Craft: rolled paper wreath
Old book pages rolled into cones and applied to a frame create this Fall wreath.
Yes I’m a bit early for Halloween!
The ends of the paper rolls are coated with a black and dark purple glitter mix:
This is a spin on my paper wreaths, star and star ornaments from last Fall:
The center banner is simple cardstock with glitter sticker letters:
The paper rolls really create a lot of volume:
Here’s how I made the paper wreath:
1. Obtain a plastic frame, mine has an 8″ x 10″ opening in the center.
Cover the outer edge of the frame with a strip of drop cloth or neutral fabric.
2. Make paper rolls:
I used old book pages torn into little rectangles about 2″ x 3″.
Roll into cone shape and hot glue:
3. Hot glue rolls to frame starting in corners and then equally spacing as you go:
4. One layer on, now add a second layer in the same fashion to cover remaining frame bits showing through:
5. Apply glue straight from bottle to edges of paper then sprinkle glitter over glue:
Add ribbon and banner:

That is CUTE! I wondered how you got the pages to look orange, but then I realized they're just old and yellowed. Cute, cute, cute! Very Halloween!

Very creative! The picture with the paper wrapped around your finger reminds of bugles (the snack chip). When I was younger I use to put them on my fingers. 🙂 Would love if you'd join our Countdown to Fall link party! Hope to see you there! Have a great week! 🙂
This looks great! I couldn't figure out what the book pages were until I read the post. I am a follower of your blog and would love if you could hop over to my blog (http://sarahsaturdiy.blogspot.com/) and share the blog love. Have a happy Monday!
Stopping in to pin this wreath, it's wonderful.
