Tidbit Tuesday-Go Round

Hello Everybody!

Today's Tidbit Tuesday is about going outside the square box--into a circle one!

I made this wreath for football season.  We like to have a decoration on our front door and didn't have anything going from 4th of July to Halloween.  Feast your eyes...

So as I was getting the photos ready for this post, I realized that it fits the challenge over at The Game: Round.  Yippee!  I'm excited.  There's still plenty of time, so when you're done here go check out the challenge.  :)

I am also linking this to the Anything Goes Challenge at Unique Crafters Challenge.  There is still plenty of time to play at this challenge too! :)

So here are some of the details on my wreath.

This is a smooth wreath that I bought from Michael's.  I covered it in Gesso and then painted it with a glossy black acrylic paint.

I used my Making Memories Slice Machine to make the letters.  Then I ran each letter through my Xron machine (the 5 inch one) using the laminate/permanent adhesive cartridge.  I put toothpicks on the bottoms of the letters and used Scotch tape to make sure the stayed on the letters.  Then I pushed them through the styrofoam wreath.

The football is from Party City.  I used 2 strands of embroidery floss to go through the football to attach it to the wreath.  Also, I used embroidery floss to hang the wreath.

Here's another close up.  I don't make a lot of wreaths so I am pretty excited about this one.  My husband likes it too!

Until next time my friends...get out the chips and dip-It's football season!
