Rolled Paper Flower Wreath

I had the perfect plan in mind for the rolled paper flowers I made this weekend.

026 (570x379)

Inspired by a wreath I’d seen at Target, I used hot glue to secure them to the closest thing I had on hand to a wreath form, a 6″ embroidery hoop (99 cents at any craft store).

030 (570x380)

I glued them all around the outside of the circle, then filled in the inside.

046 (570x379)

058 (570x379)

There were a few empty spots, so I made smaller flowers (using a 1/4 page instead of a 1/2) to fill in the gaps. If your wreath will be viewed from the side you might want to make several of these smaller flowers to line the edge, too).

I hung it on the chalkboard at my desk using some string and a thumbtack.

I love the contrast of matte black and warm white, especially during the cooler months.

071 (570x408)

It’s such a sweet addition to a space where I spend a lot of time working on my blog and shop, not to mentioned playing with Jack just a few feet away. I had to add a filing cabinet next to the desk since Jack was getting into the open file cart I utilized for years and now the desk is scooched over to no longer be centered under the pegboard. It’s the little things like this that drive me slowly insane and I’m on the hunt for a smaller filing cabinet that will tuck under the desk.

I hope you lovelies have a happy Thanksgiving if you’re here in the States, or just another wonderful day for those further afield. I’ll be taking the day off from posting tomorrow to spend time with family. I’m thankful for you!

  1. Can you put casters or something on the table legs to raise the height of the table? It looks like their the same height so you wouldn’t have to raise it much.

      I have considered that! I’m not sure if it would work as the legs are metal and thus difficult to drill into, but there’s got to be some solution.

  2. Cute wreath! Happy Thanksgiving, Charlotte! I’m thankful for you, too!

    Very clever. I swear I saw a photo of it on another page and it looked like a wreath made out of seashells at a distance. Either way, it is lovely!
