This wreath was one I originally covered in tiny pine cones and it had lost a few so I decided to recycle it into a new one for summer.
It didn't take long to peal off all the pine cones. I went to the fabric stash and gathered up some red, white and blue fabrics. This wreath project featured in Mod Podge Rocks! was my inspiration.
I pinned my fabric strips in place and then spread on the Mod Podge to the front and sides. The pins had the added benefit of keeping the wreath elevated. Talk about a crafting twofer!
After the Mod Podge was dry on the 3 sides I spread it on the back taking the pins out as I went and smoothing down the fabric ends.
All that was left to do was glue a few toy army men on and wrap the wreath with a bit of star spangled wire.
If customizing your world by decoupaging with Mod Podge is your thing you will truly be inspired by the book:
