~ All Seasons Wreath ~
Canvas Corp 9 Sheets Black and Ivory French Script Paper
Canvas Corp Fabric Panel Haunt It
Canvas Corp Cord Natural Hank
Canvas Corp Decorative Clothespins
3 12×12 sheets of colored cardstock
6″ Foam Wreath Form
Heat Activated Fabric Adhesive
Low Temp Hot Glue
Step 1: Cut images from your favorite Fabric Panel leaving at least a 1/4″ edge. Trace it onto fabric adhesive, cut out shape. Follow package directions for ironing adhesive to fabric. Trim images closely to reveal shape and remove strings. Color with permanent markers.
Step 2: Divide wreath form into 1″ quadrants. Cut 4 sheets of 12×12 French Script Paper in half. Roll into a cone lengthwise.
Step 3: Use a stapler to secure the large end. Use a brad or hot glue to secure the small end.
Step 4: Add paper cones to the wreath form working in pairs and dividing the form in half with each set of cones. I used Low Temp hot glue for my wreath. Make a loop from a 28″ piece of Natural Cord. Use a slip knot to attach it to the form.
Step 5: Cut 3-4 12×12 sheets French Script Paper into 6×6 squares. Roll into cones and adhere to form. The shorter cones fill in the spaces between the larger cones so 2 smaller cones might not fit. Remember to work in pairs so the wreath stays balanced.
Step 6: Cut a 6″ circle from French Script Paper, and an 8″ circle of a contrasting color. Cut complimentary strips of colored cardstock to frame the title. The title should be 1″ smaller on all sides than the patterned piece and 1/2″ smaller on all sides than the solid piece.
Step 7: Attach the circles together and to the wreath. The circles will cover the center snarl and add a splash of color.
Step 8: Adhere title and layers of cardstock together. Cut a piece of Cord 8″ long and tie a knot at the end. Punch a hole in upper corner of the cardstock frame. Pull Cord thru the layers of paper, leaving the knot in the front.
Step 9: Loop the Cord around one of the paper cones, lace the Cord through the back of the lower corner of the cardstock frame. Tie a knot in the front. Repeat for other end of cardstock frame.
Step 10: Cut a 35″ piece of Cord. Tie a loop at each end of the Cord. Slip loop over opposite paper cones. Use clothes pins to hang prepared images from the Fabric Panel onto the cord. Use a paperclip or brad to hold the cord in place if the weight of the images makes it slide.
