Summertime Wreath - Guest Post...

I'm so excited to be helping out Diane of Vintage Zest...her projects have inspired me and I hope I can do the same with this SUPER SIMPLE Summertime Wreath made from supplies you probably have at home.

You will need:
  • 12" Styrofoam Wreath (preferably the kind that doesn't flake off)
  • Ribbon or Tulle
  • 1" push pens
  • 3-D Foam Squares
Wrap Wreath with Ribbon or Tulle until all the Styrofoam is covered.
------------------------------------------------------
Cut scrapbook paper into shapes - I used stars and my Cricut Machine but you can hand-cut any shape you want.  I had one sheet of Scrapbook Paper cut into smaller stars for dimension. There are probably a total of 35 stars or so..
--------------------------------------------------
Start pinning one color stars onto wreath using 1" pins.
--------------------------------------------------
Pin another color/pattern of stars onto wreath overlapping slightly.  There should be a solid ring of stars at this point.  
-------------------------------------------------------
Adhere the rest of the stars onto the wreath using the 3-D Foam Squares and attach a sign or extra embellishments.

Here some close-ups so you can see the dimension of the stars...



Viola...a CUTE, SIMPLE wreath for any occasion!

Thanks for stopping by...don't forget to head on over to Vintage Zest to see more of Diane's beautiful creations and helpful tips and recipes!

Love it - I do recognize one of the old time CTMH paper packs which I absolutely hoard! With boys - you can never have enough "Denim Days" paper! Did I tell you that I love that paper pack?!!
