Hi! Happy Flag Day! I have a weakness for anything patriotic so I decided to make this patriotic star wreath.
Since I want to put this in the window of my front door, I wanted it to look good from both sides.
Vintage Nation by The Paper Studio
Blue cardstock by Bazil
2 inch wired ribbon in white/red
1 inch patriotic wired ribbon
Blue and clear gem stars by Jots
small star punch
Blue pearls by Jots
Tape runner, glue, hot glue
The wreath base is 11 1/2 inches and was cut from tagboard and heavy cardstock. I used the Star Studded Circle for the base because I wanted the back to look good. The gem stars fit perfectly in the cut out star spaces It would work also just to use the base included with the Storybook Wreath.
I cut out the pieces for the stars and the bases using several prints from the Vintage Nation Paper Stack. I followed the directions included with the file, and used tape runner and glue on the seams, and held it all together with paper clips while it dried.
When the stars were dry, I held them like this, and gently pushed in until the center popped out.
The stars were attached with a glue gun, evenly spaced around the wreath. I took the red stars cut from the Star Studded Circle and added one to the center of each 3-d star. I then added a small punched star in the center of the red stars, then added a blue pearl.
I used the wider ribbon to create a bow and the narrow ribbon to create a loop. These were attached to the back with hot glue.
I hope you like my patriotic wreath! I would love to hear what you think, so please leave a message.
