While looking around the Internet at all the wonderful crafty inspiration out there, we ran across this project from T. Matthews Fine Art. It looked simple, used recycled items, and best of all, it looked pretty! So we had to try it out for ourselves and were so pleased with the results we knew we had to share it with you!
What you need:
- wreath form (we cut a square from a box! Yay recycling!)
- a magazine or even some cute paper
- hot glue gun
First, cut medium to medium large circles from the pages of your magazine (you could trace a circle first to make sure it's perfect but we just winged it). You'll need a LOT!
Once your spiral is fairly tightly wound, let it go and you will see how it is resembling a rose.
Fire up your hot glue gun and begin gluing your "roses" to your frame. Hold them down for a few minutes to make sure they hold.
Continue doing these steps until your wreath is completely covered! Just attach your ribbon to the back of the frame and in no time you'll have a fun and pretty wreath!
At this point you can spray paint it, but we left ours as-is. We like that little bits of the different colors peek out!
Happy Paper Rolling!
