Hey ya'll! Life has been crazy these days, but I have several projects that I've finished to blog about soon. I just got engaged, and I have been crafting like crazy with DIY projects--thrifted DIY projects of course--for our wedding! Today I wanted to show you my patriotic wreath that I made before Memorial Day...the best thing is that it cost about $8 to make! I got all of the yarn from the thrift store. The prices of each color varied by how much was on each roll! The red yarn was $1.00, the blue was 75cents, and the white was 50 cents. I got a white foam wreath from Hobby Lobby for about $4.00 using a coupon on my phone and then I found some cute star buttons on clearance there for 96 cents each!
Here are all my materials (red, white, and blue yarn, star buttons, and a foam wreath). I measured the foam wreath, and used a pencil to mark where each section of yarn would go. I started out with red yarn, and used a hot glue to make a dot to start placing the yarn onto the foam wreath. When I was finished with the red section, I put one more drop of hot glue to keep the yarn in place. I repeated this method with the white and blue yarn. When all of the yarn was on the wreath I used hot glue to put these cute star buttons on it for the finishing touch!
These star buttons were a great deal on clearance!
My cute Army boyfriend (now fiancee) helped me untangle the red yarn! He's learned that I'm always coming up with some kind of project to do!
