You could customize this project for any occassion, or you could make one "just because" to hang on your front door. I'm thinking of hanging this one in front of the window in Lucy's new room.
You'll also need a pair of wire cutters, hot glue gun, scissors, needle and thread, and utility knife.
Let's get started...
1. Trace the bottom of your crown on the foam. Then, using the utility knife, cut out the circle slightly smaller than the line you traced. Your foam circle should easily slip in and out of the base of the crown, because you will be adding bulk with the organza and the ribbon. Don't make it too small though. You basically want it to be so snug that, in the end, it will hold itself into place once the organza and ribbon are added to it.
3. Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to go around the foam circle and glue into place over the tulle.
4. Now push the foam circle up into the bottom of the crown so the fabric hangs down nicely. You may need to add hot glue to secure the foam into the crown, but mine was such a snug fit that stayed by itself.
5. Using the wire cutters, snip individual stems from the floral spray. Then push the stems into place through the top of the crown into the foam.
6. Cut a piece of ribbon for the hanger. Tie each end onto opposite sides of the crown making sure the crown will hang level.
Ta Da!!! Wasn't that easy? I can't tell you how many compliments I got on this hanger while I was in the hospital. I think it is so unique. Much better than a sad little wreath, don't you think?
Sorry I don't have more pictures to share. If my instructions aren't clear, or if you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them.
Now go out and make one for yourself, your friend, your sister, etc. etc. etc.
