It is Monday Made It again at 4th Grade Frolics! I should be recovering from my surgery today. So, I decided to make my wreath prior to my surgery since I don't know how I'll be feeling. Making this was actually relaxing and it was great to get to put something together while my son was at Preschool.
I was inspired by Tessa at Nine & Sixteen to create this wreath. There are so many creative and cute ones, but I was drawn to the pink. I'll be hanging this up next to our classroom door. I followed Tessa's tutorial (minus the floral wire, I used thread I had).
Here are the materials I used. I did use pink polka dot ribbon from the Dollar Tree it isn't pictured here. The tissue is from the dollar section at Target. Oh, and I didn't need that much paper.
It was pretty easy after I got my "practice" paper flowers done. Those got tossed in the trash. Then, I got better as I went.
Since my wreath is rather small it didn't take to long to get it covered. Now, for my Welcome Sign. I used some scrap book paper and printed out my welcome and used it to frame the word.
Well I think I have to make the sign a wee bit smaller but overall I'm happy with it. I'll be taking down what I have by my class door and replacing it with this.
Here is my little guy. He would not pose for a picture with his balloon. The balloon was just too fascinating. Happy 3rd Birthday J!
