It won't be long until I hear the school bus roaring through our neighborhood! Today, I made a wreath for our door to get the kids in the spirit of "Back to School!" This is a big year for Boomer as he heads off to Kindergarten (yes, I have bought my box of tissues)...
I went to Michael's today with a 40% off coupon and purchased the wreath form (green foam), and and unfinished frame. I had the following: black polka dot fabric, red acrylic paint, red felt, and white ribbon.
You will need to cut the fabric in 1 inch wide strips and wrap and hot glue the fabric around the wreath form.
I painted the unfinished frame red and as it dried I was able to wrap the wreath with the fabric.
I printed the "Back to School" on cardstock paper (my front door is protected so I don't have to worry too much about the fading).
Next, I made the "banner" by hot gluing white ribbon across the fabric covered wreath. Then, I cut red triangles from the felt and hot glued them over the ribbon.
I had the red felt flowers already made so I attached three of them across the top.
Happy Back to School!!!!

I am a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful children... yes, I am biased... I can be... they are mine! Oh, and a military wife, too, to an amazing husband! I was a teacher of the severely emotionally disturbed for nearly 10 years before I became a mother and made the decision to stay home. No longer having the classroom as a creative outlet, I turned to photography, cake decorating, and now bow creations. I was frustrated with some of the options available as far as the price of photography (my first love) and so I began taking photographs of my children and a few clients as well. You will see more than bows showcased on this blog and I hope you enjoy the creations and become inspired as well. And, yes, Goosie and Boomer are the nicknames of my two favorite creations!
