"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Easy Ribbon Wreath

Recycle your old artificial green wreath to make a pretty ribbon-adorned Christmas decoration. Embellish your Easy Ribbon Wreath any way you want and be creative with colors. Easy Christmas crafts make the season so much fun. Whether you're looking for easy homemade Christmas gifts that you can make and give or you just want to decorate your space, this is the best project you can make. Pipe cleaners and beaded garlands add color and dimension to the design and help this DIY project stick out from a sea of other homemade decor crafts.
 

Easy Ribbon Wreath
 

Materials:

  • Artifical wreath
  • Thick ribbon, for wrapping
  • Stapler and Staples
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Beaded garland or other embellishments

 

Instructions:

  1. Start with one color ribbon and your artificial wreath.
     
  2. Secure one end to the wreath and wrap the ribbon around the entire thing. Staple the end of the ribbon to the back of the wreath.
     
  3. Take another coordinating ribbon and wrap it around the wreath. Staple that end to the back of the wreath.
     
  4. Then using the beaded garland, wrap it around the wreath and tie it back with pipe cleaners.
     
  5. For ideas on other items to embellish your wreath with, check out the tutorial on Homemade Christmas Wreath Embellishments.

I like quick and easy projects like this. It is amazing how a few simple supplies can make a lovely craft. Is it necessary to use a stapler, though? How about just using some pins? I tend to use glues or a hot glue gun. Will hot glue melt the styrofoam though?
