V-Day Rosette Wreath

My weekend craft project was cheap and simple!

Materials used:
- two small rolls of crepe paper
- heart wreath from Michael's
-  basic glue (i.e. Elmer's)
- hot glue gun
- ribbon

The project is delightfully simple!

1.  cut the crepe paper in various lengths

2.  crinkle the crepe paper in a ball to add more texture and volume

3.  unwind the crepe paper and start to roll into a rosette, starting with a tight roll in the center, and loosening as you go to create the effect of the petals

4.  use a bit of Elmer's glue to hold the end in place

5.  hot glue the rosette to the pre-made wreath

6.  finish with a ribbon and anchor to your door!

I was inspired by a similar wreath for sale on Etsy, and took some tips from this great tutorial.
