Pinterest Pick Friday ~ 4th of July Wreath

I’m so excited to show you this project!! I LOVE how it turned out!!

I found the idea on pinterest a couple weeks ago when I was looking for one to make for this upcoming holiday. This one really stuck out to me! I had to search a couple of blogs to get to the tutorial for it, but I finally found it and got to work.

And let me tell you, this was NOT a one sitting wreath project!! It took about 3 hours to finish it completely. Of course, I was doing it at night while watching a new favorite TV show with the hubs, soooo, I would get distracted easily. It was very time consuming. If you’re not patient and like fast results, this wreath probably isn’t for you, but if you put on a favorite movie or watch TV, you can actually enjoy doing it.

Here’s the finished result:

I used a LOT of pins!! I had to go back to the store to buy more because I ran out. I decided I was ok with leaving the pins in. At first I thought I’d pin a bunch and then glue the felt pieces on with hot glue, but that added another step and I really didn’t want to do that. I’m a lazy crafter! :)

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the stars from sticker paper and then sandwiched floral wire I bought at walmart for $1.27 in between 2 star stickers.

My rows aren’t as full as they could be. I might go back and add more for next year.

I am really please with the finished project!! It turned out a lot better than I thought it would! Doesn’t it look great on my front door?!! :) If you want to make one head on over to Capital B where I got the tutorial from. It’s easy, just time consuming!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!!

    Hi! This is beyond cute, major props for creativity! You should consider watermarking and naming your photos. So when people go to pin them, it has the information about your project and your blog name included in it! I just thought of it because I pinned this wreath and the info Pinterest put in the description box was something like “img 135″. It’ll boost your views a ton, promise!:)
