Origami Christmas Wreath

I am a real fan of folded paper decorations right now. Remember my Peace Doves??
You've got to try this craft. Here's a video I found on you tube. Bear in mind, this lady totally calls me boring in the beginning of the video (@45 seconds). And, I am still supporting her. Aren't I nice?!?!Yup, I'm nice. 


Not too bad, eh?? I still have a hard believing she made 100 of these in 4 hours. Maybe I'm just a perfectionist, but it took me a lot longer 2:40 to make each one (did I just do my math right?! That could be a first!!).
For my wreaths, I included a very NON-BORING holly sprig and burlap button. How'd ya like dem apples, lady??
Awww, yeah.

  13. Very easy! I love it - and I have some parchment paper, and I am definitely going to steal your boring idea (haha!) and print off some sheet music to do my wreaths. Thanks so much!
