Winter Wonderland Wreath

When I received my box of new goodies from the sweet people at Doodlebug I fell in LOVE with the Mix & Match Snowmen from the Frosty Friends Collection. These are just too cute and fun - I had to make something that everyone could look at all the time. 

I started off with a foam circle wreath (from Michaels) and wrapped it with white yarn (also from Michaels). I secured the ends of the yarn using a touch of glue with a hot glue gun. It probably took me about 15 - 20 minutes to completely wrap the wreath. 


Next I picked out a patterned paper for the background in my wreath and cut a circle using my Cameo. Before I glued the paper to the back of my wreath (using a hot glue gun again) I added some snow along the bottom of the circle cut from white cardstock. I choose a few prints from the coordinating 6x6 paper pad to cut out some fun trees and added some sparkle with pretty chunky Doodlebug glitter. 


Once I had my background complete, I added my awesome little snowmen onto the front of the wreath. When I put these guys together I layered them using foam stickers to give them really fun dimension. I love that you are able to mix and match all their accessories! 


I used the super fun new Mini Clothespins to hold my banner. I love to use them to hold my twine! 


My kids were super excited about this project and we are going to love having it on display in our living room!! 


I hope you were inspired to create today!! Thanks for checking out my project using the super fun Frosty Friends Collection
