In keeping with my goal of crafting Christmas throughout the year..

I have been doing these paper wreaths with different themes since last summer.  It started with a birthday wreath, then I did quite a few fall/halloween versions some of which I posted, I have patriotic and beach themed ones waiting for me to get back to them :)

This one is built on a 8.5 inch styrofoam wreath and paper strips 10 x 1 and 3/4 inches.  I used Graphic 45's Christmas Past for most of the papers on this one.  From my stash;  vintage plastic snowflakes, flowers, sparkly leaves,  stickers and a lot of (mostly) Platinum Stickles.  These are very light, I have used E6000 t0 glue a sawtooth picture hanger on the back to hang it.

Note:  Done this size it can be stored in a pizza box.

Thanks for having a look!

Note:  I have entered my wreath in the ABC Christmas Challenge, CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge
