Butterfly Bookpage Wreath

This is a combination of a couple different projects-rolled paper flowers and book page wreaths.  


It lacked something, so I added some butterflies I cut out of paint chips I had. Ha! I added a third project into this one.


Nice and bright for summer.  Maybe the colors will help people to notice it on my front door {although my husband didn't}.


I used some rolled up newspaper for my wreath form.  Because why would I  buy something when I could make it with stuff I already have for free?  Yea for being cheap green.


Update: If you use this method for making a wreath form, I recommend setting it somewhere rather than hanging it.  If you hang it, it won't keep it's shape. Just so you know.
