paper ornament wreath

Over the years I've had lots of fun coming up with all kinds of unique wreaths and this year I've got some fun ideas up my sleeve.

Since I have been busy creating hand made art journals, I now have TONS of leftover strips of paper scraps and I came up with a fun way to put those scraps to use- creating paper ornaments!

I can remember creating paper ornaments from strips of construction paper back in elementary school and I love the idea of using this concept but with unique paper.  

To start I grabbed 4-5 strips of paper.

I bent the paper into a circle and using hot glue attached both ends.

Next, I bent another strip of paper over the top of the first and continued bending and gluing strips of paper until I formed a ball.

All those paper balls can be used for ornaments or even a garland!

I used mine to create a big colorful wreath by gluing all the paper ornaments to a wooden embroidery hoop.

I love how fun and colorful the wreath turned out! It can be used as non traditional holiday wreath or even something that can stay up year round. Three cheers for not throwing away scraps!
