All Things Thrifty – Baby Name Hoop Art

Hi y’all! I’m popping in real quick to let you know I’m over at All Things Thrifty again today! I’m sharing how I made this DIY hoop art for Lucy’s nursery. It’s great for children’s’ rooms, or you could do your last name or initial for a fun front door wreath. So much fun!

Make Your Own : Paper Laurel Wreath

Previously posted on All Things Thrifty

Hi there! Y’all know I’m all about easy crafts, and this one definitely falls into that category. These mini laurel wreaths are the perfect way to welcome Spring! 

Make your own : Paper Laurel Wreath

You will need a grapevine wreath form {I wanted to make mini-wreaths, so I bought small forms from my craft store}, green scrapbook paper in a variety of patterns, ribbon, and hot glue. You probably have most of this in your craft supply stash already!

The first step is to cut a bunch of leaf shapes out of your scrapbook paper. You don’t need a template for this – just freehand a basic leaf shape. It doesn’t matter if your shapes look a bit wonky.

Paper Laurel Wreath : cut out your leaf shapes

I used a total of 16 leaves on each of my mini-wreaths. Get that hot glue gun warmed up! The next step after cutting your leaves is to turn them into 3D shapes by pinching the bottoms together and glueing.

Once all of your paper leaves are ready to go, it’s time to start attaching them to the wreath form. I recommend laying out your desired pattern before hand so you have a good idea of what your finished product will look like. Now you can begin glueing your leaves to the wreath form. You can also glue the leaves to each other’s sides so they stay in place.

After you have your leaves placed and attached, you can add a bow between each side of leaf groups. I just tied a bow with white grosgrain ribbon and hot glued it to the center.

Now you’re ready to hang your new, beautiful creation wherever you please! This wreath looks beautiful on the front door or layered on a mirror.

I also played around with hanging the mini wreaths on the back of my dining chairs. I have an adorable tea party in mind that these would be perfect for! 

Where would you hang your Laurel Wreath?

Oh baby, baby!

Hi y’all. Yes, I dropped off the face of the planet again…but for the very best reason! Many of you know that my husband and I have been in the midst of the adoption process. Last Wednesday, we got a surprise call….that we had a daughter and could come meet her the very next day!

I hope to be back soon! :)
