Paper Wreath Rosette Tutorial

I saw a tutorial on Paper Wreaths here.   I thought, okay, but I'm really not into the book page look on my wall.  Then I thought about spray paint, my new craze.  But could you really spray paint paper?
I tried it out and now have 4 funky little wreath Rosettes.  I'm obsessed with Rosettes for my hair, my shirt, my bag and anything else.  Why not a Rosette for your wall?  So that's what I'm calling these, my Paper Wreath Rosettes. And guess what?  I spent $7 for supplies (not including spray paint).  

So, first buy a foam wreath at Dollar Tree along with a book from Dollar Tree or your collection that you would love to rip apart.  I couldn't bring myself to buy a bible, but a cheesy novel worked great.  The more pages and the stiffer the page the better.  I bought spray paint at Lowe's.  The black and white are only $1.  They have a large selection of cute colors for about $3 a can.  (better selection than Walmart).  I also bought a primer and primed them first, just to be safe.  You will also need a hot glue gun and plenty of glue.
Let's get started.... 

Then spray paint.  Like I said, I primed first.  It took about 3 different layers to fully cover all the writing.

Cute eh?   I love how they look metal or wooden.
