Instructions
1. Cut the paper plate in half. Cut those half pieces to make quarters, and then once more to create eighths. You should end up with eight triangles.
2. Trim one of the triangle pieces, rounding the two bottom corners, making a leaf-like shape. Repeat with the rest of the pieces.
3. Apply a small line of hot glue to the outside of the wreath frame, and press one of the paper leaves in place. Repeat with all of the paper leaves.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 until paper leaves cover the entire edge of the wreath frame.
5. To make a second row of leaves, apply a line of hot glue directly to the bottom of the leaves and press in place. Position the leaves in the second row between the first to achieve a fuller look.
