How's this for a great summer project? You can make this so easily for your home! I have a storm door to protect it, and since I did make it from paper, I would suggest a protected, or interior, spot for yours as well.
The base for this wreath is a little different - it is a flat wooden/MDF candle ring that I found in the floral design section of Michaels. The manufacturer is a company called 3 Ring Circles; they come in a variety of sizes for not much money! I painted it with acrylic paints and then started cutting out Spellbinders Stars from red and blue cardstock, and some glossy silver paper that I had on hand. To give your stars dimension, I recommend stacking them with foam adhesive and outlining them with contrast highlights (here I used a Krylon Red Shimmer Leafing Pen on the navy stars). I cut a paper banner to go across the center and added WELCOME cut from Spellbinders' Indulgence Font. (I love the versatility of this font!) Add a little matching ribbon to hang it from, and you have an inexpensive, seasonal decoration that, with a little care, you can enjoy for years to come.
