project holiday 2011 is my fave

December 1, 2011

Welcome to the first day of YAMF’s Project Holiday 2011, three weeks of (simple) holiday projects to spread the cheer. I have some good ones lined up so I hope you’ll join me. Let’s start with this paper leaf wreath crafted by my new Denver friend, Maggie.

To make your own you’ll need:
– medium weight paper (find this one at Anthropologie)
– styrofoam or wood wreath form
– scissors + hot glue

Cut out enough paper leaves (these were all free handed) to cover the entire wreath form then glue, layer and glue some more. Add a mini bow for a festive touch. That’s all, really. This one probably took her about an hour and a half to complete. I’m just sad I couldn’t keep it.

On an end note, I’ve been trying to think of a shorter name for project holiday so it fits the “treat yo’ self 2011” jingle but haven’t come up with anything yet. It’s thoughts like this that keep me awake at night.
