Eco Wreath

 

Guest post by Nicola and Sue from Buddies Babies and Biscuits

You will need:

  • The cardboard roll from your Christmas wrapping paper
  • Paint
  • A paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon or any other embellishment for decoration

 

Method:

  1. Paint the wrapping paper tube – inside and out, (we did green on the outside and gold on the inside) and leave to dry.
  2. Cut the roll into slices – approx. 2 cm thick.
  3. Pinch the slices at each end to form a leaf shape.
  4. Glue the leaves together in groups of 6 to make a flower.
  5. Make 8 flowers and glue them together in a circle shape to form a wreath.
  6. Add a ribbon for hanging and a bow at the bottom for decoration.
  7. Hang up and have a fabulous eco-Christmas!
