4th of July wreath

I made this today. Do you ever finish a project and think Oh, I should have done this or that instead? ( kinda like I should have had a V8!) I used glitter paper for the fireworks and glitter gelpens for the stitching on the 4th of July center piece. But after I was done, I thought Duh! I should have glittered it. I could have used my xyron or I just got a versamark pen yesterday, I could have done the stitching with that and added glitter!! Oh, well, maybe next year!!
here it is laying on my table

and here it is hanging on my door. I like it but I wish I had thought to use some glitter!!
Thanks for looking!


  1. Oh I love it! So very creative!

  2. hello can you give me instruction how make it wreath it so beautiful and very amazing idea. please email me the instruction. here is i want to share to teach my deaf/hearing student at cricut class.

  3. Carrie.. you did a really great job on this wreath!! I love it. I have made projects and did the same thing where I wished I would have add this or added that. But, it turned out gorgeous and I really love it. What did you use for the base of the wreath? Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about my dads pictures. I am going to make a scrapbook of him and I can't wait. I need to have my aunt send me the pictures so I can copy them and get the best resolution as possible. When my dad was in the Vietnam war he got a lot of medals but they disappeared after he died so I hired some one who can get copies of records while my dad was in the war and I got those. I also got replacement medals that he earned. So I have so many ideas and I am definetly going to make an albulm about him. But thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Do you have pictures of the albulm that you made for your great grandparents? I would love to see what you did. I bet it turned out justamazing!! I hope you have a great weekend and 4th of July. Our firewords are tomorrow night. I love this wreath so much, I would love to hear how you made it!! Terri of Two Pink Peas
