You won't want to recycle all of your toilet paper rolls after you see this awesome wreath you can make using them!
I love making something different or new with recycled items. This is how you make something ugly and we throw away everyday into something to use in your home. Holiday wreaths do not have be just the traditional colors. I used lots of color and left over trinkets to make this wreath in an area in my home that needed a pop of fun color for Christmas. It hangs on a boring door that leads into my pantry to the garage. It makes me smile everyday. It is very inexpensive to make and will last for years.
Two weeks ago my husband was cleaning our room, knocked into the dresser and our mirror, which at that point was dangerously just leaning against the wall instead of being attached to it, fell on his head and broke. After ensuring he was fine (a few scratches here and there, and lots of glass on the floor!) inspiration struck and I realized I can repurpose the frame into something else! An artistic friend of mine had shown me in the past all these different things you can do with cut up toilet paper rolls (there are also plenty of ideas on Hometalk as well!) and so I decided to get to work!
I love recycling items to create craft projects! I recently attended a community cookout and managed to collect lots and lots of empty beer and soda cans. It's a great way to repurpose discarded or unwanted items into creating some of my crafting ideas. I've had a couple of projects swirling around in my thoughts - one of which is a candleholder. A candle holder that looks chic and modern but so easy to make! And the best part - you can use it indoors or out!
My galvanized watering cans were collected over the years from flea markets and antique malls, some European, but most made in USA. They’re a rag-tag bunch, complete with dents and missing roses. While I love to find them in mint condition with their roses intact, I’m fond of those that were well used, imagining all the flowers and gardens they watered. I hung part of my collection on the corner of my Potting Shed a couple of years ago, where a rain chain would hang, but to be decorative rather than functional.
Like so many of you, I love mason jars and use them quite often in decorating. But I find that I use a ton of the Mason jars but never the lids. Does that happen to you? I literally had a bucket full of Mason jar lids. My daughter and a couple of friends are moving into their first apartment for their Senior Year of College. They are going with beach themed decor, so I decided to make coasters from the mason jar lids.
I've taken a blown glass tequila bottle and repurposed it into a home decor accessory! Love this project? You can buy your own by clicking the link below. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
