trash to treasure

some people see yard waste. i say grab your glue gun, baby, cause we’re making a wreath!

this is the time of year when twigs are easy to come by. so instead of pitching them, grab several handfuls and fire up your glue gun.

start by making a square from the biggest twigs (about the size of your pinky works well) and glue them together.

continue adding and gluing….

…until you like the the way it looks.

you could leave it the way it is, or grab those dried out eucalyptus branches from an old bouquet or whatever else you have lying around the house and hot glue it on.

woohoo! you’re done! now go hang it somewhere for friends and family to ooh and ahh over.

    I love this idea, Amy! And I’ve been really wanting an outdoor-safe, non-holiday wreath for our front door. Thank you!
