I love the colors and patterns of the papers I used for my Folded Paper Leaves. I decided to make another project with the same scrapbook papers. I created a gorgeous Fall Ruffle Paper Wreath. It was inspired by a favorite project I made a few years ago -my Ruffly Kraft Paper Wreath.
This wreath is similar but not exactly like my original ruffly paper wreath. It uses three different patterns of paper and the circles have a scalloped edge.
The materials I used to make this Fall Ruffle Paper Wreath was a wreath form (12 inches), white ribbon, scallop circle punch, fall colored papers, pencil, wreath form, ribbon, hot glue and hot glue sticks. Scallop circle punch is 3.5 inches.
First, I wrapped ribbon around the wreath form using a hot glue gun to secure it at the beginning and end points.
Next, I used my scallop circle punch to make several scalloped circles from the scrapbook papers. You may recall I manually cut out circles for my ruffly paper wreath. You could also do it manually but a punch helps especially because this is scalloped.
NOTE: I do not know the exact number of scalloped circles I used on this wreath. I estimate I used about 80-90 circles. The number of circles needed depends on how tight you want the paper ruffles to be overall on the wreath.
I placed a bottom of a pencil (eraser side) in the middle of a circle and wrapped it around the pencil.
This creates the “ruffles.” I did this for all the circles.
I started gluing the circle ruffles onto the wreath form using a hot glue gun. I place glued on the bottom tip (white side of my paper) of a circle ruffle. I then attached it to the wreath. I continued to glue the circle ruffles all along the front of my wreath. The back side of the wreath has ruffles.
I checked my wreath often to make sure the ruffles looked nice and even and had no gaps.
TIP: Sometimes I used my pencil’s eraser side when I need to secure a circle ruffle onto the wreath. It helped to firmly push it in the middle.
I love how pretty my new Fall Ruffle Paper Wreath looks. I think it’s so beautiful with the white colors mixed in with the fall colors.
