As part of the 3 months Contentment Challenge that I am doing I finally went through a huge stack of old magazines. A lot of them I am going to donate however I was inspired to make something from them. I still had a Christmas decoration hanging on my door (gasp!) I swear it was the only decoration still up! I though that it would be fitting to make a wreath. This is a quick and super easy project that you can complete with items that you already have on hand.
What you will need:
- An old magazine
- Hot glue gun
1. Rip out whatever pages you want from your magazine. I tried to pull pages that had the most colors or details on them.
2. Roll each one into a cone, starting with the ripped side to make sure that it ends up on the inside and tape the end down.
3. Glue each one together until you have a full wreath.
4. Hang and enjoy! To hang it I just stapled a piece of jute twine to the inside of two of the cones. If your wreath is larger, you may need to add some support to the back to keep it from flopping forward. If this is the case simply cut a piece of cardboard from a cereal box or other box that you have lying around and glue it to the back.
