Upcycled Calendar Christmas Wreath

I hate throwing away calendars from the previous years. I tend to keep the better pieces of large artwork from the nicer ones, then use the pages from lesser desired pages to do crafts. This is a Christmas wreath made of those pages. With a little help from my firethorn bush, it makes a beautiful wreath for the holidays. This is a great upcycling craft for all ages. Out with the old, in the with the new!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 wreath



  1. Pull out full pages from your calendar. The more pages you use, the bigger and fuller the wreath. Fold each page in half once.
  2. On the side opposite of the fold, use your ruler to make marks at every inch. Make the same marks on the folded side.
  3. Connect the two guidelines to make long strip marks.
  4. Cut across using the guidelines.
  5. Now cut each strip at the folded section.
  6. Glue the ends of each strip together to make little teardrop shapes.
  7. Take two of the teardrops and glue them together at the base to make a heart shape.
  8. Pinch together and hold for a moment to secure. Continue to make more hearts. I made about 20 for this wreath.
  9. Now glue the bottom of each heart into the top of another.
  10. Continue with the rest of the hearts to make a long chain, then glue the first heart to the last heart to make a big ring.
  11. Place glue on the greenery stems and attach to your wreath. I used the one with the berries on top and plain foliage below.

I used to want to eat them when I was a little one. Now I know it's best just to look at!
