|Rustic wreath made from book pages.|
|Cardboard "donut" is base of wreath.|
|Cone, stapled at base.|
Now, you can either make all your cones first, or glue them on to the cardboard as you go. Janelle's three-row wreath used about eighty cones, and I decided to make my cones first. All the cones will be slightly different; don't worry about it. The key with this project is to embrace the words "wonky" and "rustic."
|Bin of approximately eighty cones.|
Time to start applying the cones to the base - but first attach the twine for hanging, as shown below.
|Make a loop, bring ends up through loop and knot.|
|First cones glued to back, about 3/4" in from the center.|
|Gluing cones to back; should have fitted a few more.|
|Gluing cones to front of cardboard base.|
|Completed ring of cones on front.|
|Glue top layer of cones to first layer.|
|Back side of wreath - fold ends of cones and glue.|
|I may add a few more cones to that top layer at some point.|
