I put the wreath around a ceramic vase I have that used to have a wreath of autumn colors around it. The change is refreshing! I still want to try to use paper towels like Nicole did, but melting the crayons is always fun, too.

Paper Flower Wreath
http://madebynicole.blogspot.com/ , there is a tutorial on how to make a wonderful painted paper towel wreath. I can't believe how many comments this gal has gotten over how fabulous her creation is! I had to try it, too, but gave it my own twist. I used white v-shaped coffee filters and melted various crayon colors on them and then sprinkled part with crystalline glitter. The rest I painted with pink and red water colors. After drying, I cut the paper into six-petaled flowers of various sizes. I also through in some burlap flowers like Nicole. I glued the paper flowers together using hot glue and adhered a large adhesive gem in the centers. I covered the dollar store wreath with burlap and then glued the flowers on the burlap.
