Another Scrapbook Paper Reuse Idea

Another Scrapbook Paper Reuse Idea

Want yet another idea for reusing your leftover scrapbook paper? This one is simple and quick.

With some of your favorite 12×12 paper sheets, you can make this Pretty Paper Wreath from Glue Dots in no time.  Perfect for fall and winter, this DIY fall wreath is a great way to welcome people into your home during the holiday season.

Pretty Paper Wreath


  • 1 Styrofoam 12 inch wreath
  • 6 sheets of 12×12 papers (Papers used were GCD Studios – Paris Nights)
  • 1 ribbon
  • 2 flowers
  • 1 box of Craft Glue Dots


  1. Cut 1×6 inch strips with all your paper.
  2. Use a Glue Dot to hold both ends together – it is important that you do not fold the paper in half.
  3. This is the part that takes the longest, adhere the flat part of the paper to the foam wreath with Glue Dots, overlapping 1/4 to 1/2 of the paper loop before it.
  4. Do this until you fill your wreath, tucking in extras if you missed a spot.
  5. Sometimes I even folded the loops up a little, once it was stuck to the wreath to make it look fuller.
  6. After the wreath is covered add some flowers (or whatever embellishments you want to use) and a ribbon on the back!
  7. Original source here.

I wish there was a video that would demonstrate the steps 2 and 3, but I think you get the general idea. And even though this says it’s great for fall and winter, who is to say you can’t do a summer wreath. Or spring for that matter!
