DECOR REDO #6 NEWSPAPER PEACOCK STARBURST WREATH
SUNDAY, JULY 24, 2011
THIS was my FAVORITE REDO!!!
It was by far the most time consuming but totally worth it.
I like to call it a redo because I reused & repurposed EVERYTHING!!!!!
I stumbled onto this craft on the Michael's website while searching for plate hangers(different project/room).
Its a starburst Paper Wreath
I realized I hadn't even given my focal wall any real thought, as to what was going to be displayed there. And then this appears! Thank you Lord!
I fell in love with the idea but NOT the having to buy special papers for it part.....
so my mind started workin'!
What could I use that I already had OR could get for free?
I went through our recycling bin but didn't have enough.
On my next trip to the church,
I opened up the FREE newspaper "stand" which sits outside the building
and took all the old papers that had fallen through the shelf, onto the bottom.
So newspapers it was but with a twist!
The only thing I DID buy was the Styrofoam ball I would need BUT not at full price haha, you should know me by now, I found them at the thrift store! PATIENCE PAYS :)
|STYROFOAM BALLS $.74 + tx|
These other items I purchased on the same thrift trip which I will be using in my room.
Long Curtains for $6.98 +tx for the set & a lamp for $1.24 +tx which I have since replaced.
As per the website, you roll the paper and tape. THIS TOOK A WHILE
The hot gun was literally steaming.
I accidentally laid my finger down on a glued spot and instantly felt pain!
OWWW! When I yanked my hand up, the skin was missing :/
Almost done just needed the styrofoam ball and some decorations.
Those I'll show on final day :)
I used 2 of the VIA "envelopes", cut the orange parts off and put the brown part inside of the other.
This was going to be where the nail would hang from.
Of course I glued it on upside down, I quickly removed it and repositioned it.
