Back in February, my oldest turned 6! He wanted a How to Train Your Dragon party. I love finding ways to do DIY birthday projects on the cheap. Cardboard is my best friend. I use it for SO many things when planning a party. Click to see how I used cardboard in my Ninja Turtle and Frozen parties.
Read on to find out how to make this awesome Toothless wreath.
Take a piece of cardboard and draw the shape of Toothless’s head. Cut it out. I usually use a utility knife for this part.
Then you’re going to need a bunch of felt cut into small circles. I usually take a small cup or something and trace one (or just eyeball it). This is a great project to do while you’re watching your favorite television show.
Then take your piece of felt, fold it over once and hot glue it to the cardboard. You may need to glue it before you fold it over for extra stability.
Do this over and over and over and over again. 🙂
Attach a piece of ribbon to the back and you’ve got yourself a really cute “wreath” for your front door!
I’ve seriously done these types of wreaths so many times for different parties and seasons because it’s easy and inexpensive. You can also use foam instead of cardboard (a bit more expensive) and pin them to the foam. Here are some other examples of doing this type of wreath (click on the photo for the tutorial).
