Take the do-it-yourself approach with a weather-proof paper wreath. To make this, you'll need to pick up a foam or wire wreath form, weather-proof paper, acrylic paint or spray paint in two colors, and adhesive dots. Fold the weather-proof paper onto itself creating a conical. Use a bead of hot glue to keep each conical held together, then glue it in place on the wreath form. Add texture and shape by placing adhesive dots on the conicals, then use the spray paint to create an ombre effect with two shades of the same color. This can also be done by hand with a paint brush and acrylic paint.
When covered with a simple slipcover, a basic wooden headboard becomes an eye-catching design statement. In this bedroom, a bold black-and-white pattern adds modern appeal to a cottage-style space, furnished with a distressed white side table and a paper wreath.
To create the curled paper buds, cut the card stock or construction paper into 4-inch-by-4-inch squares, then fold the squares into a cone shape. Next, secure the cone-shaped paper to the wreath form with hot glue, ensuring each one is placed directly up against the other until the foam is completely concealed.
