Instructions

First I traced around a large charger type dinner plate on to my chipboard. I made two and used a sharp scalpel/craft knife to cut them out. Then I traced around a smaller plate in the middle to make a ring and cut it out. I then lined the two pieces of chipboard up and used this as a template for my second circle before again using a sharp scalpel/craft knife to cut. I sanded down all the rough edges and stuck the two rings together with PVA glue. Once dry I was left with a strong and sturdy chipboard ring that was ready to be my wreath base. I chose a nice Christmas decoupage paper to cover the ring. It doesn’t really matter what you choose to cover it as you will only see peaks of it in the end. You could just paint it if you liked. I inked all my edges in a matching ink.

Next I created a scroll type banner. I found a free image on Pinterest, saved it, enlarged it to fit across my wreath and printed it out. I used it as a template to draw around onto black cardstock. I then stamped a Christmas sentiment in white ink, used the snowflake stencil to add some pattern and added some of the grayboard snowflakes too. I added a few gems for a touch of Christmas sparkle too. I added the banner to the bottom of the wreath with foam pads.

Next take the star stencils and draw a selection of large and small stars on your cardstock and cut them out. Next take a ruler and scoring tool; I used a pen here to show you the lines.

Fold along each long line and in the opposite direction for the short line to make a 3D barn star.

Keep going until you think you have enough stars.

Next take a hot glue gun and start adding your stars. But before you do, don’t forget to add a ribbon for hanging it up. Tie it on as you can cover the knot with a star. I used the large ones on the base and then layered all the smaller ones around the top. Just keep adding until you are happy with the amount of stars on your wreath.

And there you go, a simple wreath that looks stunning and shows you just how versatile Bubbly funks stencils are as I have showed you a scrapbook layout, tags, Christmas cards and now a home décor project. Have a try yourself folks.
