Since it's already MAY, I'm officially in graduation and graduation party mode! I decided I really needed to start kicking the party decorations in gear, so this weekend I worked on a couple of things!
After finding a few ideas on Pinterest (of course), I decided to make a wreath for the front door. I've never tried the deco-mesh wreath before, but after watching a few tutorials online, it looked really simple. I easily found the materials and brought them home and started to work. After 30 minutes, this is what I had:
|It's hard to tell from this picture, but the colors are bright red, sparkly white, and silver.|
This is before I did any "fluffing" of the ribbons. Even though I liked how it turned out, I felt it still needed something that said "graduation", so I made these:
I haven't attached anything yet, but I think (hope) it will be really cute once I'm finished.
I've also been working on designing some other decorations.
Sorry for the poor quality photo. The Silhouette software doesn't allow a "print screen" option, so I only have this crappy cell phone picture.
I plan on using them on some stringed circles and maybe as some cupcake toppers.
I haven't gotten much done, but at least it's a start!
I hope you all are having a wonderful week!!
