Make a Rolled Paper Wreath

This wreath is colorful and stunning, and made of recycled magazine pages! Looks like it would be a fun project to do while you're watching some guilty-pleasure TV shows. This is a fun modern art accent, but would also be pretty as a frame for a photo, child's art, or a mirror. Project is by The Rag & Bone blog and found via Reycled Crafts. [full project instructions here]

Wrap the paper around a pencil or other long skinny item. Use some of your old magazine or catalog pages to make this. You can make your own round frame by wrapping wire around something round like a five gallon bucket.

Project Estimate:

  • Magazine or catalog pages, on hand
  • Wire, $1
  • Thread, $1 or on hand
  • Pencil, on hand

Total: $1 and up

    I really liked this idea, but the instructions were never put up for this item, so I was left to make my own version and blogged about it.

    @Kelly Grimes- can you link to your blog post? How did it turn out? I too was left wanting instructions…

    How do you attach the paper to the wire to make it all stay together?

  • Rachel said:

    I made this and I think it turned out okay considering there were no real instruction. Hot glue was my friend.
