After two years, however, my wreath was looking a little worn, and I decided it was time for a new wreath DIY. Here is this summer's creation. Cute, right?!
This pretty little wreath at 24 Olive Street was my inspiration. I love the bright happy colors and touches of whimsy she used. I added the chipboard "hello" to mine for an extra touch of fun.
If you want to create a similar look, here is my how-to:
- 18" grapevine wreath (I got mine at Michael's for $4.99-Don't forget you can use the Michael's app for a 40% off coupon!)
- Assorted scrapbooking paper
- Twine-I used yellow baker's twine
- Mini clothespins
- Mini pinwheel-I bought mine pre-made at Michaels. If you're super crafty you can DIY your own.
- Wooden skewer for attaching pinwheel
- "Hello" chipboard-I found this at Hobby Lobby
- Hot glue
- Spray paint
- Use your spray paint to paint "hello" the color you have chosen
- Decide on the size of triangles you want for your pennant banner (I used Pages on my computer to create a triangle, since I cannot draw a straight line), make a tracer, and trace your triangles onto the scrapbook paper.
- Hot glue the paper triangles to your twine, glue into clothespins, and hot glue to the wreath
- Hot glue "hello" and the pinwheel onto the wreath
- Make your paper accordion flowers using this tutorial and attach to your wreath with hot glue-I used scrapbook paper circles that I cut out for my flower centers
If I can do it, you definitely can! Of course, looking at the picture of the finished product I see things I would change, but overall I'm pretty happy with this crafty creation!
Happy summer, friends!
