The Masking Paper Wreath

I made several book page wreaths over the holidays but still wanted to make a few smaller ones that I can use to layer and display on a few of our pieces. Wreaths are not just for the holidays. Well I don't think so anyway. I believe they are a great decor all year round. I made two of these smaller wreaths and used masking paper instead of book pages. When shopping at Roberts I was unable to find a small styrofoam wreath so I grabbed a small circle and just cut the middle out.
These smaller wreaths can be hung anywhere and on anything. These are hanging on the doors of our black hutch.
Coming up we have a great armoire transformation plus a little dresser for my baby nephew Cash.

Happy Monday.

Beautiful wreaths! I just picked up several new styrofoam wreaths at our Goodwill for 55 cents just to make this type of wreath! Much cheaper than the store. lol Now I need to figure out how and get busy!!
