Racing Decoration {Checkered Flag Wreath}

I have teamed up with Styrofoam Crafts and Tatertots & Jello for the next six months to show you a wreath a month.  Since I live in the racing capital of the world I can’t help but notice the buzz happening around town for the Brickyard 400 which is happening in 12 days.  I am no racing fan myself but I have a friend throwing a party just for the occasion and I thought I would give her a hand with some decorations.  This racing wreath would be good for a Nascar themed party or home décor for the Nascar man cave.  Men need wreaths too, right? {giggle}.

Supplies:

12” STYROFOAM™ Brand wreath

Racing Flag Tooth picks (10 packages of them)

Brickyard 400 or another racing logo

Repositionable adhesive

I was inspired by the American Flag wreath by Oodle Kaboodle Primitives.  This is the easiest wreath I think I have ever made.  All you really have to do is stick the racing flag picks into the wreath.  I got 10 packages of the racing flag toothpicks from Zurchers.  They have a ton of other checkered flag party supplies if you need other décor as well. I started in the center and filled that in first.  Then I chose a section of the wreath to start and I angled the picks downward to cover as much surface area as possible.  500 toothpicks stuck into a STYROFOAM™ Brand wreath later and I have myself a checkered flag wreath.

Then I just printed out the Brickyard 400 logo on white cardstock and used repositionable adhesive to stick it in the middle.  When the race is over you can remove the logo and print a new one for the next race.

I think it is an adorable way to welcome your Nascar loving friends to your party.
