So I whipped out my glue gun and went to town!
This first one is inspired by this Halloween Wreath from Tatertots & Jello.
A wreath form
Ribbon: (One thick to cover the form and 4-5 other types 5-7yds each)
Start by wrapping the thicker ribbon around the wreath form and secure with a dab of glue
Next cut the other ribbon into 4.5inch strips (go ahead and plan on using the whole roll)
Fold each strip over and secure with a staple or dab of glue. (It helps to do this before adding to the wreath so you have all your ribbon loops ready to go)
Go to town adding the loops to the wreath with a glue gun. Start with just one layer, then continue alternating the ribbon patterns until it is full. You can also try switching up the direction of each loop for a fuller look)
TA DA!!! This one is a 9 inch, I plan on making this big patriotic one for our new front door on base!
This next one was inspired by the book release party The Nester threw for her sister. I can't wait to hang it in the new office to inspire my own creative writing. You can find a great tutorial here.
A wreath form
Text heavy book pages
Begin by tearing the pages of a book. Text heavy pages that are light weight work best
Simple roll or fold each piece any way you like, keeping the binding side of the page near the top, and secure it to the wreath.
I have to admit, I got a little frustrated for a while and wasn't sure if it was going to ever take shape, but if you work in layers, filling in gaps all the way around, it fills up rather quickly.
Done anything crafty lately?
