Here are the supplies you will need:
2. Patriotic Scrapbook paper
3. Ink pad to ink the edges of the stars
4. Glue Gun
5. Embroidery floss & needle
6. Ribbon for hanging
I cut the stars with my Cricut, but you could also cut them by hand. You will need 3-2 1/2" stars and 4 - 2" stars.
After cutting your stars, you will need to score folding lines as illustrated in the photo below -
I have a scoring board, but you could easily score them with a credit card or craft stick. Once all of the scores are completed you will begin to fold the star.
Hold the star wrong side up and fold all of the scored lines on the points - fold with wrong sides together. When all points are folded, flip the star over to the right side, then bring two points together as shown below -
Then you will end up with 3D Stars! So easy and they really look nice!
The medallions are 2 - 1 1/2" strips of paper scored every 1/2 inch. After scoring both pieces, glue the ends together and then glue a small punched circle to the back to stabilize the medallion.
If you have never made these types of medallions/starbursts/rosettes you can watch the great Video Tutorial on how to make them.
Make 3 medallions - Red, White & Blue
To attach the 2 1/2" stars on to the medallions hot glue a bit of wadded up paper towel into the back of the star, then hot glue on to the medallion. This will stabilize the stars without lots of hot glue showing.
Once you have completed the 3 medallion/star combos, you will need to string 4 - 2" stars on to 3 strands of embroidery floss. I also attached a small flag with USA on it that was cut from a piece of scrapbook paper.
Attach the banner to your wreath and add a bit of ribbon to hang it from.
That's it! Quick & Easy - two of my favorite words!
Such a cute wreath for very little money and just perfect for a quick Sunday afternoon craft!
Wishing everyone a wonderful week!
