That sounds kind of scary, right?
After we made our tp roll stars last month I started thinking about trying a wreath.
I don’t know why.
It kinda turned out the way I envisioned it in my head.
Somewhere along the way the lines got kind of weird and the perfectionist in me (I bet Suzie H. would swear that side of me doesn’t really exist!) keeps staring at the imperfect circles trying to figure out where I went wrong.
But I think I like it anyway.
The best part about this bad boy was that it required nothing but tp rolls (since I have to change all the tp rolls in the house it’s easy to collect them…) and a glue gun.
Smash the tp rolls flat, creasing the edges as much as possible, then cut in 1″ strips.
I laid them out using a round bowl as a guide. This was supposedly to keep my circle nice and even. Whatev.
Hot glued each piece to the next.
Repeat x two.
Then I added one of the tissue paper flowers I salvaged from the Christmas wrapping wreckage.
I figure I might as well use them again if they don’t get totally mangled beyond recognition.
It’s not perfect.
My projects rarely are. (Now that, Suzie H. would probably agree with!)
But it’s doing a pretty good job of cheering up my little craft room/nook right now.
