My Spring Wreath

Hi Guys, Happy 2013!!
Hey Everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful New Years!! I had a wonderful day, my hubby was on vacation, so he went back to work on Wednesday:(  While I was watching the parades, and hanging out with my family, playing our new favorite game, "Catch Phrase" it is fun, you will have to try it! Anyway, I saw a wreath that someone made on FB, and I just had to make one, The person that I saw make it was Sarah, on Stampingwithsarah.blogspot.com.  Sarah said that you needed 6 pieces of double sided paper, but I didn't think that was enough, so I think I used 10 sheets of double sided paper.
This is what I came up with.  I tried to pick Spring colors, and I chose the paper from K&Co.
 I also added some yellow ribbon from Paper Tray Ink.
So what you need is 10 sheets of double sided paper,
A stryofoam wreath
Common Pins
Ribbon
A pencil
Take 10 sheets of double sided paper, of your choice, cut the paper into 1/2" strips
Take the strips, and curl the around a pen, or pencil, or anything similar,
once you curl all the paper, or you can curl some and pin some, once you have the paper curled, you pin the curled paper into the wreath, all the way around, I liked it very full, but you can make it as full as you like.  before you fill in the top, I wrapped the ribbon around the styrofoam wreath to be able to hang it.  and that is it, very easy, I did it while watching t.v.  I hope you like it! Karen♥

  9. Just so beautiful and I love the spring colours, I am afraid it will be along time before we see spring here in Alberta....so much snow! But on a happy note we are leaving for Arizona on the 28th for a whole month and I can't wait! Looking forward to seeing the sunshine and getting a little colour back into old broken down body. Happy New Years and the best to your family in 2013!
