I have been wanting to try this wreath that I pinned around Christmas. I wanted to use it the rest of the year, not just at Christmastime, so I decided to use black and white scrapbook paper, found at Amazon. It was an easy project.
I simply cut out scraps of paper and mod podged them to the clothespins. Then I used one of my kids' bowls to draw a circle, then cut out the circle and cut another circle opening in the middle.
Then I simply attached the finished pins to the cardboard circle...
Another project I have wanted to try is a photo block, so I went and bought a 2x6 piece of wood for a little over $4 and had my husband cut into squares, which are really 5 1/2" x 5 1/2", because a 2x6 really isn't 6". I sanded the block, then mod podged a piece of the same scrapbook paper and a photo of my kiddos...I painted strokes down (vertically) then across (horizontally) to give it a textured look. A piece of twine finished it off.
I love them...can't wait to make these for gifts. I'm going to try a paint technique with them next. I'll be sure to share. :-)
And I paired it with my wreath...love 'em!
