Birthday Wreath

....look at me, I finished it... just in time for her birthday tomorrow.  It's already hanging on my front door so that everybody that drives by can see it, because I'm sure that everyone looks at my front door when they drive by my house, but they will when they see this beauty.

Lets start from the beginning.....  while at Home Depot buying spray paint for my Halloween tree we walked down the pluming aisle don't ask my why, but we did,  I noticed this foam stuff that they had, so I picked the little feller' up and thought to myself this will work, all I need to do is tape the ends together and its only .97 wa-la, beets making another stop to the dollar store for a wreath, and you could get two wreaths out of it.
 Just cut the length that you need and tape the edges together.
Cover the wreath with fabric
I was lazy and taped the fabric on.
And I was even more lazy when it came to cutting strips of fabric....I already had these cut out, so i just used what I had. comes my favorite part, adding all the fab-u-lous 

a crown for the birthday girl with a paper flower
 some paper dollies

and here it is all finished 
I used my cricut for the crown, #2, and celebrate.
and here's her cupcake birthday plate.  I glued a plate and a glass bowl that I turned upside down together with E-6000 glue.

Thanks for Looking!!
