SPRING IS FINALLY HERE (or at least almost here)! In order to welcome the warmer days and nature’s awakening which the arrival of spring heralds, I decided to create a SPRING WREATH craft project using my new favorite material: CRAFT FOAM. This is a perfect project for working together with a little crafter! After the success of working with my kids and my Sizzix Big Shot in making mini foam baskets I decided to try again using the same Standard Circles Large die – come see how hard my little assitants worked to put together this stunning wreath!
You will need:
Yellow Craft Foam
Small Styrofoam Wreath form
Let’s get started:
Step 1: Cover the styrofoam wreath with colorful ribbon.
Step 2: Cut out 300 small circles using the Big Shot and the second smallest size of the Standard Circles Large die. This is the step that kids love!!! You can put three pieces of foam through the Big shot at a time and it cuts perfectly. You will need around 10 sheets of craft foam.
Step 3: Fold one circle in half.
Step 4: Fold in half again.
Step 5: Insert a straight pin through the point of the triangle.
Step 6: Pin onto the wreath form.
Step 7: Repeat steps 3 to 6 and keep going until the form is full!
Step 8: Add a hanger by pining a ribbon onto the back.
Step 9: Add bow onto the front of the wreath.
This wreath was a pleasant surprise – I did not realize that the kids and I would be able to create such a polished looking wreath! I was proud to hang in on the door to the FunLab store. Try it in another color and send us a picture!
