DIY Cardboard Flower Wreath

DIY recycled cardboard wreath

I was excited to make a recycled cardboard wreath! My candy-cane wreath is getting old so it is time for a new one. I never really cared much for wreaths until I made that one, but now I kind of enjoy seeing something colorful on my door when I come home. I am easily amused.

So, for this craft you will need a bunch of cardboard rolls. I think I used 12? I’ve been planning to make this wreath for a few weeks now, so I have been saving.

cutting cardboard rolls

Step 1:

Cut your toilet paper rolls so the cuts are about 1/2″ wide. You should get about 5 pieces per roll.

This wreath is great for summer 🙂 I know it isn’t quite summer yet but I’m hopeful.

  1. I’ve wanted to do something with cardboard rolls.. I see so much awesome stuff from them but my edges always look shoddy. Maybe because I use the table paper rolls from my work..maybe they are thicker?

    I might try again now that I have a great tutorial! 🙂

    • I’m glad you like it! Take a picture and send it to me if you make one please! I would love to see how yours turns out!
