I decided to make my first Christmas wreath for the door's decoration following an instructables tutorial. I used natural materials (branches and cones) that were attached in an interesting way with toilet paper rolls! It was exciting because it felt like a new challenge every time I went outside with paint or glue gun... I enjoyed myself while making this beautiful bough as well as discovering what other creative things can be done by following simple rules

All you need is:

  • Toilet paper rolls (quantity depends on the size of the wreath)
  • Thick threads (yarn)
  • Paper tape
  • Coniferous branches (Christmas tree or pine)
