Thank you very much for all your encouragement and well wishes, that you leave in your comments, for the projects I share here. It is a joy to read each one of your messages. Truly humbled.
It really breaks my heart to see the amount of cardboard and plastic, in good condition, being dumped.
I love finding ways to reuse, upcycle or repurpose household stuff, especially kitchen ware like plastic bottles, cereal boxes, milk cartons, milk jugs etc.
We have a set tradition of having Pizza from Pizza Hut for Friday lunch (our weekend)
And that’s how I have heaps of pizza boxes !!
Today, I am sharing a simple yet easy way to use the cardboard from the pizza box to make a wreath.
The felt flowers are also handmade. You can find the tutorial to those HERE.
This frame was salvaged from a friend, who was leaving the country and wanted to get rid of it since it was too large and had no glass in the front. Ofcourse, I rescued it.
Here’s the tutorial :

Now for the bunting:
The heart shape in the wreath is made with white foam which was packaging material in the box, from a recently bought earphone set. I added a felt heart and a button over it. And voila, it looks lovely !
I think, its stinkin cute ! I liked it enough to have it hung in the hallway.
Black and white stripes with pops reds and pinks is just so attractive.
I believe, crafters can breath life into any mundane object with their glue guns and some paint 🙂 – One minute that box could have been chugged into the bin but we found a way to make it adorn our walls.
Although, I have designed the frame and wreath with the HOME sentiment, It could be easily replaced with words like Love, faith, friends or names of festivals.
I hope you find inspiration in my projects and might consider attempting some of them.
