You’re a Star!, Wreath Tutorial, Guest

I feel like I haven’t highlighted a craft in a while so I thought I would show off this one from Brandy at Gluesticks.  It looks cute easy and is inexpensive!  Perfect!

Aaron and I made this fun cardstock wreath for our front door. Nice and bright with summer colors and easy to customize for any season. How cute would it be in red, white and blue for the 4th of July, or made with fun Christmas paper?
We started by cutting out a bunch of stars using the Plantin Schoolbook cricut cartridge. We made them using the “roly poly” feature so that they would be wide. Sturdy cardstock works best for making these, but I didn’t have it in anything other than solid colors. So we cut the stars out in white sturdy cardstock and glued stars that were cut in pretty scrapbooking paper on top of them.

Now we’ll show you how to make your stars 3-D!Below is one all ready to be scored. The white cardstock is under the bright paper.
Score your star 5 times. Once for each point. Start at the point and score directly across to the center between the two bottom points. Rotate star and score again until each point has been scored.Fold each scored line and crease firmly.
There is your 3-D star! Now finish up the rest of them and you’ll be ready to assemble the wreath or use them for any number of fun little projects.

I cut out a ring for my wreath out of thin cardboard. It is about 10″ wide.

Hot glue the stars to the ring and eachother. Since they stick out, you can’t glue them flat, so just apply a small amount of glue to the points where the stars overlap eachother. Don’t skimp on the glue. Mine is glued in little dabs all over the place.

Attach a ribbon for hanging.

That’s it! Perfect for summer. I just love free projects!
Great Job Brandy!
