I’m not sure about you, but inspiration strikes me in the unlikeliest of places sometimes…I don’t necessarily need nature, music, or even Pinterest to inspire me…sometimes all it takes is a stroll through Target to do the trick!
All you need is tape (I used just over one pack), scissors, and a foam wreath form (mine was 12″). I’m calling this tape “duct tape”, but, technically, it’s masking tape. You can tear it by hand like masking tape, but, honestly, it feels like washi tape when you’re working with it, so it’s kind of a masking/duct/washi tape blend. Got it? So glad to clear that one up. 🙂
Step 1: Anyway, grab your tape of choice, your wreath form, and scissors, and you’re ready to begin! Because a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s the first three steps in pictorial form….
Basically, take a length of tape approximately 3.5 inches long, fold the top inch and a half over (middle pic), and then use your scissors to trim up a leaf shape.
Step 2: Attach it to your wreath form and repeat. You can get an idea below of how I proceeded around the wreath, overlapping leaves to make sure the whole form was covered.
And here’s an image about an hour in…halfway through!
Continue around the wreath form, and you’re done!
This was one of those projects that really turned out better than I could’ve imagined. I love the color, the pattern, and the simplicity of it. If you make one of your own, please send me a picture, I’d love to see!
