Bloggy Olympics Event #1: Decorating!

I am super excited about this first event in the Bloggy Olympics! I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do, but a few minutes hours on Pinterest later and I had an idea. I'm sure most of you by now have seen these adorable flower balls on Pinterest. I think they are super cute for weddings or little girls birthday parties, but I wanted to do something for the Fourth of July.

So I came up with the idea to do the same thing but with a wreath and stars instead of flowers and a ball! This was probably one of the easiest projects I have done in a while, except for the fact that my index finger is killing me from all the times I stabbed myself with the pins. 

 The materials are really simple: foam wreath, scrapbook paper, star hole punch, straight pins, and ribbon. Start punching away and then start pinning away!

 Here's my wreath with just a few stars on it, before my fingers started to hate me.

Almost done!
Ready for a close-up! Look at all those amazing stars!

Tada! I love how it turned out! Part of me feels like it needs something in the middle, but I'm not exactly sure what. I hope you like my 4th of July decorating project :) I think I should head to Hobby Lobby and hit up their sale section for some lights to go around the door.

You can check out my link to this project on Delicate Construction and Hating Martha. Hooray for event 1 of the Bloggy Olympics! I can't wait for event 2!
