This is my first decoration ever for 4th of July. I figured it was time that I should have at least least one! Since my Gumball wreath turned out so well I decided I would try to make another wreath with some other sort of candy. I saw these twizzler bites in the candy section and they became the perfect inspiration for this wreath.
Used 3 and a 1/4 pkg of these Twizzler bites. I also let them sit out for a few days so that they would harden. Made it a a lot easier to glue them onto the wreath form.
Glued these on with my hot glue gun. All the outer bottom pieces I trimmed to half their size so they would be flush with the wreath form. Before I spray painted the wreath, I took my glue gun and filled in the holes in between the wreath form and Twizzler bites where there was some bigger gaps.
I primed the wreath with flat white spray paint than sprayed with the Global Blue Krylon spray paint. When the blue paint was dry, I then sprayed a clear protective coat over the whole wreath to preserve it. Did the same for my Gumball wreath so that I could use it again next year.
For the fabric wreath hanger I taped diagonal stripes onto 6" width white cotton fabric and used red Acylic paint for the stripes.
I cut the stars with my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge. The star sizes I used was 3 1/2", 3", 2 1/2" and 2" stars. I then used pop dots that I hot glued to the wreath to make the stars stand out.
