How to Make the Fabulous Wreath from Toilet Paper Rolls
Flatten down each roll to prepare for cutting. This will form a fold at both the top and bottom to create the leaf shape.
Using your ruler, mark cutting lines depending on what thickness you want the wreath to be. The example shown used 1.5 inches, but you can go with whatever you think looks best. Cut along these guidelines to create as many individual leaf shapes as you can.
You will end up with a massive pile of toilet paper roll leaves.
Now start arranging the pieces into a wreath shape. Use a salad plate as a template to line the pieces up against. Lay a single ring of pieces around the plate to form the wreath's base.
Hot glue the pieces together to form a complete circle. This will form the inner edge of the wreath. Once this ring is complete, arrange the rest of the pieces around it in any fashion you like.
Arrange all the pieces in one layer at a time. Glue all the pieces in that layer before moving on to the next layer.
You could stop here, paint it, or add glitter and ribbon; the possibilities are endless. The wreath featured here was decorated using wax paper flowers, tan gross grain ribbon bows, and a few gold ornaments.
You might end up with extra leaves from your cardboard tubes, but don't let those go to waste! You could use them to make a mini wreath, or cut them into thinner widths to make gift wrapping adornments.
Be sure to hang your wreath indoors as it is not waterproof.
