Crepe Paper Wreath for Spring

 

Crepe Paper Wreath - By Sweet Pea

 

Spring is nearly here! It’s time to remove winter décor, exchanging it for a fresh look. An easy-to-make crepe paper wreath can be used on your door, your mantel, or perhaps on a porch wall.  Mine is a focal point for my 2013 Easter Mantel.

 

How to Make a Crepe Paper Wreath

Crepe Paper Wreath Supplies

Supplies:

16 or 19” styrofoam wreath

2 rolls of crepe paper

Coordinating ribbon

Sewing pins

Scissors

 

Procedure:

1.  Pin one end of the crepe paper to the wreath.  Wrap the crepe paper around the wreath to cover the styrofoam.  Pin the finished end and cut off the excess.

3.  Cut crepe paper into 4” sections.

4.  Pin crepe paper to wreath, overlapping each section to make the wreath full.  Continue to add crepe paper sections until the wreath is completely covered.
