Hump day craft post : holiday wreath

At the end of the school year last year one of the teachers in our building gave me a huge stack of holiday scrapbook paper.

As a gift, I am taking that paper and making a wreath for her. Shhhh.... It is a secret.

If you wanna make it you need A LOT of 6 inch by 1 inch strips looped and stapled. Then you STAGGER the loops on a styrofoam wreath.

Staggering is very important or your wreath will look odd. Trust me. This project takes a lot of hot glue and when you are done you will have finger burns to prove you have made it yourself.

Total time to cut, loop, staple and glue is about 3 hours.

If you make one leave me a link.

Really cute! I could never make this, as I can't even be trusted with a curling iron!

Wow, that's a pretty impressive wreath. What did the teacher you gave it to think? She must have been surprised.
