Halloween Designer Paper Wreath!

Have I ever told you I love wreaths.....and I love designer paper......and I love Halloween! So combine all three of those and this is what you end up with:

I used the Happy Haunting Designer Paper for this wreath. How pretty would this be using Christmas designer paper?  I used 26 strips of designer paper measuring 12" x 1-1/4". You need a foam wreath and all I did was wrap one strip at a time around the wreath. I made sure to lay the wreath flat on my workspace and after I wrapped the strip, I glued the two ends together all the way to the wreath. The back of the paper is completely flat but as you press the two sides together, work your way to the wreath and the top layer takes the shape of the wreath. I then used my Paper Snips to cut a "V" on the ends of each strip. When you add additional strips, make sure to overlap them to the previous strip. It really does not take long to complete this wreath.

I cut a scallop circle using the Circles Collection Framelits Dies in Tangelo Twist Cardstock and added a Spider Web Doily to the center:

I then layered the sentiment which was stamped using Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock with the Witches' Night stamp set and cut with the coordinating Lots Of Labels Framelits Dies.

EDIT: I've had several email to ask the size of my wreath, I used a 12" foam circle but this could be adapted to any size.
 Here are the supplies I used and make sure you add in a foam wreath:
