In our last post we learned how to create fabulously fall-worthy paper rosettes (below). If you missed that post, check it out HERE!
Now let’s work on how to use the rosettes you’ve created to make a beautiful Fall wreath!
For my wreath I created 15 rosettes in various colors and sizes. The bigger the wreath, the more rosettes you will need!
For the base of my wreath I used a thrift store fabric sewing hoop. I found a ton of these for $.25 each! Can’t get much cheaper than that! I traced the hoop circle onto apiece of cardboard. I used a 12×12 piece of cardboard that came in my 12×12 pack of paper. I try and recycle every part of my purchases!
I then cut out the circle and hot glued it onto my hoop. I use Hot Glue Gun Helpers whenever hot gluing. They are a life, and finger, saver! Me and hot glue do not get along very well but somehow I still use it for everything!
I use this base to glue my rosettes on. (Again, using hot glue) TIP: lay out and plan the order and layout of your wreath before you start gluing.
Here is my almost finished wreath. TIP: once you have all of the rosettes glued on and dry, flip over the wreath and add some more hot glue in spots for extra hold!
