Series 7 “Ornament-ED” part 2 continues today with a nifty ornament utilizing the spiral binding from a child’s used-up sketch pad. Not entirely uncute and so simple to make it’s really rather shocking.
Tutorial ✽ Spiral Notebook Binding Wreaths
Easy-breeziest craft of your life?… I say!
Well you have yourself a pleasant day. I will return forthwith!
The first installment of Series 7 – Ornament-ED can be found ☛ Twiggy Skate Ornaments.
Hmmm, wish I had a pile of spirals. I would do this with my Daisy scout troop.
Little Treasures says

Those are great! Your creativity for using stuff that I would just throw away never ceases to amaze me! I will be saving my old notebooks now for sure, or at least the spiral parts of them 🙂
Genius! They're quirky and modern and I love them. *eyes all the half-full spiral notebooks in the house*

These are amazing and so simple. I just cleaned out the office at work and threw away so many of these it was ridiculous!!! I had no idea what to do with them (shame on me!!!!) I did recycle the paper, so I felt half good about the whole thing.
Rats, I'd say. timing is everything, of course. As SisterDG says, looking at all the rest of the spiral notebooks I have left….
I'm going to sound like a broken record (does anyone know what that is anymore??) You come up with amazing ideas from found objects!

Oh my dear, you never stop to amaze me! They are wonderful!
You’ve changed the way I look at my carbage, but I’m not that inventive to see what I can make of it most of the times!
Michelle L. says
You are so cool! Making wreaths from these – i never woulda thunk to do that, but you have a way of coming up with the face-slappingly perfect craft for each recycled item. Love them!!!
p.s. I have been saving these for a jewelry project, but don't think I could top this!
So simple and so beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration! I'm sorry I haven't visited you for a long time, but I'm so busy with my theatre projects that I can hardly breathe…
Oh for heaven's sake. You've gone and done it again. Who else would have saved a spiral, let alone created world's easiest craft out of one? Why no one. Because there's only one Michele.

What a fun site you have. Debra from Monnie Bean Folk Art left a lovely comment on my blog, I visited her blog, saw your blog and visited and have been wowed by some of your tutorials. I definitely want to do some with my kids for Christmas. Thank you!
Dixie Sargent Redmond says
And also, I want to say you have some really good tutorials where the items are transformed so you don't notice what they ARE (toilet paper tubes). Although it's nice when you do, too.
Grazie!.Da tanto conservavo queste spirali in attesa di riciclo … la tua idea è davvero semplice e geniale. Mi metto subito all'opera e addobberò il mio albero di Natale. Grazie, grazie ancora.

Adorable! They are so tiny and cute. Very clever.
In the practice of law, most documents are bound with spiral bindings which cannot be properly recycled – although they don't look as pretty as yours (!) I am always trying to think of some way to give them new life – you solved that problem. I really love this idea.
