Things are slowly coming along for my daughter’s rainbow birthday party. I managed to get the wreath done, now I’m getting ready to work on her t-shirt. Lots to do still! But I want to go ahead & share the wreath. I started with a wreath form, 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 110 yards & was less than $3. I knew this would cover it & I wasn’t looking to spend much on this.
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.
And here is the end result! I think it turned out pretty cute! I might hang it in their bedroom when the party is over, not sure yet.
