Christmas Paper Wreath


I've been wanting to make a wreath like this for awhile - my 5 year old son and I tackled it on Thanksgiving. I purchased a styrofoam wreath (mine is about 18 inches). I then cut about 15 sheets of patterned paper into 1 X 5 inch strips - you get about 14 from a sheet. Mine are not even all Christmas papers - just some greens and reds that worked well mixed in. Don't go too crazy trying to match perfectly - trust me mine don't and they still blend together well! My son stapled the ends together to make a loop. Then I hot glued them onto the wreath working around one row at a time. In all it took about 2 hours!
