For Christmas this year I wanted to give my kids cash. But giving cash can be so impersonal, I wanted to make it special. I made these light up wreaths out of cash for them by pinning the dollar bills and poinsettia die cuts. These were a big hit on Christmas morning.
DIY HOW TO MAKE WREATHS
Wrap the foam ring to decorate. I used a 15.6″ x 2″ foam ring purchased at a craft store. I wrapped it with the widest ribbon I could find.
Pin both the ribbon and cash to the wreath using “U Shaped” 1″ Display pins.
Decorate the wreath.
I used the Stampin Up Poinsettia dies as accents to decorate the wreath. I think they are festive. These dies will be carrying over after the Holiday catalog retires. They are one of the very few carry over items. The Red & Green Foil will be going away when the catalog retires on Jan 4, but will return in next year’s holiday catalog. However, you could switch it up and make these good for many occasions like birthdays, graduation, etc.
Add battery operated string lights. I found a pack of 10 on Amazon (click here). I used velcro to attach the light base to the wreath, then just wrap the lights around.
