DIY Christmas Wreath | Simple Stories

Sharing a fun project with you today. A beautifully decorate wreath created with paper!  So easy to create and you'll love doing this with your kids or grandkids or by yourself with some hot cocoa and Christmas music in the background!

I will admit this wasn't my idea - I did get this from Pinterest and if you'd like to see the original post CLICK HERE.


 I always love creating fun projects during the holidays. This year is no exception.
- Here are the instructions and I would LOVE to see what you create!

I used a 10" Foam Wreath for this project.
(Found at your local craft store)




6 sheets of 12x12 patterned paper (you could use more if you want a fuller wreath)
Cut strips of paper into 1/2″ X 12″ 
Curl each individual strip of paper with a bone folder



Pin the curled paper to the foam wreath

Add a bow or extra decorations such as balls, tags, candy canes etc!
I did spray mine with Therm-O-Web Glitter Spray.


I hope you enjoyed my project today and perhaps you'll give this a try!

Make It Merry | Jillibean Soup

Jillibean Soup Design Team Members were challenged to create something
"different" using the Holly Berry Borscht Collection this month.
I wanted to make something similar to a hanging quilt or something like that and I made this tree pieced on cardstock hanging from the Mix the Media Large Hanger. It makes my page cute and very festive!
You can add ribbon to the top or more diecuts hanging from the wired hanger. Endless possibilities! 



Supplies Used:
Jillibean Soup
Mini Metal Hanger
Patterned Paper: Holly Berry Borscht/ Lot of Lights, 1 Cup Holly Berries, 3 Cups Presents. Pinch of Peppermint
Star Glitter & Sequins: Holly Berry Borscht
Pea Pods & Diecuts: Holly Berry Borscht
Soup Labels: Holly Berry Borscht
