What's black and white and perfect wreath material?
Supplies: A 24 inch styrofoam wreath, newspaper, scissors, pinking shears, a ruler or paper trimmer, thin floral wire glue gun. Optional: Spider Webbing (I picked some up at Dollar Tree) and a Halloween sign or letters. I used a $1.00 EEK sign from Target.
Step One: Cut or trim 50 stacks of 4 x 4 inch newspaper squares (three squares in each stack). You are basically going to create fifty flowers from newspaper and wire.
Step 2: Fold each stack into accordions, each fold about at 1/2 inch. Trim two sides with pinking shears.
Here's what it looks like
Step 3: Fold up the accordion and secure in the center with a piece of wire
Step 4: Spread the folds gently
Gently pull the layers up and apart
This is what the "flower" looks like at this point
To make the streamers, grab a sheet of newspaper. Fold 3/4 inch accordion folds.
Cut into 1 1/2 inch long strips
Here's an accordion strip. I also cut three 1 1/2 long strips to make a faux "bow"
Use the hot glue gun to put the flowers on the wreath. Start on the inside, then the middle and the exterior layer. Attach bow and streamers with glue gun also.
I wanted to spookify this project a little
I added some spider webbing and nestled an "EEK!" sign from Target inside
Here's the finished product.
