Project idea from lovepomegranatehouse.com
- 1 sheet of 8"x11" chipboard
- Card stock:
- 5 sheets of 12"x12" Stone Henge (Grey)
- 8 sheets of 12"x12" Allspice (Dark Orange)
- 4 sheets 12"x12" Dark Salmon (Light Orange)
- Glue gun
- Paper cutter
- Small hole punch
- Fish line or wire
- Draw or trace an 8" circle onto the chipboard and cut out.
- Cut all of the card stock into 6" squares (4 per 12"x12" sheet).
- Take each 6" square and roll into a cone with a corner as the tip of the "petal." Place a dab of glue on the paper to keep it rolled up.
- Keep on rolling and gluing until you have: 18 grey, 32 dark orange, and 10 light orange. You will have 5-6 light orange squares left - wait to roll these for the middle of the wreath, as you'll need to roll them smaller to fit.
- Take your grey cones and flatten then fold the ends up from the bottom 1/2". Glue the grey cones onto the chipboard circle, using the folded edge to line up with the edge of the circle. For this first round of cones, leave a small gap between the cones. Note: after you glue on the first two cones, punch a hole on either side of them near the edge to put your wire or fish line through.
- Continue to fold, glue, and place the remaining cones, placing them between the last round cones. You should have 1 row of grey, 2 rows of dark orange, and 1 row of light orange. This will leave you with an empty space in the middle.
- Take your leftover squares of light orange and roll them skinnier than the other ones. Place and glue them in the middle. Note: this isn't an exact science - we ended up cutting off and folding some of the ends to make them fit into the center.
- Create a loop of wire or fish line through the two holes you made before, and hang your beautiful new wreath.
