What do the 4th of July and Christmas have in common? Stars!!! I tried my hand at making a Froebel Star wreath. It took me quite a bit to figure it out successfully make a star without tearing the paper. I jokingly told my husband..."and I thought I was smart! lol!" You can give this wreath a try and don't be frustrated if you don't get it right with one try. Lighten up...it's just paper! :-D
Here is the link that I used to make this wreath: http://www.craftideas.info/html/german_star_wreath_c.html. You will need to make 8 stars to form the wreath. The tutorial can be found here: http://www.craftideas.info/html/german_star_instructions.html. I used strips of paper measuring 1"x25". It wasn't sparkly enough, so I misted the paper with Shimmerz Baby's Breath and brushed it with Ranger's Perfect Pearls--then I dotted some pearls at the center of the stars. I added tulle at the back to make it easier to hang the wreath.
I'm also sharing this project with the bloggers at http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/.
