Paper Flower Wreath (or: what I've been doing while watching the Olympics)
I came across this wonderful wreath tutorial on April Meeker's Secondsister blog, and just had to try it! I'm in a springy mood these days (despite continuing really cold weather here in the tropics of southeast Texas), so I pulled out my old stash of favorite paper, and got to work. This wreath was very time consuming -- it took me several night's worth of Olympics watching to get it done. I decided while I was working on it that I wanted to glitter it, but I didn't want to individually glitter each flower. So, once it was finished, I sprayed the whole wreath with spray adhesive and dusted it with 2 kinds of glitter. This may not be the best method, but it sure was speedy! Anyway, I'm thrilled with the way this turned out! You can find the wonderful tutorial for this wreath here, and you can find April's delightful handmade items in her Etsy shop, SecondSister.
