If you didn't know this by now, then I think after this post you will for sure know that my boys LOVE hot wheels cars! When I thought of the idea for this wreath, I was really excited to see their reaction to the finished product. Just like I thought that they would: they jumped, laughed and yelled "COOOOL!!!!!". These reactions are always so rewarding, keep the ideas flowing, and my heart so full! I love making my little men happy! ❤️
MESSY LEVEL: 1
This project isn't very messy, there is some gluing with the hot glue gun and string cutting.
- Wreath of your choice
- Hot wheels cars
- Racing words printed on cardstock + cut out (optional). Download for racing words available HERE.
- Paper straws in color / pattern of choice.
1.) The first thing you're going to need is a wreath of your choice.
2.) Then round up all the Hot Wheels cars that you want to use.
3.) It was helpful for us to stage them on the wreath where we were going to want them to go. (This step is optional)
4.) Then you start to cut your string into 5 inch pieces, cut as many pieces as there are cars. You'll be using these pieces to tie your racers all around your wreath! Wrapping the string around the cars twice, then tying held them on more securely.
5.) If you decide to use the racing words, you can print the download out on cardstock. Cut each letter out and glue each word to a paper straw. You can then cut the remnant of each straw off. This made it easier for me to attach the words to the wreath. Then you can glue your words with a hot glue gun all around your wreath.
