Happy Tuesday! I know...Christmas? It's not even Halloween yet. However, this is a quick and easy project and you're recycling too!
Today's project is this mini wreath.
Remember this candle recycling project? Click here to read all about it. That post is about using the glass tops from jar candles. Lots of great ideas!
To use the glass tops, you have to remove the plastic ring. Easy, but you are left with...
All these rings. What to do with them...make a Christmas wreath, of course!
If you don't have plastic rings, you can also use old canning jar rings.
If you've been reading Sew Many Ways for a while, you know I save a lot of crap (hence the plastic rings). Here's where I keep it all. Boxes and boxes of stuff I save...just in case.
Here's one of those boxes. I cut up an old, artificial evergreen garland that had seen better days.
Lots of little branches waiting for a project. Each branch is about 8 inches long.
Loop it through the ring...
and twist to secure. That's it!
Keep adding until the ring is full.
Add as many branches as you'd like.
You might have to trim the inside evergreen to show the shape a little more.
Add a pretty bow!
Perfect to hang any where.
Or add a glass votive and candle to the center.
This would be so pretty with several down the center of the table.
or because they are so small...add one to each place setting.
You can also use fabric strips or ribbon and tie that onto the rings.
Have a great Tuesday and remember...always look twice at something before you through it out!
