I've made a rolled paper wreath before, but it's been quite a while. I thought I'd go through the steps again for those of you that are new to my blog.
Today I'm making a Valentine-themed sheet music wreath:
To make this wreath, you will need a circle cut from a corrugated cardboard box and a loop of ribbon. Cut the ribbon and make a slit through the cardboard with a knife. Use hot glue to attach the ends of the ribbon together to make a sturdy attachment loop for hanging.
Find the center of your cardboard circle and use an ink pen to make a "belly button":
To make your sheet music cones, there are various methods. You can use rectangular pieces and experiment with cone-making until you find a method you like. If you like all of the ends even, you can trim them with scissors later. I think that's easier than cutting each piece of paper into a pattern first.
Once you have numerous cones rolled, you can begin gluing them to your cardboard circle. Using the hot glue gun and a chopstick, knitting needle or other long instrument, place a bead of glue extending from the belly button to the edge of the cardboard. Place the cone on the glue, using the chopstick to press the cone into place.
The center medallion decoration can be created from crepe paper, photocopied Valentines, or doilies. I used a paper doily, a photocopied vintage Valentine and stick-on rhinestones backed by manila cardstock:
Here is the finished paper cone wreath, ready for the center medallion:
I used hot glue to attach the center medallion:
And here is the finished wreath:
Since Valentine's Day is two days away, I guess you'd better get rolling!
