Gift Idea #2, Paper Wreaths!

This is a wonderful paper wreath from Living with Lindsey's blog. I loved the way it looked, like something out of a Pottery Barn catalog. I knew it would make a fantastic gift! This one is made from sheet music, Mahler's Symphony No. 1 to be exact. (Sorry Mahler!)
I started with a 12" foam wreath, Mahler's Symphony and a glue gun! This picture below is the half way point. I liked folding the staff music the same way throughout the wreath. In Lindsey's tutorial she suggests to fold the paper lots of different ways! If you are someone who has a lot of names on your Christmas list and not a ton of cash, this is the perfect gift this holiday season!! For under $10 you can make one of these paper wreaths! It is very simple and fun to make while listening to your favorite music!
Thank you for the fun tutorial Lindsey!!! The tutorial was a wonderful gift in itself!

Suppose one could use higher-quality wrapping paper to make it for various holidays? The paper only need be as thick as a book leaf, right? I hate to destroy books, even girl porn, like Loving Charity, heh.

So cool!
