I made my first Loli Wreath while I was at my mother-in-law's house a couple of weeks back. I had used the retired Wicked Fun Designer paper. You can click ( Here ) to view my first one.
Now that I have had a little time to think about how I made the first one, I have made some changes. First I found a larger base made of wood which is used for a flower arrangement wreath. It makes a 12" wreath rather than the 9" wreath that I made the first time. This allows you to use a much larger Loli to make your wreath. I think it makes it look a little fuller than my original wreath.
As I'm getting ready for the Halloween season, I took this picture after I had my NEW Halloween Wreath on my front door.
I really love how this one turned out !! Now I'm probably going to be in trouble when my mother-in -law sees how this one turned out. I had a lot of fun making both of them. Next I want to do a Wreath using the Spice Cake Designer Paper for Fall and Thanksgiving.
Here's a little closer view.
EDITED: To make the Big Loli I used (2 ) strips of Designer Paper each strip measures 2 1/2 " x 12" for a total of 24", then scored every 1/2". To make the Smaller Loli I used ( 2 ) strips of Designer Paper each strip measures 1 1/2" x 12" for a total of 24", then scored every 1/2". So when you fold you do one strip starting by folding up and the second strip starting by folding down. Adhere together with snail and then I used the 1/8" circle hand punch at the top of each fold. You can group about 6 of them together at a time, so that the hole lines up. Then take Baker's Twine and thread through each fold to pull together and tie off. This will hold it together better for you. I punched a 1 3/4" Circle for each back and then decorate the fronts with different sizes of circles to make it a little sturdier. Hope that helps.
I found a link for the wooden 12 " flower base that I used. ( Here )
I used the Frightful Sight Designer Paper almost both sides of each sheet.
