Here's another crafty Halloween wreath idea that I stumbled upon and had to share with you all! Now, I realize that not everyone celebrates Halloween. I totally get it--no judgement! That's why I also included the word Autumn in the title. This idea doesn't have to say or be about the popular dress-up holiday. With the right materials, you could make it red, white and blue for a patriotic display. Honestly, the creativity you put into something like this is limitless!
glue gun & glue
old book (or book printed scrapbooking paper)
Halloween greeting for the center (or something Fall-centric)
cardboard circle measuring 14″ in diameter
lace or ric rac for hanging
1. Cut out a piece of cardboard that measures 14” in diameter. You can use any kind of template like a plate charger or a large salad bowl.
2. Make approx. fifty paper cones from the pages of an old book, the pages for this wreath measure about 5”x 8.5”. You can easily get two cones from one 12" square of scrapbooking paper, so you don't have to ruin or destroy a book in the process.
3. Take each page and wrap it into a cone shape and use double sided tape to secure it.
4. After all of your cones are made, begin on the outer edge of the circle and secure those two-thirds of the way off the cardboard with centers pointing to the middle. Take each cone and bend each one 1” from the point and secure on cardboard with tape or hot glue. Work your way around and then to the center.
5. When you have all the cones secured to the cardboard and a 5″x5″ center spot left open for your Halloween greeting (or however big or small you want to make it), then create your 4” x 4” greeting using decorative paper or design your own on Photoshop and hot glue it to the center of the cardboard.
