1. Draw a circle 12" in diameter on cardboard with a second circle in the center approximately 10" in diameter. Cut out the ring. Repeat and make two additional cardboard rings. Stack and glue them together.
2. Cut strips of newspaper about 1-1/2" wide and wrap around the stacked rings. Attach to the cardboard using the white glue.
3. Cover work surface with a plastic tablecloth and put on rubber gloves.
4. Create three dye baths by mixing 2 tbsp of each color of dye with 2 quarts of very hot 140? water. Immerse each sheet of newspaper quickly in a hot dye bath and hang them to dry.
5. While the dyed newspaper is drying, draw and cut out a 3-1/2" leaf template from the leftover cardboard.
6. Once the dyed newspaper is dry, fold it in half and trace the leaf pattern onto it. Continue to trace the leaf shapes until the whole sheet of newspaper is covered.
7. Cut out each leaf and fold in half lengthwise. This gives the leaf a three-dimensional look.
8. Start attaching the leaves to the cardboard one at a time with a dab of glue on the bottom tip of each leaf. Working around the wreath, glue the leaves in an overlapping fashion. When reaching the end, slide the tip of the last leaves under the first leaves for a continuous ring.
9. Spray the wreath with a clear acrylic spray to seal the dye. Spray in multiple light coats for full coverage.
10. Glue a paper clip to the back of the wreath as a hanger.
11. If desired: add some accents like beads to simulate berries or a paper bow.
