craft-tacular

Inspired by this idea idea of using magazine pages to make a wreath that I saw on Happy Mundane.
And this one from Martha Stewart (via Abbey Goes Design Scouting)

I made this wreath using the stuff in our recycling bin.  




It took awhile to cut out all the leaves, (West Elm and Williams Sonoma catalogs are surprisingly not colorful, and it took me a surprisingly long time to figure out that gardening catalogs really, really are) but I am happy with the end result.

That is absolutely beautiful! Very colourful! Great recycling project. And I agree with Chiara, It's way better than Martha's!

This wreath is so fun! I love the colors especially now that we are in the gray season.

So cool! I might have to try this. I wonder how colorful my old issues of Real Simple are?
