4. Recycled Wreath
Before you get rid of those natural-coloured egg cartons, think about reusing them to make a gorgeous Christmas wreath.
To make: use the flat lid part of the cartons to cut out a series of flat, feathered leaf shapes. Cut the cup parts of the egg cartons into three-dimensional flower shapes with three, four, five or more petals. Cut a wreath shape from rigid cardboard or foamcore board. Use hot glue to attach the base layer of flat leaves to the wreath shape, and then build up the scene with the three-dimensional flower shapes.
5. Personalised Wreath
One woman shared to Facebook her striking DIY wreath with a light-up personalised letter. "Couldn't find a wreath I liked this year. Cut and wrap a burlap table runner around a wire hoop," she wrote.
Attach the decorations with hot glue gun and voila you have a wreath that oozes homey charm. A very merry Christmas to you!
