On the first day of Christmas… I finished my Christmas wreath!

Actually, on the first day of Christmas my true love said to me…. “Now we’ve moved house can you finish off some of these crafty projects you have started (and never finished)!”

Amongst the box unpacking (we moved into our new house last week… you can visit my blog about building the house at www.lot271.com) I found some time to make my toilet-paper-roll-Christmas-wreath as I promised I would in my Christmas decoration post. I couldn’t have made it any earlier because I needed the extra time to collect enough toilet rolls! I think that is a good enough excuse, don’t you?

I can’t take the credit for the idea, it was a Pinterest discovery (care of the wonderful tutorial on the site See You There Designs)…

It seems there are a few crafty people out there making some creative stuff with toilet paper rolls. Check out this AMAZINGLY enormous wall art from Tibble Fork

So here’s my Christmas creation. I’ve gone with a beachy Christmas theme this year. You will see over the coming weeks that I have chosen predominantly light blue, white and silver… with the addition of sand, shells, star fish and drift wood.

I used Kikki K Christmas gift tags to compliment the natural cardboard tones of the toilet paper, along with a star fish and some raffia and ribbon. Fingers crossed we don’t have a wet lead up to Christmas or I might end up with a rather soggy wreath (will keep you posted!!).

If you want some more ideas for your Christmas theme this year take a look at my Pinterest Christmas inspiration board .

Fa la la la laaaaaa, la,  la,  la,  la….

    • Thanks Kaitlin, I think the natural colours with beach theme works well too. Stay tuned for the remaining beach themed Christmas decorations over the coming weeks…

  1. I love this!! So happy I could inspire you to create this gorgeous wreath :) The beach theme is a great twist on the idea, and you can use it year round too, not just at Christmas! Happy Holidays!!
