Golden Welcome Wreath




This past weekend Chris and I hosted a barbecue party at our place for a few friends. Naturally I made some decorations for this party! I'd thought I'd share with you all how I made some of the decorations over the next few weeks.

Today I'm going to share the wreath I made that welcomed our guests to our home. Here is what I did:



 What you need:
  • Foam wreath
  • Ribbon
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Circle punch
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft paper
  • Chalkboard label stickers
  • String

First I wrapped ribbon around the foam wreath securing it with hot glue.



Next I punched out small circles from pink, orange, and gold scrapbook paper using a circle punch. I then attached the circles randomly onto the wreath using hot glue.



I wanted a way to say welcome on the wreath using a banner. To do this I first cut out little flags from craft paper. Then I attached chalkboard label stickers onto the tops of the flags. Next I wrote WELCOME on all the flags with chalk. I then hot glued the flags onto string to create a banner.  Finally I attached the banner to the wreath.



Last but not least, I made a loop of ribbon for hanging and.... done!

I think it came out pretty cute if I do say so myself! I originally wanted the little chalkboard banner to fit entirely inside the wreath, but I made the flags a little too big. But I still like it. ; )



Next week I'll share another decoration tutorial, so be sure to stop by!

  1. Stopping by from the linkup! I love this idea, I've been debating about trying something with the foam wreath because between our door and glass door is very shallow so we can't really have a normal wreath. Love the chalkboard stickers, too!
