$2 Flower Wreath

I share this tutorial on Maggie's blog, Chica Es Artistica , last week. 

I've never really made a wreath before. I've seen lots of people share them on blogs and Pinterest  so I thought I'd give it a go myself. I give you, the $2 Flower Wreath!




Materials:


Floral wreath from the Dollar Tree
White acrylic paint
Paint Brush
Glue gun
Cardstock (I used Core'dinations Glitter Silk, Opulent Opal)
I thought about adding a pink flower I'd already made, but I decided to leave it off 

Let's get started!


First paint that green wreath! Paint it whatever color of cardstock you're using. Make sure to paint both sides. Give the first side time to dry before you flip it over. It doesn't have to be perfect but it will show through, so it needs to be fully covered. 

Next punch out a BUNCH of hydrangeas. I used one and half full pages of cardstock to cover my wreath. Give the flowers a little shape by slightly folding up the petals as seen below: 


Use your glue gun to adhere the flowers all over. Try not to burn your fingers too badly.


And you're done. A cute wreath for just $2!  I got the idea from the pomander flower spheres we made for Brooke's shower.

What crafts have you made that have inspired other crafts?
