Cover with Loose Paper Curls
Design by Maria Charbonneaux
Instead of adhering tightly wrapped paper curls to your wreath, hot-glue one end of the strip to your wreath and pull the other end of the strip out to form a loose curl. (Wrap your paper strips around a pencil to get these great curls).
Create a Color-Block Design
Design by Ashley McGraw
For a striking effect, group strips of patterned paper by color, and design the wreath in sections.
Try an Artsy Design
Design by Meredith Jinks
Weave curled strips of patterned paper and ribbon around the wreath, adhering the loops with hot glue. Add buttons to the tops of paper loops for a simple accent.
