Do you need something colorful for your front door? Try our crepe paper wreath! It is easy to make and perfect for spring. Grab some streamers and make a cute addition to your door! You will love the results. This one was first posted over at Fireflies and Jellybeans but I am sharing here in case you missed it.
Supplies needed to make your own crepe paper wreath:
- Crepe paper streamers (those bits left at the end of a party work great for this!)
- Florist wire
- Wreath form
- Hot glue and glue gun
I threaded the crepe paper streamers onto lengths of florist’s wire as shown below. Just work the wire in and out of the streamer to create a ruffled appearance. It will need to be long enough to go around your wreath form.
Then just wrap it around the wreath form and use the wire to secure in the back. The back of this wreath is actually unfinished with wire showing. Remember…no one will see when it is on your door!
Repeat this process all the way around the wreath overlapping the crepe paper streamers slightly to make sure that the wreath form is covered completely. Are you wondering why my wreath form is wrapped in fabric? That is my trick to using them over and over again! Just wrap in fabric and that way anything glued to the surface comes off easy and you can use the wreath for another creation.
I also added a monogram to the center of the wreath. Cut your letter from cardboard (a cereal box works well) and wrap in a contrasting color of crepe paper. Use hot glue to secure the ends of the streamer as well as using it to place the monogram in the center of your crepe paper wreath.
