entire wreath.
MAKING THE PAPER ROSES:
- Cut 1 1/2" strips of scrapbook paper.
- For each rose you will need (2) of these strips glued together at the ends.
- Fold strips in half, wrong sides together.
- Tightly roll the strip, loosening as you go...See picture...and bend paper to give shape.
- Glue when satisfied with shape,
- Make 3 roses.
- Glue to wreath.
- Add bow to bottom of wreath.
ENJOY YOUR NEW WREATH!
