All right, next up on my summer to do list was a wreath for outside my door. I was inspired by this one that Melanie from School Girl style made for her bird themed classroom:
I headed to Michaels and picked up the following supplies:
2 different ribbons
Flowers in my color scheme
Small wooden letters
Paint in my color cheme
Wooden dog cutouts
The first thing I did was rifle through the bag of wooden letters to make sure I had enough of the right letters for my name. Luckily I did! Then I painted them with the blue, green and yellow paint I had gotten to match my room. Once they were dry I started arranging things on the wreath the way I thought they would look the best:
I ended up rearranging things a few times before I found a way that looked balanced:
Once I had everything where I wanted it I hot glued like crazy to hold it all down! Then I added some ribbon to hang off the bottom, and a ribbon loop at the top to hang it from and voila!
I loved it so much I made another as a going away present for a friend who is doing an owl themed classroom next year:
Hers was easier to arrange because her name is shorter :)
I think they are both adorable!
