I saw this AWESOME "wreath" that Dave's Wife made and fell in love! I already have a new summer wreath for my front door, but I thought my kids could use a smaller version for their door decor!

I made one for each, but the light was best outside of Finn's room! :)
I started with an 8" embroidery hoop I already had from a long abandoned project:
And then wrapped it in white yarn. (Also chosen because it was what I already had!)
Then I spent a Glee episode making pinwheels from leftover scraps of scrapbook paper. They are soooo easy to make! I made some last summer for a cousin's baby shower so I didn't need a tutorial, but A Subtle Revery has one if you need it. You just cut a square of paper and then cut diagonally in towards the center, stopping short of the middle. I secured my pinwheels with little gold brads I already had. Then you hot-glue those bad-boys on! I also tied a length of yarn across the wreath and hot-glued triangles of paper across as a banner. I used rub-ons for the letters.
I love how they turned out! (Plus I like to toot my horn...) But if I was doing a do-over I'd just go buy a different color of yarn. It's like a whopping dollar and the white on white could be perked up. But I still love the new summer update to get ready for Memorial Day and the start of summer!
