A Wreath for the 4th {Giveaway!}

I had a chance to go by Hobby Lobby this weekend, and when I ran across these pinwheels, I knew I had to do something with them. (Especially, since they were 30% off-- have I said before I have a hard time turning down bargain crafting supplies?)

Anyway, I found these cute little stars that after discount were 70 cents for 3, a wreath and some blue ribbon and got to work a couple nights ago.

When I got home, I scavenged around for some vintage brass buttons-- new ones would work just as well.

I wrapped my wreath in ribbon and secured  it with my trusty-but-way-too-hot glue gun. 

Hot glue was also used to make my pin wheels and attach buttons in the centers.

I inserted the stars, bent the wires and applied a lot of glue to keep them in place.

Then, I placed a pinwheel over the wires to hide the massive glob.

Here's the result:

And, because I had some extra pinwheels when I was done, I made a smaller (slightly different version) to share with one of you!

Again, this will be open to Wichita area readers only, so that I can hand deliver it. (Sorry! I promise my next giveaway will be open to everyone... I just don't think it would reach you before the 4th if I mailed it!)

My plan is to spend time with you! ;) No, really it is. Like your wreaths. It's kinda funny I was thinking about making something very similar.
