When I started playing around with design ideas for this 2022 We Create class, I knew that I wanted to create a wreath filled with lots of different stars. As I started arranging them in the standard wreath shape of a circle, I suddenly felt like doing something a little different - a square wreath.
Now I know a square wreath isn't anything revolutionary, it just felt like a nice change of pace from the norm. And, I loved the idea of giving the wreath design a bit more of a boyish look with the straight edges.
Anytime I put together a wreath design (or really any cluster design) I start with my largest pieces first to create a base design. Then I go in with some medium size pieces to fill in the bigger gabs and finish with the smallest pieces filling in the smaller gaps.
I also like to add some dimension with those smaller pieces by adhering them with foam adhesive. For added interest I also added some word/phrase stickers and other die cuts.
I also added my title in as part of the wreath design.
For the middle I added two photos and my journaling. That part was super easy!
