You know all of that Christmas designer series paper that's sitting in your craft area? This is a great way to use it, give it away, and get it out of your craft room! I saw this wreath and just loved it. It is a little more complicated to fold than other origami wreaths I've seen, but boy is it beautiful! It would be lovely on a gift, a tree, or just by itself! Inspiration for this wreath is from watching Ann Melvin of Positively Papercraft on YouTube.
I've used the Whimsy and Wonder DSP because I love the colors and the flecks of silver foil. But, I plan on using my other holiday dsp also!
And take a look at how pretty the back is. I love the woven look! You could even make it the front of the wreath if you wanted.
You need eight 3" squares to make this size, but you could use 4" or 2".
You also need to use a bone folder to really crease the paper and break down the fibers for a good fold.
Not sure I like the ribbon this way. Instead of tying the ribbon around it, you can punch a hole in one of the star points and tie ribbon through that. I'm gonna try that next.
