DIY Toilet Paper Roll Wreath

I haven't been doing all that many DIY posts lately but I wanted to share something I did earlier this week even if it didn't turn out as well as I had would have liked. I mean it is better than I thought it was going to be when I was making it, but I'm not sure I'm going to be keeping them. On the plus side these wreaths are a bit of an upcycle project because they're mostly made from toilet paper rolls, with just some colored paper for the flowers. 

The one above is the one I like better and actually the first one I did. After that I tried a more unique design but it just didn't come out how I wanted it to. 
So how to make them! First of all you're going to need a few toilet paper (or paper towel rolls) and cut them into half inch sections keeping a circular shape. Then arrange them how you want. For the first wreath I started out with a five point star pattern and glued these together. When I had enough of them for the size wreath I wanted I glued these together. I used a plate to try and keep the shape round. After that came the flowers. Take a square of paper and cut it as shown below. Then round off the four edges before rolling it up. You can either roll form the inside out, or the outside in, just make sure to glue as you go. I personally used a hot glue gun but if you don't have one you can use the craft glue (you know that stuff you used in school that comes in the white tubes) it'll just take longer and might not be as durable.
