I have a thing for square wreaths, but they cost way too much for me. I decided to make my own using foam core board. It was so simple. I just used a ruler to draw out the size I wanted. Mine measures 15″ x 18″, with the form width being 3 1/4″.
Then I used an exacto knife to cut it out.
I wrapped the form in yarn. Hubby helped me about 1/2 way through and it went a lot faster then. I secured the yarn with hot glue in about 3 places on the back of each side.
The angles took a lot more glue and more time to keep everything in the right place. I like how it turned out though.
I had these big flowers in my flower stash. I made the center out of twine by wrapping it and using hot glue to keep it in place. I got the idea from Layla.
Here’s a closer look. I love the texture it adds.
Next I wanted to add a little bunting. I cut pieces of scrapbook paper 2″ x 1 1/4″ and then cut them into triangles using the paper cutter.
I secured them to rick rack using hot glue.
Then hot glued the bunting to the wreath, securing it to the back of the form.
I tied a ribbon to the top of the wreath, then hung it on the door.
A cute Spring wreath and it only cost me $1. 60 to make. I only had to buy the yarn.
Thanks for stopping by.
