Looking for a creative and inexpensive way to spruce up your space for the holidays? Try this easy to make Newspaper Wreath. All you need is newspaper, scissors, a hot glue gun and imagination.
How-To: This wreath is created by layering a series of paper flowers. To make a flower, cut a 4″ x 4″ square from three pages of newspaper. Fold the stack in accordion fashion. Trim with pinking shears. Twist floral wire around center. Spread paper petals and clip wire. Using a hot-glue gun, attach flower. Repeat steps until wreath base is covered; you will need about 40 flowers. To make the bow, cut five 1 1/2″ x 12″ paper strips. Form a loop with each strip, and gather up in a bouquet; secure with wire. Then make 1 1/2″ x 5″ streamers in accordion fashion; hot glue to back of bow. Secure bow with streamers to bottom center of wreath. Voila! You have created a festive addition to your holiday decor.
