Accordion Fold Paper Wreath

Today I made a new wreath for my front door:

I love how it turned out! And guess what? It's made of paper! It's a modern, cheap option compared to a traditional wreath. The whole thing cost me $1 in clearance scrapbook paper.

I started by making a bunch of accordion fold flowers using THIS tutorial.

Then I cut a wreath shape from a piece of cardboard.

I used hot glue to attach the circles to the cardboard. In some places I cheated and used half-circles:

The half-circles fit better in some places.

The last thing I did was to make cardstock hanger on the back where I could attach it to the front door.

And that's it! I'm tickled pink with my new wreath and I'm thinking that now I'm going to need to make one in Fall colors and one for Christmas too...
