Christmas paper wreath

During my many hours on Pinterest, I came across this paper wreath! I just loved it and wanted to make one for myself. I am happy to report it was a Pinterest success! (we all know we have had many epic pinterest fails!) I posted pictures during the creation on Instagram and Facebook Book. Here is the final result ... 

Christmas Paper Wreath

The paper curling took me 56 minutes ... yes I timed myself!! *giggle*
But I did that during Grey's Anatomy! So the time flew by. When it came to assembly and adding ribbon it was easy as pie!

DIY paper wreath!
1.  Cut your package of 12x12 Designer Series Paper into 12" long x 1/2" wide strips
2.  Use your bone folder to curl the paper
3.  Use your fingers to tighten paper curls as you go
3.  Use straight pins to pin paper curls into a 12" Styrofoam wreath
Simply pin through the center of the paper curl
4.  Finish with a ribbon bow (I used a hot glue gun)

Using the entire package of paper left me with a few left over. I used those to pin onto a Styrofoam ball to create a tree ornament. 

This project is so stunning and I am loving it! It was worth the hour of curling ribbon! Trust me! It is a lot of curling!

Thanks for reading and I hope you are inspired to have a creative day!
