Summertime Wreath from Katy!

Today's guest post is from Katy from An Inside To My Heart, one awesome scrapbooking and card making lady!  When she was interested in guest posting, I asked if she might use some of her skills to making something home decor-related and she whipped up this super cute summertime wreath!  Ready for the tutorial?  Check it out!

Summertime Wreath on Diane's Vintage Zest!


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:
  • Styrofoam Wreath (preferably the kind that doesn't flake off)
  • Ribbon or Tulle
  • 4 sheets of 12x12 Scrapbook Paper (I doubled one of my patterns but you could use 4 different patterns if you want).
  • 1" push pens
  • 3-D Foam Squares

Directions

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.
