DIY Spring Wreath Tutorial

Happy Easter! Today I decided to share my Spring Wreath.  Here is what it looks like when it's all finished:


My friend Katie from The Crafty Blog Stalker made a wreath using this technique last year.  To check out her post click HERE.  This is what her's looks like:


Ok, now here is everything that you'll need for this project:  (except I forgot to put a pencil in the picture.... ooops!)


Then you will take your paper and wrap it around your pencil like so:


Then you glue it down with a bunch of hot glue.  And you repeat this process about a million times :)  Here is what it looks like part of the way done:


Here is a close up of what my wreath looks like:


Here is one more shot of my finished Spring Wreath:


I love the way that this project turned out!  It is so cute and Springy!  This project takes a while, but I think that this is really worth it!  What do you think?!

    2. Hi Emily! This is going to sound silly, but I'm not sure how long it took. The time really blended together. I would say at least 4 movies... maybe more. It is super cute when it's all said and done though!

  72. Congrats, Ashley!
    Your tutorial was picked and featured by our Bowdabra Designers in our Eco Friendly collection today from last week's Crafty Showcase. What a great way to use leftover paper of any sort. Honestly it was also picked because we know you spent many hours on this and it paid off. It is outstanding and we have seen you featured on other blogs, too!
