Primary Technique: Paper Crafts

Occasion/Theme: Winter

Beginner

Materials:

  • 1 flat wreath base
  • 1 bottle of Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Assorted wrapping paper (I used all metallics)
  • Pencil
  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue Stick
  • Assorted gems and/or a bow

Instructions:

  1. Cut your paper into 4×4″ squares. It’s ok if they aren’t perfect, it will give more texture to the finished look.
     
  2. Take one piece and at the diagonal corner, roll it around the pencil. Add a generous amount of glue stick to the corner to seal the end down. Slide it off the pencil.


     
  3. Sort them by color. Next, pick up a handful, tap them so they are even and cut off the ends so one side is flat and the other is spiky.
     
  4. Apply a generous amount of Tacky Glue to the base, one section at a time. Set the rolls on the glue. Space them evenly and keep going all the way around.


     
  5. Let this dry and then add a second layer of rolls in between each of the first layer so it hides the base. If you want, you can cut the pieces shorter for the second row.
