Hi, I am Carmody of Paper & Fox, a DIY blog, full of crafty projects and clever ideas. I am a maker by nature and use Paper & Fox to share ideas and tutorials on ways to add art, design and crafts to your life without spending a lot of money. I love when something as simple as a piece of paper and a little creativity can turn an ordinary object into something really spectacular. I live with my husband and red-headed little boys in Charlotte, North Carolina. My family and kids play big part in the way I think and keep me creative. My Rope Bracelet, Whale Inspired Mugs, and Botanical Art are examples of how it can be really easy to create beautiful things.
It’s wreath time! First, let me begin with saying that I do not normally destroy books. I love books, but I sacrificed a “not so good one” to complete this project. I also really like making things out of paper. I wanted a simple and pretty wreath.
Cardboard cut unto a the shape of a wreath (I used a cardboard from a box of diapers)
Book pages (each bloom takes 3 pages)
Glue gun and glue gun sticks
After you have your cardboard circle prepared, fold the book pages with an accordion fold. Combine 3 book pages together, pinching the center of the accordion fold. The folded pages should resemble and butterfly.
Get out your metal fasteners.
Wrap one fastener around the the book pages and pinch the bottom together.
Now, put on a good movie and make some paper blooms until you have enough to complete your wreath. They paper blooms do not have to be perfect, just pretty. I used hot glue to attach the paper blooms to the cardboard circle. Arrange the blooms to make your wreath. Ta Da!
