~30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 26 - How To Make a Toilet Paper Roll Wreath!! ~

Hey all! I know I've been MIA for a few days, but I wanted to make it up to you by giving a tutorial on how to make a lovely wreath for any occasion out of - you guessed it - leftover toilet paper and paper towel rolls!  This wreath can be made for any holiday or occasion. Mine is a fall/Mabon wreath since that's the season where I live! It's fun, it's easy, and most importantly, it's eco-friendly. So, let's get started! 

You Will need: 
1. Scissors
2. A glue gun
3. Toilet paper rolls and/or paper towel rolls
4. A bowl, plate or other round object to shape your wreath
5. Your decorations

1. Fold the rolls in half so they are flattened and begin cutting them into even pieces.

2. Lay them out around your wreath in whatever shape you like - I made sort of a sun-burst type of shape, but you can mix it up! Glue the pieces together one by one.

3. When you are done gluing, take out the bowl and you should have a round (ish) shape that is held pretty solidly together!

4. If you have leftover roll pieces, you can take them and make a second layer - some people go all the way around again, but that looked too messy for me so I decided to make little "leaves".

5. Lay out your decorations where you want them and glue them down. Wait for it to dry and then hang the wreath wherever you like! Yay! Now you have your very own wreath :D You could also possibly not glue the decorations down and just reuse the wreath with different decorations if you really wanted to be eco friendly. :)
