Recycled Cereal Box Pocket Wreath for Spring


Are you tired of the usual round wreaths that decorate your door?  Here's an easy way to recycle a cereal box into an adorable handmade pocket wreath to showcase your favorite spring blooms.


Materials:
Cereal box/cardboard
Ruler/Scissors/Pencil
Glass Cylinder
Hot Glue Gun
Masking tape
Outdoor Mod Podge/Sealer
FolkArt Painted Finishes - Dimensional Moss Effect
Hole Punch/Duct Tape
Ribbon
Floral Foam
Faux Pansies


Let's get started by opening a large cereal box at the side seam and placing the print side down.
Using a ruler, draw the shape of a vase with straight lines and .  .   .

cut out.

To enhance the curved shape, gently rub cardboard cut-out around a glass cylinder into a vase shape. Place cardboard cut-out shape onto remaining cereal box cardboard, the width of the vase, as pictured.


Apply hot glue to the long edge of the cut-out and .  .  .

place on top of the cardboard holding in place until the hot glue cools.

Repeat for the opposite side and let glue cool.



Cut off excess cardboard at sides. Next, apply hot glue to narrow bottom and place on cardboard, holding in place until cool and dry.
Cut off excess cardboard around bottom shape.

Reinforce sides, outside, inside, and bottom with additional hot glue and cool.

Tape sides and bottom with masking tape for additional strength.
Coat vase with Outdoor Mod Podge or sealer.
Once dry, apply the Dimensional Moss Effect paint.

Then, punch two holes for hanging, reinforcing with duct tape. 

Tie ribbon and knot in hanging holes and glue floral foam inside. Then .  .  . 

arrange flowers, topped with a bow and hang on door.

This handmade recycle cardboard wreath is a lovely pocket full of pansies!


Thanks for stopping by
and take a little time to enjoy -
Happy Crafting!
