Tutorial – Wreath from a pizza box !

Hello friends,

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.

Tutorial for upcycling pizza box into a wreath

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.

Upcycle Pizza Box

Hello creative buddies !

Pizza Hut take away boxes are one of my favorite materials to use as canvases and shadow box frames.

Here are some of my other takes on the previous pizza box projects :

Today, I have used ring-pulls to design a heart shape on a pizza box. I love playing with texture and these ring pulls add a unique texture to the project.  I have used a gold matt spray paint finish to subdue the rings.

The process was longer than expected but the end result was well-worth it.

* I did not have to go scavenging for ring pulls since I already collect them and have a huge pile of ring pulls and lids so they come in handy, for such projects.

How did you find this project ?

I continue to share projects that can inspire my friends and readers with ways to reuse/recycle/repurpose/upcycle household items.

Every decision starts with a very small but firm, first step. I hope you embrace the idea of recycling or repurposing this year.

If you have been recycling already,  I would love to read some of your ideas for eco friendly crafts too.

I’m delighted that you stopped by.  I hope you stay a while and leave inspired.
