UP-CYCLED CHRISTMAS WREATH
This year we decided my make an up-cycled Christmas wreath using materials from our recycling bin!
MATERIALS: Cardboard, bottle tops, pipe cleaners, wooden beads, paint, scissors and string.
DIRECTIONS: Begin by cutting a large circle from the cardboard to make the base of your wreath. Punch holes around the circle so you can attach your decorations.
We painted some of our cardboard with festive colour paint splatters. Then once it is dry cut out lots of leaf and circle shapes. Punch a hole in each shape.
Thread a bead onto a pipe cleaner and fold in half then thread on circles and leaf shapes.
Thread one end of your pipe cleaner through a hole on your base and then twist ends together at the back to secure. Repeat the process until you have filled your wreath with pretty flowers.
We also made another less 'traditional' wreath using bright colours and plastic bottle tops.
