Magazine Wreath: Not sure what to do with old issues of This Old House? Take your old magazines, books, and newspapers and make one of these. Get this look by cutting stacks of sheets that are the same size and carefully rolling them into cylinders of equivalent diameter. Pin cylinders as shown to a foam form, or loop and twist extra-long cylinders around a wire frame. Shown: Romance Book Wreath; About $25; Etsy
