Paper Wreath

My theme is yellow, grey and white. I love this combination and it’s definitely one that can take you from Spring into Summer.

What you need:

Yellow, white and grey construction paper. You can use card stock or even scrapbooking paper.
Hot Glue Gun
Piece of Cardboard
Scissors or paper cutter. I recommend a paper cutter for this project as it will produce nice clean lines and it’s much quicker for the job
Protractor

We had pizza for dinner so I became resourceful and cut off the top of the box to use for my wreath. Pizza boxes are great because they are sturdy and so easy to cut into. But any piece of cardboard will work for this.

Using a protractor, draw a 10 inch diameter circle and cut it out. Then on the same piece of cardboard draw another circle with a 8 inch diameter.

Then take your yellow and white construction paper and cut them into 4 x 4 squares, on my wreath I used about 70 yellow, 30 white and about 11 grey. Your wreath might use more or a little less, depending on how tight you make your cones.

Cut the grey paper into 3 X 3 as this will be the center of your flower.

Take each paper and wrap it just like a cone, leaving it open on top and closed at the bottom. Using your hot glue gun, place a little glue under the seam so it stays closed.

To place it onto the cardboard, pinch the bottom of your cone flat and hot glue it onto the line that you drew on the cardboard. Leave about a finger width space in between each cone.

Then when you get to the second row, place the cones in between the spaces creating a layering effect.

Do this all the way until you get into the middle of your flower.

On my flower, I did two rows of white, 4 rows of yellow and filled the rest with the grey paper. Finish it off by hot gluing a ribbon to the back for hanging.
