Vintage Wreath


Being that I have a little more spare time on my hands, I've been a little busy bee here in Santa's Work Shoppe. Among many other items, I've created a vintage wreath using very old pattern paper. If your interested, here's how I did it...If your not...look at the pretty pictures.


I started with vintage patterns




and cut them into squares....you decide the size




then you fold them using the fan technique and secure them with whatever you have...I used raffia because I couldn't find my twine




it makes one of those "Old Skool" wedding flowers....remember?




I attached a ribbon and proceeded to glue gun them to a Styrofoam wreath. It actually looked pretty good as is.....




but I took it a step further....I sprayed the tips turquoise




and added some glitter




and Voila'...
a Sparkly and Turquoise Vintage Wreath. Super easy to make.
