1. Pick your frame

For this project, I used a Plaid wood canvas panel for my background. Instead of using the front side of the project I flipped it over and will be using the backside giving the illusion of a frame.

2.  Paint your frame

2. Paint your frame

I used Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint in the color Cascade. I painted the entire frame and then used a paper towel to wipe off the excess. I let that dry completely before moving on.

4.  Cut a shape out of the recycled paper

3. Pick your recycled paper for the craft

Some ideas for recycled paper options for this craft include

  • Magazines
  • Phonebooks
  • Old falling apart books
  • Greeting and Holiday Cards
  • Letters
  • Business cards

I had some old business cards that were out of date, and I was trying to decide what to do with them without throwing them away. This was the perfect project for them.

4. Cut a shape out of the recycled paper

I am cutting a leaf shape, and you could use any shape you like such as circles, stars, hearts, etc.

5. Glue the paper together

I glued 2 of the recycled paper leaves together and did this to all of the leaves I needed to create my wreath.

6.  Glue the recycled paper onto the frame

I placed the paper leaves onto the frame in the wreath shape I wanted and then I hot glued them onto the wood frame.

I decided I wanted to paint the edge of the wood frame with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color black to make the frame stand out and add some contrast to the art.
