Snowflake Wreath Craft from Cardboard Tubes

10:29 AM

To keep with the crafty side of things here on the blog this holiday season, I've have a creative and fun wreath tutorial to share with you made from toilet paper tubes. With a little paint and some creative designing, this is just the thing I needed to add some holiday cheer to my hallway.




I have been saving toilet paper and paper towel tubes for a couple of months and even had my mother pitch in some since I knew I'd need a lot. After cutting a whole shopping bag full of rolls and using them in other craft projects, I cannot begin to tell you how many I needed for this project, but each snowflake uses 10 pieces and there are 11 snowflakes on this wreath. So, let's get to it!

What You Will Need:

  • Toilet Paper/Paper Towel Tubes
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Craft Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Stapler (optional)

Instructions:

First, gather your rolls and cut in uniform sizes. I made my pieces roughly 1'' thick. Once they are all cut, start creating your design. I opted for the snowflake look, but there are others you can choose.



After gluing the pieces together, allow to dry. I did 11 snowflakes and painted 5 white with craft paint. Don't mind the messy fingers. :)


On the other 6, I used a gold paint pen to add just a little color to the sides of the snowflakes. Here you can see the difference. It's subtle, but I think it looks better than leaving them plain. Allow paint to dry.



I used a stapler to attach each snowflake to one another. You can use glue, but I found this to be a quicker method. I connected the plain snowflakes together into one wreath and the white ones into another wreath form. I then stacked them on top of each other and used thin string to hold them together also to save a little time. You can glue these babies together if you wish.



You can purchase the supplies I used below.

This is the final look and I love the way it dresses up my plain hallway wall. It is just the right size for the space and has that rustic Christmas look that I love!



Have you crafted with toilet paper tubes before? What did you create?

  3. I've seen this done before but not as pretty as yours. I like the way you layered the snowflakes for the 3D look. Stopping by from Pin Junkie. We would love for you to come over and share with us at the Home Matters Linky Party. #homematters
