Guest Post: $2 Flower Wreath

7:00 AM

         Today, We have a special guest :) It's the oh-so-sweet and very lovely Jaime from Wayward Girls' Crafts! She's one of the many creative sisters that blogs over there. Super cool blog by the way. I'm kind of jealous. I wish my sister blogged with me! Anyway....
 *intense drumroll*

Take it away Jaime!

That's Me!


I'm excited to be guest posting here. Maggie has been really understanding and awesome. Hope you're having a great time, Maggie!

I prepared a wreath tutorial to share today:




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 1 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!  Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for having me, Maggie! And come see me at Wayward Girls' Crafts
