The CSI Project has a Dollar Store Crafts challenge this week! and the purpose of The CSI Project is to "Create Something Inspiring" or to Create, Share, Inspire...
and one of my favorite crafty blogs is Dollar Store Crafts, and I get most of my inspiration lately from Pinterest. So I combined the two and found this great pin!
That same day, I took a trip to the dollar store and I picked up a foam wreath form, some crepe paper, and 4 flower bunches in my favorite spring colors! I had the glue gun at home and dug in my stash for the perfect ribbon to match!
What you need:
- Wreath form, $1
- Crepe paper, $1
- 3-4 faux flower bunches, $3-4
- Ribbon, on hand
- Hot glue gun with glue sticks, on hand
Wrap crepe paper around wreath form to cover it (not sure this step is necessary, but it does cover the green), and secure it with hot glue gun.
Pop the flower heads off the stems.
Using hot glue gun, secure flower heads to wreath form in random order (unless you are OCD, then plan out a pattern and be very exact, in which case it might take you more than 5 minutes to complete the craft)
Wrap the ribbon around the wreath form and tie a knot on the top. Hang from your door and you are done!!
EASY Peasy and so cheery!! and it was time to replace my Spring Green Wreath!!
I'm also adding it to Tatertots and Jello's Weekend wrap up!
