Inexpensive Indoor Paper Wreath

kudzukweenJanuary 1, 2010

Use old book pages, or sheet music; I chose hymnal pages for this one. I aged them in a tea bath,spread on a cookie sheet and let dry.

Cut out a circle of cardboard for your wreath base, spread on some glue..either school glue or hot glue....and begin pressing handfuls of paper shreds into the glue. You may need two layers of shredded paper like me. Then add a bow or some little trims you like, glue on a hanger; I used a paper clip; and there you go! Great way to use an old worn paperback book or magazine.

Cute idea! This would also make a cute Easter wreath using grass instead of shred.

Nice idea!! I got a gift of fancy soaps that had shredded packaging material around the soaps! That will work too. Thanks for the idea. Jan
