One of my little challenges for this year is to make a wreath for my front door for every season/holiday. I just love the welcoming feel a wreath provides.
So of course, I had to come up with a design for the 4th of July! I love the end result and I hope you will too. :)
The paper stars are really easy to make and here is a tutorial to recreate the wreath.
- Wreath (I used a wire wreath but took out the inner and outer rings to make it thinner)
- Red, white, blue card stock (I found the lovely blue one at Michael's)
- Star template download
- Hot glue gun
- Optional: A scorer for easier folding
- Optional: Distress Ink (I used the color Frayed Burlap)
Use the template to cut out stars in three different sizes. For each star, score from one point to opposite inner angle like shown by the line. Repeat for all 5 points. Fold on every line.
Pinch each point to get the 3D effect (it helps to pinch the points two by two).
Once you have a selection of stars ready, you can hot glue them to the wire frame. Use a ribbon to hang (I used red burlap).That Cute Little Cake and on Facebook and Pinterest.
