Recycle Fun: DIY Paper Christmas Wreath

This was made from free stuff laying around.

Leftover packing paper from a delivery. Some of it can be used as wrapping paper. But we had a ton.

I started twisting the paper.

I tied off sections.

I coiled it around itself, like a coiled rope.
 
I had to lean against the paper, against the counter to make it "obey me".

I cut off that part sticking out at the end.


So far, so good.
I sprayed "clear" adhesive on some California pepper berries, pine cones,
and dried leaves I found outside. I painted the pine cones for fun.

I recommend that you're not cheap with the hot glue.

 

I think it turned out rather nice. I think I could possibly have used more little doo-dads.
