Recycled Magazine Flower Wreath

By: Christine Harper

Don't feel guilty about your addiction to magazines. When you're done soaking in the images and words, create a Recycled Magazine Flower Wreath. Recycling craft ideas help you cut down on your trash haul and allow you to express your creativity. In an afternoon, you can create a one of a kind piece that looks great on a door or wall. Recycling project ideas don't get much better than this, so be sure to make a few and display them all over. You'll love the whimsical look of this eco-friendly project. My Husband was cleaning up the house when I was at work, and he discovered my old fashion magazines that I had around the house. He had mentioned it when I had gotten home, so I began to got through the pile of magazines I had... I was tearing out fashion pictures I wanted to keep from the issue, and I took one out of the pile I didn't want, and tore it in half and crumpled it up, to my amazement it resembled a flower!!! I was so intrigued by the flower that I began brain storming for a project in mind. In conclusion of my surprisingly, recycled magazine paper's flower I created by chance, I named my project "Mag Flower Wreath".

Intermediate

Materials:

  • 2 face masks
  • Styrofoam wreath
  • 2 double sheets (any color) of tissue paper
  • 60 magazines pages
  • 4 oz. bottle of Clear Gel Tacky Glue
  • Krylon spray paint can
  • Command Adhesi Strips

 

Instructions:

  1. First you put on a face mask for safety, the spray paint fumes are strong. Take Styrofoam wreath, start to spray paint it (use any color). Spray paint the whole wreath. OPTIONAL-- If you don't want to spray paint the wreath take tissue paper 2 double sheets and wrap around Styrofoam and use glue to secure. Let it dry completely. Take the face mask off.
     
  2. Take a magazine and begin to tear out pages (a total of 60), then each page of the magazine and tear in half (don't worry if pages are not even.) Take each half page and crumble it in your hand, one by one. It will look like a flower.
     
  3. Take your glue and start to glue on the flowers to the wreath. Glue on each flower on front side of the wreath, two rows all around. Turn over the wreath and continue to glue the flowers two rows in the inner circle of the wreath. Let it dry completely.
     
  4. Place a face mask on and take the spray paint can and begin to spray paint the back of the wreath and continue painting the front, middle, and the sides of the wreath. Let it dry completely, and take off face masks and dispose of the face mask.
     
  5. When completely dry you can use the Command Adhesive strips to your wall to hang up your finished wreath.
