College Pride!



In less than four weeks, the biggest event of the year will take place - the first kickoff of college football!  My beloved ASU Sun Devils will take the field and we will be rooting them on.  To get our home into the spirit, I created a few decorative accents.

College Felt Wreath

Materials:
Floral Wreath Form
6 12"x9" Sheets of each color felt (18 sheets total)
Tacky Glue
Wood Skewer
Embellishments
Hot Glue

For detailed instructions making the felt wreath, please click here.
** Change: For this wreath I used 3"x3" cuts of felt


To Make College Logo:
1. Measure the clearance in the middle of your wreath after felt has been put in.  Mine was 5.5 inches.
2. Print logo out on cardstock - use Word/Publisher to ensure it's the proper size.
3. Cut out logo and trace onto foam poster board.
4. Carefully use X-Acto knife to cut out logo.  I did a clean cut through the top layer of the foam board and then used more of a sawing motion to cut through the second layer.  This kept the board from pinching and collapsing.
5.  Paint your college colors!

College Pride Display

Materials:
3 12"x9" Sheets of each color felt (9 sheets total)
2 3" Floral Sphere Forms
Tacky Glue
Wood Skewer
Cardboard Letters
Paint

To Make Poms:
Use the same technique to make felt wreath, but alternate direction of layers around floral spheres (see below).  Use 1"x4.5" cuts of felt.

** Tip: I bought my felt at Hobby Lobby.  They sell sheets of felt 4 for $1.

Are you ready for some football?!
We sure are!

GO DEVILS!
