Last night we did our annual Girl's Christmas Get Together and this year we decided it would be fun and practical to do an ornament exchange....just the five of us Praiseworthy friends The assignment was given that they all had to be made from the things we already had in our home. Because of my butterfly craziness this year I made these flutter wreaths to give away...and wanted to share a "how-to" with you. It's was a pretty fun and easy one. Plus it's NO SEW!!!
I first used this Martha Stewart butterfly punch to cut out all my butterflies from my favorite scrapbook papers. I don't know how many is on each wreath so punch away and save any leftovers for something clever. I could use these cute little beauties anywhere. I just love them.
You will also need some sort of metal ring, a glue gun, some ribbon and for fun, a little bling.
After you get your butterflies punched out fold them a little bit towards the center so they can fly. Then put a dot of hot glue on your metal ring and add a butterfly. Keep doing that until your ring is full.
Adding the butterflies is the fun part. I made them go every which way and I put them on both sides of the ring so the wreath would look just a cute from the back.
See...after being all filled up it should look just like a wreath...a very small wreath of course. Wait! Wouldn't this be really great looking if it was giant sized? Hmmm... I sort of like that idea.
I added a ribbon and a bow...
and some bling to a few of the butterfly heads. I think this makes it look more like a Christmas wreath. You know those ones that have the berries on them?
After you have made as many as you need then you can have your party, eat yummy food and just enjoy being together.
