Cut it up Challenge #22: Make a project to celebrate either Canada Day or Independence Day sponsored by 3 Girl Jam.
Well since I live in the Good ol' US of A my project is to celebrate Independence Day.
I've been in to home decor projects lately so I decided to try my hand at making a flower wreath. I'm very happy with the way this turned out. I bought my wreath base from the dollar store. I love a good bargain.
Here's how I did it:
I used my Art Philosophy cart and cut out several flowers at 2" then pieced two of them together and fluffed them up. I used a little bling from my stash and adhered that with a glue dot to the centers.
I hot glued each flower to the wreath base. Then I dug through my ribbon draw and came across a red, white and blue hair tie that I found at Target last year so I cut it apart and used the ribbon for the bottom part of my wreath.
Here's a close up of the flowers. From the book, the flowers kind of looked like stars to me so I thought they would make a great Fourth of July wreath.
Thanks for stopping by today to check out my project.
