I admit it, all I do is play! I play with ideas. I guess I am overly curious and it is normal for me to think: “what would happen if….”. In the case of these children’s toy fairy wings I wondered if the fabric would look cool stretched on one of my Dollar Tree wreath forms. I got a box of 24 recently and am having so much fun decorating the wreath forms.
I hate to brag but I got the fairy wings for 25 cents! LOL! The wreath form cost $1.00. I added a garage sale necklace and took apart a garage sale bracelet for $1.00 each, so I have $3.25 total invested. YAY!
I snipped the wire and it easily pulled out from the fabric. The fabric was easy to stretch and pull taut across the form. Just a dab of hot glue was enough to secure the fabric to the wreath form. A thin stream of hot glue secures the edges where they meet. Working with a thin stretchy material was a dream, I am going to keep that in mind as I need to fill up more wreath forms!
My original plan was to use Borax crystal shells on the wreath. However, I couldn’t come up with a pretty design and still feature the fabulous ombre effects of the fairy wing fabric. So….I dug through my STUFF and found this long three strand soft mint green necklace.
Then I tried the Borax crystal shells. NOPE, the shells weren’t doing it. I discovered the apricot flower bracelet this weekend at a garage sale, and I think it was the perfect compliment. TA- DAH!
I am happy with my Wreathapalooza results so far. My goal was to make something I have never seen before.
