Recycled Paper Memorial Day Wreath - finished wreath hanging on over the door hookHere is a simple and fun Memorial Day wreath I made with simple household supplies.

Since this wreath is made of paper/cardboard, it is best to use this wreath indoors or in your garage decorating (not outdoors.)

Total Time: 35 minutes + drying time

Yield: 1 wreath

Supplies:

  • paper plate
  • cereal box
  • scissors
  • pen/marker
  • acrylic paint
  • clothespin
  • cotton ball
  • assorted ribbon

Steps:

  1. Using a cereal box, cut the box so it is flat. That way you can trace star shapes. You could freehand star shapes, or cut a heart shape on a piece of paper as a template to trace.

  5. I folded my paper plate and cut the inside out (half circle) to create wreath. Then check to see if you need to cut more stars or not.

  7. Lay down paper or a box to paint your stars. We used the cotton ball dabbing technique, but you could always use markers, or crayons too. Allow to dry.
