Easy Scrapbooking Paper Wreath

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Scrapbooking Paper Wreath We’ve had several rainy days and I have finally had a chance to finish a project that has been cooking in my brain for a while…my scrapbooking paper wreath! It is super easy to do..and the fun part is that you could use any paper that matches the season!

Oz As usual, my staff seems to have left me to work alone. Our CEO Miss Ozzie is particularly relaxed, so I won’t disturb her!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Scrapbooking Paper Wreath TutorialHere’s what you will need:
  • Sheets of double-sided scrapbooking paper or two sheets back to back. I found Walmart to be an inexpensive source for the thinner paper that I needed. (I actually put two sheet back to back because I liked the colors better, although it would be easier to use double-sided sheets.) I used one book of 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheets and a portion of another.
  • Cardboard cut into a 10 inch circle or a cake round
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Hot glue gun
  • Strip of burlap for the rose
  • Loop of jute twine for the hanger
And here is what you will do:
  1. Find the center of your circle by drawing two intersecting lines.
  2. Create approximately 24 cones in each of two sizes by rolling scrapbooking paper cut into 8 1/2 inch and then 5 1/2 inch squares and securing them with tape. 
  3. Hot glue cones along the four lines to create a guide for the rest of the cones.
  4. Continue filling in with the larger cones until the outer part of the wreath is complete.
  5. Hot glue the smaller cones along the inside of the larger ones, always having them meet in the middle.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Scrapbooking Paper Wreath And…taaa daaa!…here it is! I am adding mine to my back door for a little splash of color to greet my special back door friends! Here, I have to add that when my little three-year-old grandson spotted it, he gleefully shouted "Party hats! Can I have one?" lol So of course we had to make one with the leftovers! ;-)

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT No-Sew Burlap Rose WreathAnd just in case you would like another summery wreath, here is my no-sew burlap rose wreath…also super easy and fun to make!
