Gather the family together to create these fun recycled flowers to decorate your home!

Wondering what to do with all those junk catalogs that arrive in the mail? Gather the family together to create these fun recycled flowers to decorate your home!

WHAT YOU NEED

*Catalog, stapled together (not bound)

*Scissors

*White glue (for younger kids) or double-stick tape (for teens or tweens)

HOW YOU DO IT

1. Cut a strip from the bottom of the catalog that includes a staple, holding it together. The strip can be anywhere from 1-3 inches wide.

2. If it needs extra reinforcement, add another staple.

3. Add a strip of white glue to the cover, near the stapled edge on the left. Open the cover and attach the right-sided edge to the left-sided edge where you just added the glue. This will create a loop. (Older kids - teens or tweens - can easily use double stick tape instead of white glue for these steps)

4. Repeat this step with the next page. Now you have two loops.

5. Continue to repeat this step for the entire catalog. Glue the last loop to the first loop. Let dry overnight.

6. The next day, fan out your loops to create a circle. Attach string or yarn to one loop to hang in your home.
