Echo Park Wreath

This is my first stab at a paper cone wreath.
There will be more, I am sure.
I used Echo Park paper and embellishments.
...and Cassie'd it up with some super fab sequins.
I am going to try some smaller versions of this wreath and use them as tags for gifts.
I think the smaller will be easier to maneuver.
I made this with 6 x 6 paper...because I wanted to start with a small one and then use 12 x 12 for the one for gifts...um, no.
This is a little over a foot wide.
OMG!  Can you imagine one that is almost 3 feet wide...I might have to do one to cover a wall or something. LOL!
