Interchangeable Bunting Wreath {Valentine’s Project}

4 Jan
 
I combined my love of glitter + bunting into a little  
{Valentine’s Wreath}
And I thought it might be fun to make the bunting interchangeable so the wreath could be kept out for more than one holiday or season 🙂

You can make one for any occasion 
Fall and Halloween,  
Christmas and New Years, 
Easter and Summer,  
Birthday and everyday…. 
Here’s what you need: 
*A wreath form — mine was from Dollar Tree
Fabric – what kind depends on what you want your bunting to look like
Ribbon to match your fabric
Mod Podge
Glitter
Ribbon to hang your wreath
Fabric for your rosettes {1″ wide by 18 inches long for each}
Letters to spell words on your bunting — optional
Here’s how to make one of your own: 
Start off with a Wreath — mine was one I had on hand from the Dollar Store. 
Ella was my very helpful assistant!!
**Note – it will take a lot less glitter to start off with a white wreath – lol. Brush on some Mod Podge and glitter, lots of glitter!!!

I used Martha Stewart Tourmaline Glitter. Such a pretty pink/purple color.

To keep the glitter on the wreath long-term, spray the wreath with some clear spray paint.
Make a template. You need to factor in that you are going to sew the pennants – unless you aren’t going to sew them, lol. 
 
I wanted mine to 3/4 inches wide so I added 1/4″ inch to all sides, making the template 1 1/4″ wide by 1 3/4″ long. Then sew each pennant and then turn them right side out.
 Once the pennants are sewn, iron them flat.
Hannah helped me with this step!
 Lay your ribbon out on the wreath and pin the pennants onto the ribbon.
Glue the pennants on to the ribbon.
Make some rosettes to cover up the edges of the ribbon. Check out my Rosette Tutorial if you want to learn how to make these easy flowers.
Use a plain pin or cut the top off a pin and push the pin through the center of the rosette and through the ribbons to secure the bunting.
The last thing you can do is print off some letters if you want to spell something out — like Happy Birthday, Happy New Year, Happy Halloween or anything else you want! I used my Silhouette, but if you don’t have one, you can use some sticky letters from your craft store!!
Have a Great Day!!
