I came across this lovely craft idea for making a gorgeous wreath using repurposed centers from toilet paper, wrapping paper or paper towel cardboard rolls.
green acrylic paints
Red acrylic paint
Paint the tubes green and let them dry. Cut them into 3/4″ wide strips, flatten them to give them a seam like a flower petal and glue them together in groups of 5 like this:
Once you get that done, form them into a wreath and glue them together to form a large circle.
Form a smaller circle, gluing the flowers together and then stack them onto the larger circle, making layers.
Glue small red beads in clusters of 3 throughout the wreath to look like holly berries
That’s it! Very easy, yet elegant.
