Even though it is Birthday Party time around here, a celebration is a celebration right? Today for Monday Craft Madness I wanted to share a cool idea from one of Teresa Collins’ design team members Cheri Piles. She used Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company to make a beautiful non-Christmas wreath for her door….So today’s theme is:
Switch it Up
Create something unexpected. Use a themed collection to create something non-theme specific. Here’s what Cheri created:
Cheri started off with some flat wreath bases from her local craft store.
The wreath came together pretty quickly and easily here are the first steps:
- Spray the two bases and star ornament white
- Add some clear or white glitter to the smaller wreath
- Set all three pieces aside to dry
- Cut 8 strips 1 1/2″ and 8 strips 1 1/4″
- Cut each strip 6″ in length for a total of 16 strips each
- Use the Teresa Collins Stapler or another stapler to assemble your paper chain
Once your pieces are dry take some invisible thread and hang the small wreath to the center of the large base and glue your star wood ornament to the center of the small one.
Tie your ribbon on and hot glue the larger pieces onto the base. If you like a little extra bling add some stars from the sequins package to finish it off.
