Examples of wreaths the inspire me to try and make one.
|I love both of these styles. They make me smile.|
|How cute is this!!!! Made out of marshmallows. hahahaha|
|maybe for Christmas...|
|Painted a styrofoam form from Hobby Lobby. The paint is called Pistachio, but it's more lime green.|
So far so good.
|I found some cute cupcake holders at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off.|
All I did here was fold the cupcake wrappers into flower shapes and hot glued them on. This got a little frustrating for me because my crafting OCD kicked in at this point and a few didn't look as good as I hoped. I plugged along in hopes that the more I got on there the less the bad ones would show. I did a small grouping on each side of the wreath. Top, bottom, left and right then filled in the gaps. Trying to keep it balanced.
|A better view of the cupcake wrappers and how they looked glued on and bunches together.|
I was very hopeful at this point.
I used 150 wrappers for this project.
|I hot glued a pink ribbon down a white one I had to coordinate with the wreath's colors.|
And, now I can say the wreath and I are on the road to becoming friends. Possibly BFFs one day. Well, lets not get carried away Kelly. Baby steps right? My front door finally displays a wreath for the first time. I am quite smittin with it. Maybe one day I will attempt something harder but for now I will sit back and enjoy the fact that I can now finally say, "Hello, my name is Kelly and I can make wreaths."
