I try to find a cool location, and this year we planned on taking our pics on the front porch of an old, abandoned house. Kinda cool, but could be kinda creepy.
So I decided we needed a prop to lighten it up a bit. I settled on a red wreath made from 250 felt circles.
It was just the right touch.
Here's how I did it...
1 yd. red felt (I think I might go get another half yard to fill it in a bit more)
a cup with a 3 inch diameter (or however big you want your circles to be)
a stamp pad (I used yellow to show up on the red but not be too dark)
scissors (make sure they are comfortable because you will be cutting a lot of circles)
Here's a small section so you can see how they start to come together. And here is the finished product, nailed (shhhh! don't tell anyone) to the front door... I suppose I should have gotten a closer picture of the wreath, but I was dealing with 3 cranky kiddos at the time and we had a long photo shoot ahead of us. I also made a white, felt circle wreath last year that I'll post a picture of later. They are just so ruffley (new word?) and fun!
Now I just need to figure out what kind of card for this year. (I'll show you our cards from last year on Tuesday. They were really fun to make!)
Happy Thursday Everyone!
