Make Your Own Paper Wreath for the Holidays

Happy Holidays! So sorry that I’ve been MIA for this past week, but finals are killing me and my motivation to do anything. As of today at 2 pm, I will be done with this semester, and honestly, I’m thrilled. But, for some reason, instead of all the studying I should have been doing, I’ve spent some of my time crafting away. If you saw my Vlogmas day 1 video, you’ll have seen this really awesome paper holiday wreath that I made. I also posted a picture on Instagram and have received countless questions on how I made it.

So, today I’m showing you exactly how I made my super festive holiday paper wreath! This will probably take you at most about 2 hours to complete, and it’ll cost you probably less than $10 depending on what supplies you have on hand. All you need is a stapler, some scissors, a bunch of green paper and a little (or a lot) or patience!

First off, let’s talk about what Blogmas and Vlogmas are. Essentially, Blogmas and Vlogmas are a 25 day challenge for online content creators. There’s no official requirements, but you’re supposed to publish something every single day from December 1st until Christmas Day (aka December 25th). It’s content full of holiday goodness and festive fun! I’m not quite sure where the idea originated, but people are integrating the challenge on so many different social platforms – blogs, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, you name it.

Freshman Year Taught Me…

Freshman year of college has come to a close, and I have learned so much! As I was writing this list, it seems like a lot of these things are negative, but they’re really not! They’re super important life lessons, and as we all know, life lessons are all rainbows and butterflies. Freshman year was difficult for me because I’m not one to engage in the typical college culture (aka Greek life and drinking). I mean I’m typically in bed and asleep by 10:30…even on weekends. So, here’s what freshman year taught me!

December was filled with so much stress and fun. I finished up my first round of college finals and I got to come home for Christmas. I usually say that “oh this month has flown by,” but this time, I feel like December has gone on for forever. Not that that’s a bad thing!
