Magazine Wreath

What a joy to sit and relax on a Saturday bright afternoon with a magazine..:). Well, I was relaxed for just 20 minutes, till my little one got up and started to cry. But that's how long it takes to make this wreath. And ain't that adorable.

  •  Cut a cardboard in the shape of the wreath.
  •  Take an old magazine and cut a few pages into strips. Just play with the thickness of the strips you like. I didn't even care to make all the strips equal, just eye-balled it.
  • Take a strip of paper  and bring the small edge together and glue or staple it, so that it forms a loop. Repeat it for all the other strips of paper.
  • Then start gluing or stapling the loops to the cardboard wreath starting from the outermost circle. And that's it!

  1. Cleverly done! I love the random mix of colors and text. I'm wondering if I sorted the images by color then did a "planned" wreath...hmmm. Even one with just black and white text would look cool. Thanks for the inspiration. Love it!

    1. Thanks! I like the idea of all text too.. Thanks for visiting

  2. Cool wreath! I've never seen a magazine wreath before, and I like it!!!

  3. I love a good recycling project. Awesome! :-)

    1. Glad you like it Crystal! Thank you for visiting..:)

  4. what a great idea to use up magazines... would be fun to collect colors and create a one color or two tone wreath!! I've got a great cutting edge stencil giveaway going... I think you could use $50 in free stencils :o)

  5. I totally agree, two-tone wreath would be really cool

    and oh yeah! I could really use the free stencils...:)
    Thank you so much for stopping by...

  6. Really clever and cute for spring/summer.

  7. I'd like to do this with an old (broken, discarded) book! The yellowed pages and old font would look fabulous. And maybe covering the edge with a grosgrain ribbon or something to "finish" it. Nice, thanks for the idea!!

    1. That would be great too.. I love the look of the old books too..:)

  8. Do you know approximately how wide the wreath is? Great idea...thanks for sharing!
