From ethereal stars dangling over the dining table to christmas cards sent home to the pool noodle wreath we attempted the first time ever: Magazine scrap was abundantly used! Why not? Not only do they give a vintage feel and are super easy to cut, they also stand out from the reds, greens & glitter!
But let me first begin with WHAT NOT TO DO WITH
YOUR POOL NOODLE WREATH.
|Pin it Please!|
You see these super easy Video Tutorials on youtube and think this can be done in a blink of an eye. Yeah ok, a blink is all you need. But..
But the next day it ended up like this! The ends didn't stay taped together properly and it became an oval instead of a round. Had to open it up and re-do the whole wreath!
Avoid Pitfall: Tape the ends in the direction along the noodle instead of perpendicular to it. That’s it! Once you get the circle, wrap your ribbons & bow ties and add some Magazine Scrap on top to finish off!
Tear up some Magazine scrap and tape it tastefully to make quick handmade (+Kid made) Holiday cards
Cut up a few stars and glue over a thin white thread. To hang gracefully from your lamps over the dining table!
