Hello everyone! It’s Eva on the blog today, showing you how to create some easy and fun wreaths to decorate your house or your presents this year.
I am using the Merry Little Christmas line and its colors are perfect, classic but with cute patterns and a touch of blue that creates a modern combination!
To create my little wreaths, I started but cutting little strips of paper. Mine were 3/8 inch wide and used mainly papers from the 12×12 paper pad.
I rolled my strips with quilling tools from We R Memory Keepers. You can use a manual tool or a powered USB tool. Both are great! Kids can help too because it is easy and fun!
Don’t roll the paper strips too tight, otherwise, you are not going to be able to insert the wire!
To create the wreath I used some Happy Jig wire and a glass as my guide. On each wreath, I put 18 rolled papers and my decorations were 3 inches wide.
You can leave them like this but I decided to include a sentiment on the inside. Again, I used my Happy Jig wire and created the word with some pliers and my hands, the wire bends easily!
I also made one with my son’s name, how cool is that?
The final touch was a small tag that I cut from one of the patterned papers. I love to have ready-made tags, It makes everything easier!
How cute are these small wreaths?
You can use them as tree decorations, to give as gifts, as place holders, so many possibilities!
I hope that you liked this idea and that you give it a try! It is the perfect craft to make with your kids and some leftover paper!
Thanks for joining me today and have a great day!
