As you may know I love to celebrate the seasons with a unique hand crafted wreath and for spring I decided to create a fresh, all white wreath made completely from butcher paper.

I always keep rolls of butcher paper on hand- it is one of the cheapest and most versatile supplies!

I started by cutting large strips of butcher paper and scrunched it up.

I then wrapped and glued it around a styrofoam wreath form.

Next, I created paper flowers by cutting out circles

that I crumbled up

to add texture.

Using hot glue (this makes it quick and easy) I layered the different circles on top of each other.

I created the center detail of the flowers by crumbling up tiny pieces of paper.

I created all sorts of flowers in different sizes- enough to fill the wreath.

I decided to create some little leaves for the wreath. By scrunching leaf shaped pieces of paper to add a little dimension.
