I love my new patriotic front door wreath!!
I had fun putting this together, although I must admit this is more of an adult craft than one for kiddos. I was inspired by this article in Family Fun magazine.
I didn't have quite everything I needed for this one, but all I had to purchase was a few sheets of scrapbook paper and some double-sided tape. Then all I had to gather up were some scissors, regular Scotch tape, a ruler and some cardboard.
First I cut four (5"x 6") pieces of each paper.
Then by placing a piece of double-sided tape on one of the short ends of the papers, I rolled them into cones, pressing the seams together well.
Then I cut a 10" circle out of cardboard and began to stick the cones on it. I used another piece of double-sided tape to stick the cones on, arranging them in a circular pattern.
Next I used regular Scotch tape to attach them on the back to the back of the cardboard.
After getting all the cones on, I was ready for my centerpiece. Here I strayed from the Family Fun tutorial and used some (free downloadable) clip art from Martha Stewart. I attached the center medallion with double-sided tape. I LOVE the way it turned out!
Finally I was ready to hang up my wreath.
So using a piece of navy ribbon and a stapler, I attached the ribbon to the top of the cardboard and was ready to go!
My new front door beauty!!
