Back to School Wreath

August is a tough month for seasonal wreaths, isn't it? Summer isn't quite over but fall isn't here just yet. So instead of leaving the patriotic wreath up for an extra month, I made this. Perfect timing too since my daughter is about to start preschool:)



Supplies needed:

Styrofoam wreath
Ribbon (to cover wreath)
Various colored fabric
Hot glue gun
School accessories

Directions:
1. Cover the styrofoam wreath with ribbon, so that styrofoam does not peek through.
2. Cut 4"x6" pieces of fabric. Make a fan with each piece and tie in the middle with a piece of thread.
3. Use a hot glue gun to attach the fabric to the wreath.
4. Arrange school accessories and attach with hot glue gun.


I found all of the supplies at Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Don't forget to check the dollhouse and Barbie sections for cute school accessories!
