crepe paper wreath

I started out with a $1 wreath form,
and wrapped it with crepe paper.

Then I cut the crepe paper into strips,
lots and lots of strips.

Take two strips and criss cross them like so...

Pinch the center and gather like so...

And hot glue them to your form.

keep going

when you're almost done,
hot glue a ribbon to the form

finish and hang!

perfect for Valentine's day!

  15. You did a great job with it and the best thing about it. It is that is cheap. Also it is custom made and I think that those kind of things have more value that things that are standardize that why a love Kamagra products because they aren't
