One of our favorite Do It Yourself crafts this season is the Magazine Wreath. Not only is it easy, but it looks really freakin’ cool! Trust me; none of us are Martha Stewart here, so if we can manage to make this wreath, anyone can. 😉

If you’re ready to tackle this project all you need is:
Styrofoam wreath in the size of your choice
Hot glue gun
Old catalog or horrible book
Small piece of ribbon, depending how you would like to hang it
Best part is, you’ll have most of these items on hand already!

The tutorial I used (which is really great) can be found here: 

This particular blog even has a little video to help show you different ways to roll your paper. Not that it’s rocket science. The most important part of rolling your paper is to keep the top of the roll loose. Then you basically glue like crazy until that wreath is full and festive!

I chose to use an old catalog because I wanted a little touch of cheery color mixed in there. I also can’t rip apart books, even horribly written romance novels, the bookworm in me doesn’t have the heart. 😉

But no matter what your paper choice, once you finish this magazine wreath, everyone will want to know how you made it. It certainly is a looker for being recycled!
