Creation: Aimee's Felt Flower Wreath
My wreath looks like it was a lot easier than the one I was inspired by. I actually did most of it in the car in the Laser Quest parking lot while waiting for Noah to finish up at a birthday party. I wrapped a styrofoam wreath with 3 rolls of striped black and white ribbon (to make sure it was completely covered) and then cut felt squares into spirals. I wrapped the spirals into flowers and stuck a silver ball-headed pin into the middle. That is all. When I got home, I did glue the ends of the ribbon down but the flowers without glue. Easiest wreath ever.

Creation: Aimee's Paper Plate Wreath
Ok, so my paper plate wreath is not as cool as the other. But this was a lot of work and my hands still smell like coffee. Allow me to explain. First, you take 50 cheap paper plates, soak them in coffee (hence the reason why my hands still smell like coffee), ball them up to wrinkle and lay flat to dry. Then you cut them into spirals. After this step, you burn the edges with a candle and I tried, but I kept setting the plate on fire. (I had a dish of water near by) so I decided to skip that step. Then I ran out of hot glue sticks, which you are supposed to use to glue the flowers onto the wreath. So I decided to just wrap ribbon around the rest. I glued pink pearls in the middle of some of the flowers. I may make some tiny changes before hanging it up. Hers is a halloween wreath, mine will be for winter. I'm happy with it and that's all that matters, right? Although hers is really, really cool but I bet it took her days. Just saying...
Have a great day!
