Frightful Sights Halloween Loli Wreath

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.
