Supplies for the DIY Summer Wreath:


Directions for the DIY Summer Wreath:


First, grab your StrongGrip mat, a sheet of basswood, masking tape, and the knife blade Cricut tool.

Next, choose your favorite font on Cricut Design and get to designing.

Then, stick your basswood on the StrongGrip mat, and secure the sides of the basswood to the mat with masking tape.

Follow the instructions on your Cricut design regarding basswood. Allow at least an hour for the Cricut to cut the basswood.

Once the cut is complete, use your weeding tool to pop your letters out.

Once you are done with the personalized name part of the project, it is time to spray paint.

Spray painting the name

Protip: Spray paint in a well-ventilated area! I always spray paint outside, and just kraft paper to place my project on.

I love the 2x coverage Rust-oleum spray paint; it just took one coat!

Once it dries, you will attach the word(s) to your wreath using floral wire.
