Getting your house ready for Halloween? How about a wreath to embellish your house with or just put it on your front door? I’m going to show how to make a very easy wreath using patterned paper.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
First you need to choose your papers and add a piece of double-sided tape on one edge only on the inside of the paper.
I used 6″x6″ paper.
Then fold the paper to make paper cones. Start folding one corner of the paper towards the centre to create the cone shape, as shown in the pictures.
Cut a circle from greyboard or heavy card, punch a hole in it and add the twine for hanging.
Take the paper cones and glue them onto the circle one by one.
For the next step I cut a few narrow strips of paper, that I curled using my scissors and a knitting needle, then glued them in the centre of the wreath, just to add an extra detail.
For the centre element I die-cut a scalloped circle from Glitter Card, glued a bit of hemp twine on it, die-cut a few letters to form the word BOO from Black Card and added them on top of the twine.
* If the letters don’t stick on it, just glue them onto a piece of acetate paper then glue it on top of the twine using the glue gun.
