DIY a Christmas wreath with used foglietti
Materials needed for the creative Christmas wreath workshop:
- Some used foglietti,
- A pair of scissors,
- A pencil
- From glue (the one from the Coccoina brand is great! We sell it on our online site)
- An eraser
- masking tape (or tape)
We advise you to use foglietti of different colors so that the rendering is prettier.
Estimated time: depending on the quantity of garlands you want, the shapes, and your meticulousness, between 30 minutes and 1h30.
Gathering, and beginning of the garland.
In order to best prepare for this creative stationery workshop, we are going to start by collecting all the used foglietti lying around in your drawers, in your boxes, etc.
If you have all the materials, we can start this Christmas DIY.
Start by drawing on a foglietto the shape you want to give it next. At Foglietto, we started with the Christmas theme, so for us it will be: mountains, fir trees, snowballs...
Second and final step: Assembling the garland.
Get a thread, it's up to you to see which is the most appropriate for your decoration and for maintaining your garland.
Attach the top of the thread with a piece of making tape. And let's go for the assembly.
To do this, gluez the two shapes together, taking care to slide the wire well in the middle.
You are free to create the combinations you want: make every other shape, one shape per garland, alternate all the shapes, etc.
Our advice to make it look better visually is to alternate the shapes if you are making several garlands.
And there you have it, you have made a handmade Christmas decoration. Just install it in your Christmas tree!
P.S. : If you want, you can add stickers to the foglietti to give even more character to your DIY Christmas decor.
We are curious to see your creations, so do not hesitate to send them to us.
In conclusion, to make an eco-responsible decoration
Have a stock of used foglietti in the bottom of your drawers or warm inan "Archivio" storage box. Make it your mission to have a handmade Christmas tree this year, and thus enhance your creative talents. Challenge yourself alone or with children to make a tutorial for Christmas.
