Royal Wedding Paper Crown Wreath

First of all I want to say how glad I am that the sun is shinning today. After some horrific storms pounding the south the last couple of days and no sleep, it is nice to see it calm. Tornadoes seem to be around a lot more than they used to be and hanging out in the closet is not fun. I think I need to remodel it to have it a bit more comfortable for these days!lol


The Royal Wedding is going to happen tomorrow morning. Yes I will be getting up to watch it! I watched when Diana walked down the isle and I will watch Catherine! I am a romantic after all! I think it is something special....history in the making....and lets face it there isn't much good news to watch anymore and this is happy press!

So in honor of the Royal Wedding I made a paper crown wreath.



I started with some scrapbook paper. My fave at the moment is a script paper. I had a round wire already but you can use cardboard or a hanger. I began cutting strips the same size to make crowns.





I glued the ends to form the crowns and glued it to the wire ring.





I got my wax sealing tool dripped hot wax and stamped a fluer de les on every other crown to give it an old world look.










This process should have been down before a made the strip into the crown. It would have been easier flat.




I made a small display around it.





It needed something else to me so I added a pearl necklace and an initial to it. This is another look you can have.



You can add so many things to this. I like working with the jewelry adding the pearls or even a pretty pin would be nice.  It's up to you! Notice the "C" on the candle. My daughter's name is Catherine also. A great name I think!
Are you gonna watch the wedding?

Very pretty and clever. I am looking so forward to the Royal Wedding!
My daughter is also named Catherine. She is the same age as Kate and not married. I wonder if she can find a Prince?
