Project Pinterest: Summer Wreath

Its Friday!!! I am very excited! Its also the first day of finals, which means a nice quiet day. I've been battling a headache all week, so I'm very much looking forward to quiet.

Its also June 1 (did June sneak up on anyone else?!), which means its time for Project Pinterest!

This month, I pinned this wreath from Mary Pat.

I had lots and lots of paper left over from the decorations for the Asbury Park party, so I decided to make a patriotic themed wreath.

Mine is a little different from Mary Pat's because I made a rectangle. I had leftover foam board, also from the party, and decided to cut it into a wreath shape. The foam board was awesome for two reasons - the total cost of this project $0 and I didn't have to take off my pjs to go to the store!

Then, I covered the white board with left over yellow tissue paper, so yellow would show through the center of each flower.

I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I do want to add a dimensional accent to it somewhere, but I can't decide where to place it. Do you have any suggestions?

So awesome you did a rectangle wreath! I loved Mary Pat's too when she posted it! I think an accent in the lower right hand corner our maybe something L shaped like a flourish in the left corner?

This is so pretty! I love the idea of the yellow to show through as the flower centers! Wishing you a happy weekend! I hope that you can rest and get rid of that headache!

Love your cute new siggy! (I forgot to mention that in my last comment). This wreath is so cute! I love anything patriotic and this reminds me a little of fireworks and flowers! So great that you used left over paper and the rectangle shape is really mod! I need to pull out my patriotic stuff, I usually leave it up from Memorial Day-Labor Day but this year I'm so behind!

So cute.
I like the shape.
Since it is for the 4th of July, why not add a fire cracker or something like that for the dimension you want.
