30 Days of Pinterest Day 13: 3D Star Wreath
I have sooo many ideas pinned using these 3D stars but decided to make a wreath based on one from the blog Gluesticks. Now that I have made my first few, I plan on using them for several Christmas projects.
I used my Cricut to cut out several 4 inch and 3 inch stars and then scored them 5 times from the tip of each point to the V directly across from it. Then you crease the lines and fold the star into the 3D shape.
To make the base of my wreath I cut a circle out of cardboard and then covered it with stars that had not been creased.
I then used my hot glue gun to layer on the 3D stars.
I really wish I could get my act together to get these things done earlier in the day so I can get some better quality photos. This looks so much prettier in real life than it does here and it looks very cute in my craft room. I love the non-traditional pink and black Christmas paper.
Want to hang something on your cabinet doors without leaving a mark? Use an upside down command hook on the inside of your door! Another neat idea from Pinterest!
Almost two weeks into my Pinterest Challenge and although I am getting lots of projects completed I think my poor husband is beginning to think I have forgotten how to cook! Good thing he is willing to pitch in and be the chief cook and bottle washer while I am pursuing my crazy month long challenge.
