My 2nd Origami Wreath


Today I also have my 2nd origami wreath to share - a more elegant version. I made the mistake of putting it on my door before I took photos so I did not get any of this wreath against a black background as I intended, to really show up it's gold sparkle.

If you are wondering why I put this on my door when I already had my first wreath on there, it was because the first one fell down! I didn't have the hanger on the back attached properly and this afternoon there was a knock on my door and when I opened it there stood a neighbor with my wreath in her hand to tell me she found it laying at the base of the door. :<)

I had just finished this one so I hung it on the door instead - not thinking that I had no photos taken of it yet at that time. Oh well, it still looks pretty even hanging against that awful brown fake wood door. :<) Another neighbor came by as I was taking these photos and she liked it! :<) One really can't get away with much where I live - someone is always somewhere!

To create the flowers, I punched them from a gold paper and added gold Stickles around all of the edges of each flower, layered them and then added a drop of the Stickles to the center of the top flower.

The ferns were punched from a printed paper and the gold Stickles added to all of the stems. Each flower was glued to two ferns with a glue dot and then to the wreath and in between the flowers I glued two ferns and added three dots of gold stickles on top at the base of the ferns.

You can see the depth of the wreath and this time I left the center open. This is another of the smaller ones and it measures 6" across when finished.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you enjoyed seeing this fancier version. :<)

It's sure is beautiful! You've put so much work into it. The details are awesome if I haven't read I'd have thought the ferns were parts of the papers. Beautiful done!
