How To: Eco-Friendly Wreath for Easter!
Looking for a fun and eco-friendly wreath for Easter? Look no further! I have an adorable wreath for you that’s made entirely of recycled materials!
What You Will Need:
1. Recycled cardboard. I used a pizza box.
2. Book pages
5. Glue. If you can, use eco-glue.
How To Do It:
1. Cut your pizza box into a circle. I used an embroidery hoop to make a perfect circle.
2. Make a smaller circle inside the larger circle like so:
3. Then, cut it out. You now have the base of your wreath.
4. Cut your book pages into thin strips. I crinkled my strips so that they would had some texture once I glued them to the cardboard. I wanted them to look like the filler inside of an Easter basket or a bird’s nest.
5. Glue your book page strips onto the cardboard “wreath.” I did mine in layers so that it would cover more of the cardboard base. I let one layer dry, and then I’d add another layer. It should look something like this once you’re finished:
6. While your book page strips are drying, draw and color some eggs onto your book pages (this would be perfect for your kids to do). Then, cut them out. Mine looked like this:
7. You will also need to write/cut out the phrase you would like to put on your wreath. I chose the word “welcome,” but you could also put “Happy Easter” or something along those lines.
8. Glue your eggs and your phrase onto your wreath.
Now your wreath is ready to be hung on your front door, your wall, or even above your mantle! Have you made an eco-friendly wreath before? Share it with us in our Green Crafts Showcase or on our Facebook page!
