Wreath on Canvas Tutorial

Have you seen that fabulous fabric wreath over at V and Co. The first thing I thought when I saw it was I want one. The second thing I thought was I can make it with paper.

Here is what you'll need: Glue, paper cutter, scrapbook paper, rub-ons, canvas, card stock.

First things first, I used a bowl to cut out a circle and then I just cut out its center. No need to be exact here because it is going to get covered. You can just draw a circle onto your canvas but I tried this and it didn't turn out as round.

Next cut your strips of paper 2 1/2 inches by 1/2 inch.

Fold your paper in half to find its center.

Now fold each side down at the center crease.

Do the same with the other side so you have this.

Glue down paper on your "wreath form."

Glue your wreath onto the canvas and get your rub-ons placed down.
I have also done this as a gift using a monogram so I thought I would show you what it looks like.
I used another rub on and made a tag.
Proudly display your work of art.
I also made one with three mini wreaths, I will show you the finished project next week and give you the dimensions for the paper strips I used.
