I jumped at taking the course when I saw that she would be teaching us how to make paper cone wreaths.You see, she has a large wreath in her craft room that I have coveted since the first time it appeared in her videos.
Using old books (or in my case, books I was planning to chuck in my decluttering), I went to task on creating some fun "nerdy" crafts for my home.
The most tedious of the projects was a wreath covered in paper roses. I'm glad I chose a small base, but I love how delicate the flowers look and smile every time I get to my door (where it is currently hanging).
|I literally tore apart an ENTIRE book to make this small wreath.|
|I thought about giving this away as a gift (as I do with all my projects), but I ended up keeping it!|
|The base was a simple ring covered in book pages. I then proceeded to attach cone after cone after cone.|
|I added a little lace, some paper flowers and some buttons.|
|I just love the volume and subtle color this wreath gives my walls.|
|One of two cone wreaths that currently hang on my wall. I'm hoping to add a smaller third one. I believe in the power of three for visual balance.|
Love, love, love these projects. I'm so glad that there are so many mediums to learn new techniques. Being able to take a class online means that I can take my time to gather my materials and watch when I'm free. I'm definitely planning to take some more!
