Long strips of anything-- newspaper,plastic bags,old rags.left over sewing material, calendar paper - anything.
Some sharp tool to pierce holes
Step 2: Making the wire hoop
Cut a sufficiently long piece of wire. Bend in half and twist if you think the wire needs to be stronger. Make a rough loop by bending the wire. Leave a small piece of wire at each end of the loop. This will come in handy when we hang it up later.
Step 3: Stringing the paper
Take a strip of paper. Gather it roughly with your hands like I have in the picture.
Hold it together and punch a hole right through the centre.
Step 4: Make a loop
After you have strung in your first strip of paper make a loop at the end. This is to hang the wreath.
Step 5: Stringing the pieces
Pass the wire through the hole. Repeat the third step with many strips of paper. If you are using plastic fabric or cloth , pierce a hole in the centre of a gathered strip, open out the fabric and run the wire through it like how you'd do a running stitch.
Step 6: Tying the ends
Once you have strung in all your paper, twist the remaining bit of wire around the stem of the loop we made at the start. Push the paper down if you need some more length for the hanging wire.
Step 7: Finishing
This is what it looked like in the end for me. I figured the circle I chose was somewhat smaller than I wanted it. So I put my hand through the centre and crumpled the paper all around the define the circle. And trim the edges by cutting into the outer and inner perimeter rough swishy cuts like how your hairstylist would ^_^
The finished wreath :). You can paint little strokes of gold and silver and maybe dust some gold glitter !
