This will be part 1 of 3 for birthday news I’ll start with the easiest one making a birthday wreath.
I’ve made one of these before for christmas but that time it was with wool . As last time the idea for this came from the book Everything Oz by Read-Baldrey & Leech. It is so easy and fast to make I think I finished it during an episode of Taskmaster (half an hour in earth time).
It’s not rocket science, just pin the back of the ribbon to the polystyrene ring. (note I bought my ribbon at 79p a meter and then found 15 meters in Tiger for a pound. It’s worth shopping around).
Then wrap it round until they meet. I then cut down some fake flowers I bought (man fake flowers are expensive) and secured the base of each one with dress pins. I had some mini cards so in they went and then I glued some photocopy pictures of Alice In Wonderland to card stock and secured them with dress pins too.
The number 5 was reduced in Hobby craft so I just pined that one to the back.
I think it works better than the crappy foil banners you buy at every card store.
