hi dearies! look at what i made this weekend! a quick and easy magazine wreath that was so fun to make. you could use lots of different materials to give it a different look too- old sheet music, pages from a vintage book, even pictures! i tried to put the seemingly endless supply of holiday catalogs to use- here’s how:
-a few magazines (or other material of your choice)
i cut the cardboard out by tracing a big round baking pan then a smaller plate inside- then used an exacto knife to cut the wreath out.
while letting the glue gun warm up- you can start ripping out the pages that you want to use. i tried using the brightly colored ones, and then some white ones to calm it down a bit.
rolling them in half, i stapled about 5 together at a time. if you can see, i then bent back the ends to give some sort of a surface to apply the glue to. after you have your bundles of five or so pages, start gluing them around the wreath. just be mindful of maintaining your ‘inner circle’ and i don’t think there’s any way you could go wrong- it’s as easy as that!
