Good morning Cutties. I'm adding my paper cone wreaths project to my garden. When I saw this beautiful project on the net, I had to try it. I used old books, magazines, and scrapbook paper that I had. It took me a little while to understand the technique. But then I am a slow learner compared to others. I even hung one on my front door.

They are very lovely. We use to make these for Christmas. But they were not as lovely.

Your wreaths are absolutely stunning! What a clever way to use up all the leftover papers from scrapbooking or card making.

Well, thank you. But I certainly did not invent them. I'm a copy cat. Carole NB Canada.

Wow, this is amazing. I love it. The first time I see this. Never now what you can make with wallpapper. Beautiful colors you used.
I see to many things here that I like. I think I'm running out of time, what I still want to make with all the ideas here.

wallpaper works well too (or so I am told)

Absolutely, wallpaper is the best as it is a little thicker. I have used an old phone book too. The thing I found with wall paper is the back of each cone is a little yellowish. But then it gives a nice design. Thank you for visiting.

Thank you. Actually, if you google "paper cone wreath" you will be amazed at how many hundreds of sites there are. Also check images...there are pages and pages of beautiful wreaths. Youtube also offers many uploaded videos. NB.Canada When I see something that is really nice, inexpensive to make, I try it.
