“Hunny” Gardening Pot – Inspired by Winnie the Pooh | Level 1

Winnie the pooh terracotta pot plant

Why, hello there! This project is fun and easy for the whole family that is inspired by the laziest lump of fluff we all know and love: Winnie the Pooh. You’ll be creating your own honey–or “hunny”–pot filled to the brim with that sticky yellow goodness. Let’s see what you’ll need:


Supplies List:Tools List:
Terracotta PotMedium Sized Paint Brush
Purple Outdoor PaintLiner Paint Brush or White Paint Pen
Saffron Yellow Outdoor PaintLarge Paint Brush
White Acrylic PaintDisposable Cup
Rocks (for drainage- if the pot doesn’t have a hole at the bottom)Painter’s Tape

Instructions

Place your Terracotta Pot onto a bit of cardboard or a paper bag.

Mix together the White Paint with the Purple Outdoor Paint in a separate cup to create a lighter purple color.

Paint the entire outside of your pot excluding the bottom. Try to brush horizontally along the pot with the grain.

Let it dry and apply a second coat if you wish.

Once dry, Use some painter’s tape and place the top edge of the tape about 2 inches from the bottom of the pot. Try to make a straight line with that top edge of the tape all the way around the pot.

Use the purple outdoor paint (not the light one you mixed) and paint a big thick band around the pot.

You can use a large rubber band that fits snuggly to the pot to create a straight top line, but I just went for it.

Let it dry.

Grab your Saffron Yellow Outdoor Paint and start painting drips of honey on the top edge of your pot. You can draw little swoops and squiggles and fill them in with the paint. Paint them in different sizes and add long drips to make it more believable.

I wouldn’t recommend the brand of paint I used for the honey. It was very sheer and I had to layer it about 4 times.

Let it dry before adding more coats–if necessary. Also, paint the first couple inches inside the pot with the yellow as well.

Use a Liner brush (a brush that is thin and long) to write out the letters: ‘H’ ‘U’ ‘N’ ‘N’ ‘Y’ with the first ‘N’ written backwards in white paint.

Use that same brush to add little highlights to the dripping honey. Choose one side of the drips so it looks like light is coming from the same direction.

Lastly, if your pot doesn’t have a drainage hole, add some rocks to the bottom before planting!

You Made It!

Wow, that was great, everyone! I hope you enjoyed this little craft. I’m sure yours is absolutely adorable! I think it’s perfect for any Disney lover’s garden. The plant I chose to put in my pot is called a Paula Rhodoxis. It has these pretty pink star-shaped flowers and the leaves almost look like cat nip.

Mickey and Friends Pin Wheels | Level 1

Have a blast with these character inspired pinwheels! It’s a subtle nod to Mickey and friends featuring their signature colors. These are functioning pinwheels that use sewing pins so be careful when assembling!


Supplies List:Tools List:
Wooden DowelsScissors
Sewing PinsHammer
Round BeadsNail
Scrapbook Paper (or double sided card stock)Pliers
Scrap PaperScotch Tape
Glue Stick

Instructions

First, select your papers based off of the characters’ signature colors.

I chose a red polka-dot pattern and yellow flower pattern for Minnie, red flowers and black patterns for Mickey, Blue, white and yellow patterns for Donald, a groovy pattern and blue polka-dot pattern for Goofy. They all came from the same paper pack, so the colors were easy to mix and match.

Most of the time, scrapbook paper will be 12×12″, so cut them down to 6×6″.

Using a slicer-dicer works great for getting perfect 90 degree angles.

Match up your papers and place them white side up.

If you’re using double sided paper, you don’t have to do this.

Use a glue stick and apply the glue to one of the two pieces of paper. Carefully place the other piece on top and secure in place. Make sure it has a good bond. If there is white excess, cut off with a scissor.

Diagonally, the squares should be just about 8.5″. Grab a Ruler and measure to the middle of the diagonal (4.25″). From that center point, skip to 3″ and 5.5″ and make a mark.

Draw lines from those points to their respective corners. Repeat for the other diagonal.

Cut along the lines you drew.

As you can see, you are able to pull up four corners and the pin wheel takes shape!

Prepare the Sticks

Take your wooden dowels, a thin nail, and a hammer.

Hammer the nail thru the dowels and pull back out.

I ended up splitting my dowels–they were pretty thin–but I was able to use tape to keep them together.

Putting it all Together

In the middle of each of those corners, poke a hole using a Pin. I didn’t do this until the end on my Minnie Pinwheel, but did it at the beginning for the other pinwheels.

Poke a hold in the middle of your pin wheel as well.

Take some Scrap Paper and cut out small circles to fit over the corners. Poke a hole thru those.

Grab your glue stick and start assembling your corners on top of the center hole. Each hole should stack on top of the previous.

Top it off with the small circle and put the pin thru.

I used different colored pins for each character.

Take a bead and put that over the pin. This helps the wheel spin freely!

Poke everything thru the wooden dowel.

Grab a pair of Pliers and hold the pin wheel securely with your hand as you bend the pin down the side of the wooden dowel.

Tape it in place! Yes the green tape is very jarring, but it faces the back so it doesn’t really matter. You are free to use whatever color tape you have or like, of course.

Repeat the entire process with your other characters!

You Made It!

Great job! I hope you make them because these are so much fun to watch in the summer breeze.

I added some silhouettes of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy to differentiate the pinwheels and be a little more obvious. You can find the Mickey, Donald, and Goofy PDFs from this blog here. I’m so grateful for these! I just used the Mickey and added an eyelash and bow to create Minnie in Illustrator.

Faux Yellow Lilies$3
Additional Faux Flowers/ Greenery$8
Cylindrical Clear Vase$10
Vase Filler$3
Yellow Paper$1
Tracing Paper/Tissue Paper$1
Fairy Lights$5
*Total Approximate Cost of Supplies:$31

Pencil$0
*Total Approximate Cost of Tools:$10
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies. You may have leftovers!
If the cost is $0, I’m assuming you already have these things.


Instructions

Start off by filling the bottom of your Vase with Vase Filler. I used sea glass I already had. Don’t fill it too much. Just enough to raise your “lantern” up a little bit.

Grab your Yellow Paper and roll it to fit inside the vase.

Mark the height of your vase on your paper with a pencil.

Cut the paper across where you marked. I used a straight cutter to get a perfect 90 degree angle.

Make sure you like the height of your paper. I ended up slicing off a little more.

Make a mark where your paper overlaps.

Print out the Sun Template (link in the Tools Table) and pick which size would work best for your vase. I used the smallest size.

Hold up your template under the yellow paper to a window and trace the sun design onto the yellow paper.

Use a Hobby Knife to cut out the shapes. Go slow and take your time! You got this!

Take your Glue Stick and glue around the sun design on the back of your yellow paper and attach your Tracing Paper/Tissue Paper.

You can cut your tracing paper to fit before or after gluing.

This is extra, but you can cut out little shapes surrounding your sun and glue some metallic paper to show thru the holes. My yellow paper had these designs on the front so I just cut a few of those out using my hobby knife.

Glue the rest of the tracing paper down.

Glue your paper into a cylinder where you marked earlier.

Drop in your Fairy Lights. I only had purple, but it looks pretty cool!

Lastly, grab your flowers and arrange how you please! If you need more support for your flowers, you can use a piece of cardboard and cut a hole for your flower stems.

You Made It!

Great work, everybody! I hope you enjoyed this little project inspired by Tangled. It feels very summery and bright! The lilies look a lot like the flower in the movie. It’s a perfect centerpiece for any Disney lover! I had to use actual greenery to fill in the spaces. Luckily, I had a lot of plants that needed some trimming anyway!

Earth Day Castle Motif | Level 1

Happy Earth Day, everyone! We’re celebrating Earth Day this week with this Disney castle motif that is made with pressed flowers and twine. Disney is known for the amazing flower beds and horticulture found in the parks. Most notably: the Mickey face in front of Main Street Station right when you walk thru the gates into Disneyland. Let’s get inspired, pick some flowers from the garden and let’s get started!

Supplies List:Appx Cost:

**These items will be used for our flower pressing process. There are many ways you can press flowers, this is the way we did it because we had the necessary items to do so. If you would rather purchase faux flowers and skip pressing all together, go for it!


Instructions

Flower Pressing

Select your flowers and leaves! The ideal flowers for pressing are flat and not too “juicy”. You might find some plants to be too delicate so there is some trial and error involved.

I used nasturtium leaves, a paperwhite flower, lavender, lavender leaves, and a different type of purple flower I don’t know the name of.

Take out two Ceramic Tiles–I used extra bathroom floor tiles that are 6″x6″— fold your Felt pieces in half and place one on each tile.

Arrange your picks on one of the felt-topped tiles, making sure there’s no overlapping. You can do a test run first to see how your picks held up.

Place your other felt-topped tile on top to make a sandwich. The felt is there to absorb any water from the plants.

Microwave on high for 60 seconds.

Use a towel or something to protect your hands from the heat to gently lift off the top tile.

Let your picks set for a couple minutes. If they are still fleshy or wet to the touch, microwave in the press again for an additional 30 seconds. The plants should feel like parchment if they are pressed and dried enough.

Making the Castle

Print out a favorite picture or drawing of a Disney castle. Make sure you like the size! Cut it out and lay it on your Panel.

Trace the castle with a pencil or pen.

Take your Twine and Hot Glue it in the shape of your outline.

Tip: Use a toothpick to help getting corners a little sharper. You can squeeze the corner together as the glue is drying.

Arrange your Flowers

Place your flowers and leaves in an arrangement you like.

I used my round leaves and paperwhite flower to create a Mickey head in the center of my castle and the lavender leaves for the fireworks.

Use a soft brush to delicately apply Mod Podge to the backs of your leaves and flowers and glue it to your panel. It’s best to go one at a time and slowly to avoid breaking the plants. If they do break, no worries, just use the Mod Podge to glue it back in place.

Mod Podge over the top of your plants as well.

Finishing Touches

Add a little sparkle by Mod Podging whatever glitter you might have on top of your fireworks leaves. Avoid cleaning up your glitter in the sink please! Glitter should be on art, not in the ocean.

Use a black marker or pen to line the inside of your castle to make it pop off the panel.

Finally, add a twine border around your panel!

Done!

You made it! Awesome job! I wonder what types of flowers everyone used. I had never pressed my own flowers before so this was a fun learning experience. I wanted to do something more “natural” looking for Earth Day and I hope this hit the mark.

Thank you to everyone who made it all the way down here! Let us know if you did the project by tagging us on Instagram. Give us a follow for more pictures and projects and please share with your Disney-loving friends and family.

Mason Jar Lantern- Inspired by Mickey Mouse | Level 1

Hi, everybody! Welcome to Main Street DIY’s 5th project ever!! I have a fun and simple tea light lantern for you to make. This project is kid tested and approved so the whole family can join in! It’s also perfect if you have a couple jars laying around. Feel free to put your own spin on things. Make this craft your own!

Let’s go over supplies! You’ll be able to make a bunch of these lanterns with all of this.

Supplies List:Appx Cost:
Mason Jar$2 / jar
Tea Light or Fairy Lights$3
Black Acrylic Paint$1
Round Sponges in 2 sizes$3
Frosted Glass Spray Paint$8
Paper Clip or Pointy Object$0
Paint Brush$2
Twine/ Ribbon$3
*Approximate Cost of Supplies:$22
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies. Please note that this cost will cover multiple jars.


Instructions

Grab your Frosted Glass Spray Paint and Mason Jar. Follow the instructions on the can and cover your jar on the outside.

The can of paint I used will cover (single coat) 4 regular sized jars and 5 mini jars.

Let it dry completely!

Using a Big Round Sponge, dip into your Black Paint and dab a circle on your jar. Follow that up with two smaller rounds for the ears.

Tip: If you mess up–I know I did–simply wipe off the black paint with a wet paper towel before the black paint dries. If you let your frosted glass paint dry completely before you started, you won’t have a problem.

Alternative: cut out circles of paper and glue/tape them down instead of using paint if that is easier!

Use your Brush to smooth out any bubbles or edges. Or just to correct your circles. Your brush might pick up paint off of the jar. No worries! Dabbing your brush can help with that or add a second coat.

Let dry completely before adding a second coat if necessary.

Get a Paper Clip or anything with a fine point to dot on black paint to create some “pixie dust”. Draw little ‘x’s for some classic Disney visual effects. I dotted mine in a diagonal swirling shape that met in the back.

Almost done!

Wrap your twine or ribbon around the jar mouth and finish in a bow.

You can fill your jar a little with sea glass or sand if you wish. Adding charms or beads would look really cute, too!

Put in your tea light or fairy lights.

You made it!

Great job! I hope you had fun with this craft. It’s a great addition to your candle collection or centerpiece. This project is super flexible, too! You don’t have to use black paint, you can throw on some glitter, or use paint pens. Make it your own!

My mom works at an inclusive elementary school and brought in little jars for the kids to try out our project. They really enjoyed it! Here are a couple of photos from school.

Thanks for making this far! Let us know if you did this project by tagging us on Instagram! Be sure to check out our other projects and share with your Disney-loving-DIY friends!

“Make it Pink!” Bracelet – Inspired by Sleeping Beauty | Level 2

Hail to the Princess Aurora! She was raised by three good fairies, two of whom had very strong feelings for which color is the best. Pink or blue? With this project, you might have to make that decision for yourself…or maybe not?

Here are the supplies and tools you’ll need:

Supply List:Appx Cost:
Pink Opalescent Beads$3
Clear/Frosted Seed Beads$2
Owl Beads$2
Iridescent Clear Glass Beads 6mm$3
20 Gauge Silver Plated Wire$4
Tree charm$3
Lobster Clasp + optional Jump Ring $3
optional Castle Charm$5
*Approximate Cost of Supplies:$20 – $25
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies. Please note that you will have leftover materials.
Tool List:Appx Cost:
Round Nose Pliers
Flush Cutters or Nippers (wire cutter)
Chain Nose Pliers or Flat Nose Pliers
*Approximate Cost of Tools:$12 in a Set
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies.
These beads are pink, but when the light hits them just right….the color shifts to blue!

Instructions:

Cut a length of the 20 Gauge Wire that is 4-5 inches longer than the circumference of your wrist using your nippers. It’s better to cut more just in case! 14 inches is a good length to start at if you aren’t sure or don’t want to bother measuring your wrist. I gotchu.

Use your Round Nose Pliers and wrap the end of your wire around to make a loop. You should have about a 2 inch tail to wrap around the base of your loop to secure it in a coil. I didn’t make my tail long enough so it was a little difficult to wrap around. The tail should wrap 2-3 times. Squish the wrapped coil closer together using your Chain Nose Pliers and then smoosh it down around the main wire. Those are technical terms.

Flush Cut the end of the coil. If it’s still sharp, you can file it down.

String on your beads!

Start out with 1 Iridescent Clear Bead followed by 3 Seed Beads.

1 Pink Opalescent Bead and another seed bead.

String on an owl, iridescent bead, owl, iridescent bead.

The middle is made up of 3 pink opalescent beads.

‘The rest is the same in reverse starting with the iridescent bead.

The Charms

Take your chain nose pliers–I used flat nose in the picture–and bend the wire upward.

Use the round nose pliers to loop your wire around.

String on your charm(s). The loop doesn’t close completely so your charms may come out and travel on the wire up to where the clasp goes–unless you decide to add more beads to that portion.

Finishing Up

Wrap what you have around your wrist, shaping it into a circle. Take note of where you’ll need to attach your clasp.

Create a loop and coil like you did to start the bracelet. If you don’t have a jump ring, make sure your lobster clasp is inside the loop before you coil the tail around to secure it.

If you do have a jump ring, you can end your loop with the coil, flush cutting the edge so it isn’t sharp.

Open the jump ring by pulling each side in opposite directions. Insert your lobster clasp and attach it to the now closed loop. Close the jump ring.

If you have a different clasp that’s more accessible for you, by all means use that! Lobster clasps can be difficult to use. These magnetic clasps or toggle clasps could be a good alternative!

The fairies gave you a gift! You made it!

Fantastic job! You just made this Sleeping Beauty inspired bracelet. I hope you enjoyed jewelry making. I know I’m not the best at it, but I’m glad we got to try something new.

I chose to use a thick wire for this project so it holds its shape. It reminds me of the adjustable bracelets you can get at the Parks. In fact, that was my intention at first. I tried it out using memory wire, but didn’t end up liking it as much as the clasped one. Maybe you can try it out with the memory wire and see what you think? Or possibly elastic instead of wire. There are so many options!

Thanks to everyone who made it this far! If you have any tips for jewelry making, let me know. I would love to hear! If you made this please share with us on Instagram. Tag us and share with all your Disney loving DIYers!

Easter Basket-Inspired by Minnie Mouse | Level 1

Happy April! It’s Easter time and you’re in need of a cute DIY basket inspired by the one-and-only Minnie Mouse. I chose to represent her blue polka dot outfit for those Springtime feels. This project can be done by kids who are able to operate a hot glue gun. I recommend ages 8+ with adult supervision.

Here are the supplies you’ll need. I found my basket at Michael’s. It’s a wooden basket that has flat vertical slats. Go for a basket that is flat sided and has a handle that can more-or-less stand up on its own.

Supply List:Appx Cost:
White Wooden Basket with Handle$6.30
9×12″ Foam Sheet$0.80
Assorted Yellow and White Paper Flowers$5
Red Acrylic Paint– matte$1
Yellow Acrylic Paint-matte$1
White Acrylic Paint– matte$1
Turquoise Blue Acrylic Paint– matte$1
Black Acrylic Paint– matte$1
Rhinestone Brads or any little round accent$3
A Larger Round Mug/Cup$0
A Glass or Cup$0
Scrap Construction Paper/Paper$0
*Approximate Cost of Supplies$20.10+tax
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies
Tool List:Appx Cost:
Hot Glue Gun + Glue$10
Paint Brush$0.80
Pencil$0
Tape$1
*Approximate Cost of Supplies$12.30+tax
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies

Instructions:

If your basket is as big as mine, you’re going to need a big mug to get the right proportion for the ears. If you have a small basket, make sure you choose a cup that is appropriate for the size.

Tip: You can try out different sizes by cutting out various sized circles from scrap paper and holding it up on your handle.

Trace around your cup on the edge of the Foam Piece. Measure the size of your handle–my handle was flat, so I measured the width of it and doubled that number.

Then, mark the distance on top of where you drew your first circle. We’ll call that your Handle Distance. The mug in the picture shows my measurement. Feel free to scroll down to check what they look like when they’re cut out.

Do the same thing right next to your first circle. To avoid readjusting your foam, make sure you’ve lined up the circles and the hat. More on that next.

Next to your second circle, draw a little hat. The way you do that is to draw a rectangle that would suit the size of your basket–a little wider than your circles and about the same height–then draw a shallow curve on the outer long side. The curve should be on the outside, closest to the edge of the foam piece. Mark the same handle distance as the circles.

Tip: I curved the sides of my rectangle to make it more cartoony.

Fold the foam piece over in the center of your handle distance. Cut out your shapes keeping the actual fold in tact.

Tip: I used tape to hold down the edge as I cut.

Unfold your shapes and paint your ears black on both sides.

Paint the hat red and the handle distance black on both sides.

Make a template!

Using a piece of scrap paper and a cup that’s smaller than your ear circles, make a polka dot pattern template.

Cut out your circles and tape or secure it onto your basket.

Use a pencil to draw your circles, moving the template over as needed to finish around your basket.

Let’s Paint!

Painting the sides was a bit tricky and time consuming. If you’re in a rush, I’d say you could glue on circles of paper or foam instead of painting them.

Start painting the blue background. Be careful not to paint inside the circles you drew.

Paint your circles white. Follow that up with painting the handle black, the top rim–inside and out–baby pink. You can make pink by mixing your red and white paint. If you did a good job painting the blue, you might not have to paint your circles white.

Finally, paint the bottom rim yellow. It doesn’t have to be perfect. We’re covering most of it with flowers.

The Final Touches

Dot some hot glue onto the handle distance portion of the ear. Make sure you’re even so the front and back of the ear lines up. If you’re good-to-go, glue the front and back of the ear together. Do this for both ears.

In the same fashion, hot glue the hat, placing it in front of the left ear. Glue the hat to the front of the ear. Top off your hat with a white paper flower with a rhinestone brad in the center. Or just use a sequin, rhinestone, or button. Just a little accent.

Add the paper flowers to the bottom rim with hot glue.

Create a hidden Mickey with the flowers. Glue to the top right of your rim on the front of the basket. I used the rhinestone brads here, but feel free to use whatever accent like I mentioned before.

Et VoilĂ ! You Made It!

Congrats! I hope you liked this project.

May this bring a little magic to your homes as Easter approaches. This isn’t the easiest Level 1 project, again I’d say it’s good for ages 8+ with supervision. I’m glad I got to share it with you. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

Thanks to everyone who made it til the end! Let us know if you made this Minnie-inspired Easter basket by tagging us on Instagram!! If you can’t make it right now, there’s always next year. Or hey, just for fun when you can!

Spring Wreath-Inspired by Daisy Duck | Level 2

It’s the first day of Spring 2020 and it’s the first project we’ll be doing here on Main Street DIY! I’m so excited! I hope that this project is something you can enjoy even if you can’t go out to the craft store to pick up supplies right now. I hope that this is something you can look forward to making.

Without further ado…this is the Daisy Duck inspired Spring Wreath and the supplies you’ll need!

Supplies List:Appx Cost:
12″ Floral Ring$3
6ft Garland with Purple Flowers$10
9 Large White Daisies$5
Long Stem with Leaves$4
4 Yellow Cattail-Like Flowers$1
3 Small Yellow Daisies$2
White Feathers$3
1.5″ Pink Wired Ribbon$2
*Total Appx Cost:$30 + tax
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies
Tools List:Appx Cost:
Clear Hot Glue + Hot Glue Gun$10
Wire Cutters$4
*Total Approximate Cost of Tools:$14 + tax
*Cost is approximated with coupons/sales and if you don’t already have all the supplies

(Please note that the supply links may not last forever since flowers tend to be seasonal items at craft stores. I will update as needed.)


Instructions:

Place the Garland with the purple flowers on the Ring, following its shape. The first wrap should be placed towards the opening in the ring, the second should go outside of the first–and so on if your garland is super long. Make sure you like the placement before hot gluing down.

Tip: I put one of the plastic ends of the garland thru a hole in the ring and glued it down in the back before wrapping and gluing.

Use the wire cutters to separate the branches from the Long Stem with Leaves. You should have enough to fill in most of the gaps left by the garland. Concentrate most of these leaves where your garland didn’t overlap twice. We’re going to have this be the top of the wreath. Glue ’em in place!

Tip: I placed the leaves pointing up. Those on the right side of the ring curve counter-clockwise and those on the left curve clockwise.

Create a hidden mickey with the three Small Yellow Daisies in the lower right corner of your ring. Mine had wires in the back so I wrapped them around the ring.

Next, use the wire cutters to separate each Large White Daisy from the bunch. Keep the stems if you want to fill in more space or finish the edge of the ring. Arrange the daisies around the ring on the outside. These flowers typically have wire in the stem so you can manipulate how they’re angled and curved.

Tip: Hot glue ended up melting the outer coating of the stems, separating them from the inner core. Make sure you hold the stems down to the ring until they’re set.

Nearing the end! Go ahead and stick some Feathers around the bottom half of your wreath. A dab of hot glue on the bottom of the feather should do the trick. Add the Yellow Cattail-Like Flowers on the left inner-circle.

Tip: I added the two leaves that came with the white daises to fill in more space.

Finish it off with a bow made from 1.5 inch Pink Wired Ribbon. Cut two 15 inch lengths of ribbon. Remember to fray check the ribbon ends. Fold the ends to the center and sew or glue one side so that there’s a little peak and the loops make a shallow ‘V’ shape. Do this for both pieces of ribbon.

Tip: To get center, I folded my ribbon in half to make a crease then folded each end to that crease.

Layer one piece on top of the other with the peak on the outside, scrunch the centers, and sew or glue together.

To finish the bow, cut a small length of ribbon–about 3-4 inches–and wrap that around the center over the sewed pieces, sewing or gluing the ends in the back. Leave space to feed thru an additional length–30-32 inches–of ribbon for the tails. You can cut little triangles in the ends of the tails for a cuter look.

To attach the bow to your wreath. Either thread craft wire thru the part where the tails fed thru and wrap around the ring or hot glue in place.

YOU MADE IT! Congrats!

Took a couple hours didn’t it. Phew!

I would like to thank every one of you who made it this far. I know I don’t read everything on blogs, so if you did I’m so proud of you! Let us know if you made this Daisy Duck inspired wreath by tagging us on Instagram @mainstreetdiy!
