DIY Paper wreath

his year I have decided that our Christmas decor theme is...Drum roll please...

Paper, Wood and White!!

I've never been the traditional green and red kinda gal! Each year I have a different color theme! When I was single and living alone, it was usually either pink or purple! ;)

 A few years ago it was blue!

This year my challenge is to try and use natural materials and items that are already in the house!

Today I made a paper wreath! I used a book that I already had, a little gold spray paint, and glitter!!

I first ripped out the pages from the book and free hand cut the shape into leafs.

I folded the leafs in half and put a just a little glue to keep it folded

I  glued them to a wreath I used for Thanksgiving.

Figuring out a pattern was a little hard because I didn't want the leafs to smash or overlay, So I started in the front and filled in empty spaces as I went.

It came out perfect!

I love it!!

I added a burlap ribbon from fabric I already had!

Happy Thursday!!
