I have showed you the crayon nametag I made for back-to-school night for Isaac’s teacher a few years ago. Well I didn’t want the nametag to sit in a desk drawer all year. So I made a school wreath to display the nametag. When a teacher wants to wear it she can just take it off the wreath. While she isn’t wearing it she has a wreath to display in her classroom.
yarn – (I used Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn in yellow – Michaels)
14” STYROFOAM™ Brand wreath
flower pattern or diecut machine with flower die
1. Start by wrapping a 14” STYROFOAM™ Brand wreath in yarn securing with a floral pin on the back. This takes a long time. I suggest watching a show or a movie while you do this. Wrapping a wreath is not for the impatient.
3. Cut out some notebook paper flowers using a die cut machine or a flower template online. I used two sized flowers stacked on top of each other. Secure those with a thumbtack into the STYROFOAM™ Brand wreath.
4. Secure your nametag pin in place by pinning it onto the wreath.
5. Next string some baker’s twine left to right (wrapping around stick pins) to create a pennant banner. Take a piece of washi tape and fold it over the baker’s twine onto itself. Cut with scissors into your desire pennant shape.
6. Add a length of scrap fabric on the back by securing it with a floral pin.
