The Easiest Summer Burlap Wreath

June 22, 2012

Remember when my Rock Star Burlap Wreath went on a Springtime Tour?
You know, the Rock Star Wreath that may have more twitter followers then Lady Gaga
Maybe more facebook friends then Mark Zuckerberg
and I am thinking more stage props and dancers then Celine Dion in her Las Vegas shows?
Well, my rock star is going on a summer tour.

To get me started with an appropriate costume change, and
in the spirit of summer, I decided to add some stars in traditional summer fabrics and a mossy butterfly. 
For my stars, I created a star to use as a template and traced it onto the fabrics.
I applied the mod podge solution to the stars, put the fabric on top and applied a second coat of Mod Podge.
 When the the stars were dry, I used 3D Adhesive Mounts to stack and secure the stars into position on the wreath
Once the stars were completed, I wanted them to have their own "dancer" and created a mossy butterfly.
I applied Mod Podge clear acrylic sealer over the butterfly to help restore the look.
The stars also got a coat of sealer.
Awesome performance, ugh?
And for an encore....
Eat your heart out J Lo, but I think my dancers are hotter!
