Since pink and purple have exploded all over the house, the front door was not to be neglected. But because her party is working on a shoestring of a budget whatever was going up must be
TADA! A Sofia the First Wreath for $5!
How to Make a Sofia the First Wreath: Supplies Needed
- foam pool noodle
- duct tape
- white fabric – FREE (leftover sheet from other project)
- push pins
- 2″ scalloped paper punch*
- patterned paper – $3 (Hobby Lobby on sale)
- grosgrain ribbon – $2 (Hobby Lobby on sale)
- hot glue gun
How to Make a Sofia the First Wreath: Instructions
To get started shape the pool noodle into a circle and secure it with masking or duct tape. Wrap that sucker up tight with lots of tape or your circle may pop apart. Trust me.
I used a white sheet cut into strips to cover the wreath. But you could use a plastic tablecloth. Push pins are my favorite way to attach the fabric. They allow me to strip the noodle wreath down easy to be reused.
Next you will need to make several sizes of paper pinwheels to place on the fabric covered wreath.
How to Make Paper Pinwheels
To begin you will need pink polka dot scrapbooking paper and other coordinating papers. Take two pieces of paper measuring 12″ x 3″. Make small accordion folds along each piece. My folds were less than 1/2″ wide.
Glue to two folded pieces together to create a circle.
Smush the circle down to form the paper pinwheel. Yes, “smush” is a technical term in the South. 😉
Punch out circles using a 2″ scalloped paper punch*. Use the circles and hot glue to secure the paper pinwheel into place.
What a fun way to welcome our royal guests! Tootsie loved helping to hang her Sofia the First Wreath on our front door.
