Other Supplies:
May Arts ribbons
Vintage book
Styrofoam Wreath
patterned paper
Hi Jenifer here with you today to share this fun wreath I made for Halloween.  It was simple to make in just a few steps.
Step 1:  Tear pages from an old book.  Roll the pages so that the point is at one end.  Pin them to a styrofoam wreath.  Once you get the fullness you desire spray with Glitter Dust.
Step 2:  Create the center.  Cut out a large circle from a 12×12 piece of paper, this will be the base.   Cut 4 3″ Strips and do an accordion fold every inch attach the ends so that you create a large medallion circle.  Attach the center with a Jumbo Zot.  Attach a doily to the center of the medallion with a Jumbo Zot.  Make a smaller medallion to the doily.  Stamp your Greeting and attach using Large Zots.
Step 3:  Use your favorite ribbon to attach it to your door hook.  I used the new May Arts 1 1/2″ Chevron Twill Stripes in Black and Orange.
Here is a close up of the Silver Glitter Dust.  It just adds the perfect touch to all of your projects. Consider cutting the pages into shapes such as leaves, flowers or snowflakes for a really unique look as well  I hope you have enjoyed my project today, make sure you come back tomorrow for even more inspiration.
