I was in the store the other day and saw a really pretty 4th of July wreath, done with loops of burlap ribbon and metal stars. When I went to look at the price, I couldn’t believe how much they were asking for it! As crafters, you know what we say next, right? I could make that!
Well, this paper wreath is inspired by the ribbon one I saw, but the great news is – you can make it with CutCardStock paper! It’s a great item for any summer holiday and super easy to assemble. Of course, when you use the vibrant Pop Tone papers, it’s likely to look even more special than a store bought one!
Here’s a video instructional on how this project comes together:
The papers I’ve chosen for this project are the Wild Cherry Pop Tone Red, the Basis Navy Blue and the Sweet Tooth Pop Tone White. I’m also using tools like a scoring board and a cardboard ring, and the stars come from a basic die cut. This comes together nicely with staples and tacky glue and looks great on a kitchen door!
If you are looking for a project to keep the kids busy this summer, this is also easy for little hands to assemble. Only a little assistance is needed for stapling the papers to the ring.
I also think this project would look neat around the base of a bowl of candy or a candle too. If you do this, make sure the heat source doesn’t get too hot for the paper.
Finish off the project with some ribbon or twine and you have yourself a very inexpensive Americana decoration. What other colors of Pop Tone papers would you choose for a wreath project? Maybe a summer beach theme instead?
