Playdoh containers and a wreath in one project? I love this amazing recycling project that takes Playdoh containers and turns them into a work of art. Welcome Jaime from “That’s My Letter”. I have featured a truckload of her projects on Knock Off DÃ©cor. So I begged to showcase her here too. she is super talented and a recycling woman after my own heart. You have to go check out her blog, she is seriously talented!
“P” is for Playdoh
Jaime here from That’s My Letter guest posting my Playdoh container wreath. Thanks Beckie for having me over to your place, I must admit I was a bit intimidated when I first got the email. Beckie is big time (psshh haha!!) and I wanted to come up with a project that wouldn’t disappoint. I’ve done my best with what I had and for me that’s always the goal. I started with this:
And now my kids have some beautiful, weather resistant swing set decor!
Here’s how I made the wreath:
1. Wash out the Playdoh containers and remove labels:
2. Start with vinyl tablecloths or shower curtain liners (mine are liners from the dollar store):
3. Cut rectangle pieces (about 4″ x 10″) from vinyl (for petals):
4. Cut skinny rectangle piece long enough to wrap around Playdoh container:
5. Make each larger rectangle into a fan by folding it in 1/2″ segments back and forth:
5. Staple the fan in the middle to hold it together:
Make a lot of fans:
6. Hot glue fan onto back of container, spread fan open while glue is still hot:
7. Trim petals down with decorative edge scissors:
Continue adding petal layers as you like. I did two layers for each flower.
8. Using a 18″ round wood wreath form (I cut my own with a jigsaw.) hot glue the flowers onto the form:
(Note holes in wreath form for string to tie onto swing set post.)
9. Hammer round circular push pins into center of container:
Weather resistant, plastic goodness.
Very fun project and minimal cost. My kids love having a decoration to call their own.
Thank you Jaime. You have to go check out some of Jaime’s knock off projects. The girl is brilliant and you will never guess some of the objects she uses to create her projects.
