DIY Paper Wreath

At MOPS a few weeks ago we were given the craft to make a paper wreath, and with two babies, I decided to take the craft home. I finally got the time to make it and it was surprisingly easy!

The materials needed are: 
  • Pages of a book, ripped out. I took a black marker and colored the three exposed sides of the book before I ripped the pages out. 
  • Marker with a flat and wide base (I used a dry erase marker)
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Foam tube, ends taped together, approximately 12 inches in diameter
  • Twine
  • Sharpie (Or any pen-like object)

First, I tied a bow with the twine at the point of the foam circle where the two ends met and secured it with hot glue.

Then, I took one page and put the marker at the center and folded the page around the marker.

I then put a dab of hot glue on the flat end.

Lastly, I held the page to the wreath. You need to hold it in place for about half a minute and let the glue set. A third of the way through, I started to use a sharpie and inserted it into the middle of the page to push it into the wreath.

Completed wreath! It actually turned out pretty big, And it looks great!
