The cardboard can be cut from any old box you have, cereal boxes or other food packaging boxes are great options!  Don’t worry too much about making the strips perfectly even.  The variations in sizes just add to the wreath!

  1. Collect the materials listed above.
  2. Trace a large circle on the card board and trace a smaller circle inside.
  3. Repeat on a second piece of cardboard and cut each piece out.  (You can find items to trace in your home such as large pots, bowls and jars.)
  4. Glue the two pieces of cardboard together.
  5. Cut thin strips of wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper and the gold ribbon.  The thickness of the strips can vary based on personal preference, just be sure they are long enough to completely wrap around the cardboard.
  6. Begin gluing each strip of paper/ribbon around the cardboard with a dab of white glue.
  7. Overlap the strips slightly until the entire wreath is covered.
  8. Use the remaining strips to form a bow (or you can use real ribbon if you prefer).
