Things are slowly coming along for the rainbow party. I managed to get the wreath done, now I'm getting ready to work on her t-shirt. Lot's to do still! But I want to go ahead & share the wreath. I started with a $1 wreath form from the Dollar Tree, some batting & tacky glue.
I cut strips out of the batting (doesn't need to be perfect) and wrapped it all around the wreath.
This is what you will end up with.
I used this super soft baby yarn. It has 86 yards & was less than $3. I knew this would cover it & I wasn't looking to spend much on this.
After wrapping the entire wreath in yarn, you have this. I love how soft & fluffy it looks, almost like a cloud!
And here is the end result!
I don't have any photos of making the flowers, I was kind of playing with them as I went. At the time I wasn't 100% positive what I wanted to do. But the flowers are easy. Just cut a spiral in the felt & roll it up. I used a little hot glue to secure them together.
I haven't decided if I am going to make another bunting for this party (I made one for all three parties last year), so I wanted to add one to the wreath. It's just triangles of felt, glued together.
I strung them on a piece of baker's twine.
I think it turned out pretty cute! I might hang it in their bedroom when the party is over, not sure yet. Oh, and please check out my current giveaway, your choice of bow from Hailey's Bows. There is only one entry so far, so your chances are good!
