This one is good. How can a pile of scrap paper make me so happy? Tuning it into a lovely round wreath of pretty is how. I love me a good wreath. I usually make one every year out of the scraps from our Christmas tree. We don't have out tree yet and I needed a little something to holiday up the room..Enter the coolest easiest paper wreath! Bonus, this is a very kid friendly project, a 2-year-old even made one.(Dont let that stop you as an adult from making one) And not just for Christmas.. Wreaths can be for any holiday or even a normal day. Pretty doesn't discriminate. I'll keep it short and sweet.
- Card board
- 2 different colors of contraction paper or cardstock
- glue(Glue sticks are the best)
Cut circles out of cardboard.Trace a big bowl or something round and smaller circle for the middle. Do any size you want and don't worry about it being perfect.. It doesn't matter,
Cut colored paper into pieces.. 1-2 inches and these also don't have to be perfect. I recommend using at least 2 different colors. We voted on green, I wanted to do pink and purple. ITs ok, I was a good sport. I am just going to make more later, with lots of fun colors and maybe even some glitter!!!! Oh do I love the holidays!
Starting from the outer circle, start gluing paper. Yup, you guessed it, doesn't have to be perfect. Look at the little go!
Embellish if you want. I like it simple, a nice contrasting color, festive and lalalala. This is also a good time to add a hanging device on the back. You can loop a piece of paper or use a piece of string.
