We bring a lot of boxes,
and other papers including school papers to the recycling center.
I've been thinking that it would be fun to see if I could make Christmas decorations from what goes through our kitchen and pantry. I tried to make a big tree out of newspaper today. Hmmm. Didn't work. But, I haven't given up.
and her inspiration led me back to my recyclables.
Now, I have a newspaper wreath!
I used a lid to one of my big bowls to trace a pattern on a piece of paperboard from a pop box and a smaller lid to trace a circle in the center to cut out.
Then with a hot glue gun, I collaged pieces of the classifieds onto the wreath base. Continuing with strips of newspaper and the glue gun I fashioned the paper flowers.
I folded more pieces of the newspaper to form a bow, again using the hot glue gun.
I've been wanting to make something out of newspapers for so long. I think it was in a store display that I first saw a newspaper dress and thought it was so cool.
Yeah, sorry about the corny blog title...I couldn't help myself.
