This Week's Project:
Toilet Paper Roll Wreaths
Frannie loves holiday wreaths! She thinks they are a neat way to add a festive touch to a room. Frannie loves that she can use her old toilet paper rolls to create beautiful wreaths for her home!
- 9 toilet paper rolls
- green paint
- small red circles (think buttons, construction paper, etc. Frannie used scraps of red foam)
- string or ribbon
- Collect 9 toilet paper rolls. You can also use 4 paper towel rolls or 1 wrapping paper roll.
- Cut the toilet paper rolls into smaller pieces - about 3/4" wide. You'll need 5 smaller pieces to make one flower, and you'll need a total of 45 pieces to make 9 flowers.
- Paint each piece green.
- Arrange the pieces the way you would like them to look. You can use the photo as an example. Then, glue your pieces together.
- Adorn your green wreath with red "berry" accents. You can use red buttons, red circles cut out from construction paper, or anything else you can think of! Place them around the wreath according to taste and glue them in place.
- Congratulations! You have just made an Upcycled Toilet Paper Roll Wreath! Hang it somewhere special to add a lovely holiday touch to a room.
Add layers to your wreath! If you have extra toilet paper rolls, you can create more flowers to add more layers and dimension to your wreath. Get creative and have fun!
