Step 1. Cut 1″ strips out of your patterned papers. I used 14 different papers and cut 4 strips of each.
Step 2. Cut each strip into 3 pieces so you have a good assortment of 1″ x 4″ paper strips.
Step 3. Using your glue gun, glue the ends of one strip together, creating a loop. Repeat this step with every strip.
Step 5. Continue gluing paper loops onto the wreath, keeping them as even as possible. You also may need to add in extra papers to fill in gaps.
Step 6. Use the burlap ribbon to make a loop with a long piece that hangs down into the center of the wreath. Glue the ribbon to the back of the wreath and to the nest.
