by Denise Hahn

use Petaloo flowers to melbas this cute upscaled wreath

Supplies

  • 10 Empty toilet paper rolls
  • hot glue gun and sticks
  • scissors
  • cardboard or chipboard
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    cut a strip of lightweight chipboard or cardboard in a strip one inch wide. I took two strips about 8 inches each and combined them to make a 4.5-5 inch diamteter circle

    Step 2

    my inner circle is 4.5 inches- you can really make this any size. Hot glue together.

    Step 3

    now a TP roll is a little more than 4 inches wide. Press it flat- cut roll in half , then cut the halves in half. Or you can measure about an inch each piece. I say EYEBALL IT!

    Step 4

    you should start to have a bunch of these by now!

    Step 5

    now you can eyeball it again, but I suggest making a dot about one inch apart on the inner ring- to use as a guideline

    Step 6

    now, add a little line of glue on the ring below each dot and glue the TP rings on. The side I am showing is the back- make sure you press each flat

    Step 7

    here is the right side- see how they line up all perfectly even!

    Step 8

    go all the way around

    Step 9

    Start the next layer, and put another round of rings between the ones you just played down I used a dot of glue 1/4 inch down on each ring, again keeping the wreath flat with the back facing up

    Step 10

    this is an example of where I put the glue for this part

    Step 11

    Finished second row

    Step 12

    for the last row, I add in the ring and hot glue where I am pointing out on the wreath- just one dab

    Step 13

    now if you kept it flat and face down, when you pick it up, it should look nice and even like this one!

    Step 14

    this one I left "naked" and added some Petaloo Burlap flowers to. petaloo.com

    Step 15

    i added some vintage buttons for additional embellishment

    Step 16

    or you can spray paint any color- this one I used a flat black and decorated for halloween.
