Instructions

  1. To make strips from Green Mulberry paper, use wet paintbrush to draw wiggly line across paper about two inches from edge. Grasp Mulberry paper on each side of wet line and gently pull apart to make a 2″ x 12″ strip. (Note: Use plenty of water for ease in tearing.) Repeat to make several paper strips. 
  2. Apply glue stick to wreath and press paper strip onto glue. (Note: Dampen and tear (pull) strips to shorten as needed to fit wreath.) Repeat applying glue and overlapping paper strips going in various directions, to entirely cover wreath. Let dry. 
  3. To make circular indentations, press end of dowel approximately 1/8″ deep into wreath. Repeat to randomly make approximately-evenly spaced indentations, noting that some may extend beyond edge of wreath. Use craft knife to carefully cut and lift paper out of the indentations. (Note: This will leave white circles that will be covered with other papers. If you put tissue paper over colored paper, the color is muted.) 
  4. Use paper punch to cut Orange and Pink Mulberry paper circles. Arrange circle colors in indentations, remove one at a time, apply glue stick to foam and replace circle. In a well-ventilated area, cover work area with old newspapers. Lightly spray two coats of glitter spray. Let dry. 
  5. Use glue gun to attach front of mirror to back of wreath. To hang mirror, apply adhesive Velcro® strips to back of mirror,  according to package directions.
