Even though the method is the same, his wreath looks quite different to the one I made of doilies because the paper is rectangular instead of round. I’ve seen wreaths made from book pages very similar to this selling in shops for a few hundred dollars. I can’t remember how much the Chinese paper is, but I would guess it would only be a few dollars for enough to make this wreath. And it’s easy. Give it a go.
I hope you enjoy making it. Email me photos!
The garland is so easy it hardly needs a tutorial… but here goes.
You’ll need squares/rectangles of paper, a needle and embroidery thread (or similar), decorative tape (I used Japanese washi paper tape).
Gather the paper squares from the centre like you did for the wreath. Thread the needle and pass it through the centre of a paper square.
Wrap a small piece of tape around the thread on the under side of the paper so it doesn’t pull through.
Wrap a small piece of tape around the centre top of the paper so it will keep its shape.
Repeat until you have your garland to the desired length.
