The Beautiful

Everybody needs a patriotic wreath.  As always, I saw one made on another blog and can't remember the blog name. 

  -clothespins (about 100)
  -hot glue gun
  -any decorating accessories

Trace a circle onto your cardboard, I used a large mixing bowl as my template.  Then cut out your cicrle.  I used the next size down mixing bowl to trace another circle.  This created a cardboard "halo" piece.  Next begin the glue your clothespins onto the carboard.

After completing the entire circle, I gave the clothespins a clear coat.  I wanted a bit of shine.  I then added some red, white, and blue flowers to the bottom portion.  And finally I hung the wreath with a red and white gingham ribbon.

I think the wreath would be nice for any spring/summer holiday. You could add Easter eggs, fabric flowers, back to school accessories, etc.

Have a sweet day!
