DIY Rainbow Wreath Tutorial

This easy peasy rainbow wreath is what I made to add a little color and fun to my daughters simple party decor.  Easy and simple and BAM…a pop of color! We didn’t have a lot of time this year to make a big party for her but of course we wanted something fun and simple and memorable. I did a little cowgirl party (which I may do again and ELABORATE!) and made these cute little wreaths to add some color to her ‘party corner’. Our two daughters thought they were sooo cool and pretty! I just may have to do this again for the spring.  Maybe on the front door to add a little welcoming color.

Here’s the super simple DIY tutorial for this awesome rainbow wreath!

First up, the Supplies: Cardboard (I used a cereal box), colored paper, scissors, and a hot glue gun.  Not pictured here: Cutting mat,straight edge, utility knife, and a bowl (or something round of varying sizes) to trace a circle.

Step four: Cut the colored paper into strips (mine were an inch and a half wide).

Step five: Cut your strips in half (mine ended up being about three inches in length so this step depends on the length of your paper to begin with).

Step six: Arrange your strips of paper to be how you might like them on your wreath.
