And you thought paper towels were only good for cleaning up spills.
They can also be used to adorn the walls of our home in a lovely display of decoration :)
I don't know why I decided to make this wreath.
I think I was just fiddling with a paper towel one evening
and ended up twisting it into a rosette.
And of course the wheels in my head started turning
and I was thinking, "I know I can create something with these!"
You will need:
12" x 12" card stock
hot glue gun and glue
buttons, beads, rhinestones (optional)
Draw or trace a heart onto your card stock.
Then draw another heart inside your main heart.
After cutting it out, you will have this....
By the way, I apologize for the black dot on some of my photos.
My lens has a scratch and I can't always get a good shot around it :)
Anyway. . .
At the top of the heart,
use a hole punch and tie some ribbon through the hole.
Cut your paper towels into strips.
Fold one end like this and begin twisting into a circle to create a rosette.

Okay, hold your rosette together with one hand and with your other hand
apply hot glue to your heart paper wreath and press your rosette onto the glue.
This will hold it together.
Continue to do this until your wreath is covered.
And you're done!
You can also apply any kind of embellishment.
I added 2 buttons to one wreath.
