Carter's Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Project #2 - Mickey Mouse Wreath

For Carter's Mickey Mouse birthday party, I wanted to make something cute to hang on the front door, but I was out of ideas.  I needed something easy and inexpensive.  I was lucky enough to run across this tutorial on Serendipity (Cristin has such a fun blog - be sure to check it out!), and I decided to make a tissue paper wreath.  I purchased the Martha Stewart fringe scissors that she recommended (on Amazon), and they made this project SO much easier.  Now I'm looking for other things to use my scissors on!

Here are some pictures of my completed wreath.  I embellished it with some die cuts that I purchased on Etsy (very inexpensive) but you ladies lucky enough to have a Silhouette machine or a Cricut could make your own.  I also added a paper-covered letter "C" (used Mod Podge to cover it) and some coordinating ribbons.  Total time spent on this project was around a couple of hours - super easy!





Now I'm thinking of so many other possibilities for these cute wreaths.  I am going to make an Easter one next.  Let me know if you make your own, I would LOVE to see them!




More easy and inexpensive projects to come, as well as full party details and pics.  Thanks for letting me share!
