Interchangable Rainbow Wreath ~ Spring and St Patrick's Day, #Spring, #Wreath, #DIY, #Rainbow what a fun idea love thisInterchangeable Rainbow Wreath ~ Spring and St Patrick’s Day

This fun wreath is easy to make and a fun change from a normal wreath.  The best part, with some string, bakers twine or fishing line, you can add a cute shape in the middle and use it through spring when St Patrick’s day is over!

You will need:

Felt in rainbow colors.  I used one piece of each color

Wreath form (Get a wicker one from the dollar store to save some money)

Hot glue gun and glue sticks

A spice container, or something to use as a template for cutting circles that are around 2 inches in diameter

Fabric scissors

pen

You will want to start by tracing circles.  If you use anything bigger than a couple of inches, you will need more flannel.  Once you have your circles traced you are going to cut them out with some fabric scissors.  This isn’t hard, but a little time consuming.  Do yourself a favor and do it while you watch television or something to entertain yourself.  Really, you will never want to see another circle in your life. 😉

Once you have all of your circles cut, you are going to glue them on to your wreath form.  This also takes forever but the ruffles look so pretty that it is worth it! Begin with red or purple, since those are your end colors and work your way to the other end.  Put a small dot of hot glue in the middle of the felt circle and pinch it together.  This will help keep it from just falling into a flat circle.

Once you have glued the circle in the middle, put a dot on your wreath form and place the circle on.  Pinch it for a few seconds so that it will stay attached.  Continue to do this for each circle.  Place them close together to prevent gaps.  They should cover fairly well.

Once I did my colors, I still had a good size gap left of wreath showing.  I covered it in strips of light blue felt for the sky.  I wanted my clouds to be different from the rainbow, so they wouldn’t look like part of the rainbow.  I cut  them flat, to look like clouds, and just cut 3 different sizes to give it more depth.

Now, for the shape in the middle.  Using card stock or thick paper, cut your desired shape.  I went with a shamrock out of some sparkly green scrapbook paper I had.  If you want to make it thicker, do two of the same shape and glue them together so that it is double sided. Punch a small hole in the top and hang using string, bakers twine or fishing line.  If you are using a wicker wreath, tie the other end of the string around the pieces of wicker in the back.  Or just hot glue it where you want it.  I also made raindrops that I plan on hanging after St Patrick’s day is over so that I can keep my fun, bright wreath up through spring!

3D Circle Garland~DIY Crafts

3D Circle Garland~DIY Crafts

While this garland was made for Valentine’s day, it really is so simple to recreate for whatever decor/occasion you can imagine!  With all of the scrapbook paper out there, you could make it to go with virtually any room for any holiday or just to add a little charm to your space!  I happened to find some adorable paper at Target in the Dollar Spot and it really wanted to come home with me.  I knew as soon as I saw it that  I wanted to make this garland with it.  So I bought it and I think it turned out cute!

You will need:

Scrapbook paper (doesn’t need to be card stock)

glue (I used hot glue and gun)

twine, ribbon or bakers twine

circle cutter of some sort.

There are so many different paper cutters out there.  I don’t have an actual punch like this one which would make this craft even easier.  I do have this one though.  This is what I used.  It works great and cuts circles any size from 1 inch to 5.5 with so many options in between it is unreal!  Definitely worth the money.  Plus the blades last forever it seems like.  Anyway, I cut my circles 2 inches.  For each circle on the garland you will want 3 circles of scrapbook paper.  Mine is fairly small, only 6 circles which means I only needed 6 circles of my 3 paper patterns I used.  Once your circles are cut, you will want to fold them in half, pattern side in like this.

If you are using hot glue, heat up your gun.  Have you used bakers twine yet?  It is adorable and adds a little something to your project.  I found this pack at Hobby Lobby and used a 40% off coupon on it.  I love that it has so many colors in it and see a lot of bakers twine being used in my future!  Here is some via Amazon.  It is a great buy and comes with multiple colors as well.  This is great if you don’t have a craft store that carries it nearby to use a 40% off coupon.  Plus if you have prime it ships free, can’t beat that!   Thin ribbon or regular twine would also work and look great.

Decide how much twine you want extra at the end of your garland and begin to glue your circles.  Take 2 circles and glue them together like this

Once they are glued together, slide your twine in and glue your 3rd circle on top of those 2.  If you do this carefully, your twine won’t be in the glue and then you can slide your balls wherever you want to position them when you are done.  I just added a small amount of glue to each side and topped with the 3rd circle.

Continue doing so with your circles until your garland is the desired length and cut off the end of your twine.  Make sure to leave enough to hang it on this end as well.

That is it!  I think this would look lovely in a nursery or child’s room, with Christmas paper for the Holidays, to decorate for a birthday party, or so many other uses! I may make one to match my master bedroom and hang it in there on a wall with some photos.
