A few months ago a shared my summer banner wreath over at Pink Cake Plate. My friend Laura was moving (which is a pain that I myself am going through now), so I was lucky enough to take over her blog for the day. I know we are getting close to the end of the summer season and on to the back to school season, but in case you missed it over there, you get to see it here, today!
You may already know that one of my favorite things to do is decorate my door for the seasons. I love this burlap wreath that I made a few months ago and I decided to jazz it up so I could use it for my summer wreath. Here is how I put my wreath together.
The first thing I did was create the mini summer banner. You can download a copy of the mini summer banner and see how I used it in our welcome summer party. Once I printed it onto card stock and cut it out, I used bakers twine to string it across my burlap wreath. Now if you don’t have a burlap wreath, no worries. The banner will look cute on any wreath! It looks ok with just the banner alone, but I thought it needed a little something.
So I opened up my cutting program for my silhouette cameo and designed a popsicle that I could cut out of card stock to attach to the wreath.
I picked out some coordinating papers and cut out my popsicle shapes.
I just used a glue stick to glue the popsicles together.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to attach my paper popsicles to my wreath until I found these mini clothes pins in my craft stash.
I just used a glue dot to attach the clothes pin to the backs of the popsicles.
Those clothes pins sure made it easy to attach the popsicles to the burlap!
I like the added element of the popsicles. I think it gives the wreath a little something extra and nothing says summer (especially in AZ) better than popsicles! I’m sharing my popsicle cut file if you’d like to download it to make some popsicles of your own.
