Go Green Wreath
You will need:
-- Twigs (flexible ones) We collected ours the other day from the woods near our house
-- Recyclable items. (It can be anything) I used: Cardboard egg carton, pop bottle caps, milk jug lids, plastic bag from fruits, large yoghurt container lid, milk jug & the shower scrubby.
-- Paint and paint brush
Instructions: (with adults help if required)
-- Bend twigs into circular shape to create a wreath (tie as required)
-- Using the glue (glue gun works best) decorate wreath with recycled materials.
-- The shower scrubby for the 'ribbon' on the wreath
-- The yoghurt lid painted with the recycling sign
-- Colourful circular accents are the milk jug lids
-- The 'Go Green' sign was painted on a plastic piece cut from the milk jug
-- To make the 'pop top flowers' we cut 2 sections of a cardboard egg carton, painted the inside green. Glued a circular piece of clear fruit bag plastic to the centre to create a petal effect and then glued a bottle top in the centre as the flowers center.
Voila - we had our wreath. Be creative there are limitless possibilities to creating a wreath with a recycled theme.
Enjoy displaying your wreaths so everyone will know that you are 'Green'.
