Recycle magazines and turn them into a fantastic magazine wreath!! This project is simple, inexpensive, and easy. But…it does take time! So…find your favorite movie on Netflix and get to it! The finished product looks fantastic for fall. Or for Christmas. You decide. And don’t even tell me you don’t have any magazines to cut up and recycle. Girl…as if! If you’re anything like me, you have dozens lying around the house.
To Make Your Magazine Wreath:
- Cut a cardboard “donut” shape the size of the wreath you want. You will not want the leaves to overhang very much so the circle should be very close to the size wreath you want to end up with.
- Cut the magazine into leaf shapes of various sizes. Make A LOT!
- Glue the leaves to the cardboard. Be sure to cover the cardboard completely. And add many layers. (Try to attach all parts of the leaf to the cardboard and each other or the leaves will droop over when hung on the wall)
- if desired— curl the edges of the leaves with a pencil (wrap the tip around the pencil and roll). This will give your magazine wreath more dimension.
Heads-up…the wreath looks best when there are many layers of leaves on it! So, when you think you have enough…add more!
This recycled magazine wreath will be part of the fall tour of my home which debuts on Monday. Am I ready? No. Will I be? After several pots of coffee, pom poms, glitter, and glue…yes. So…I hope to see you there! Monday. Here. NellieBellie.
