Today, my ESL kids made these wreaths for Memorial Day. I got the idea for the wreath from Enchanted Learning and I found the poem at Apples4TheTeacher.com. I used the Attach to Shape feature in MyMemories Suite 4 to make the poem star shaped. It’s really easy to do, you just add a text box with your text, add a shape, select them both, right click and select Attach to Shape from the context menu.
The wreath is very simple to make, especially if you have an electronic cutter. I used my eCraft. The shapes are basic shapes that most machines come with.
Obviously, you could make this just about any size, but I started with a 7” circle with a 5.5” cut-out for the base. I sized the stars to 2.5”, 2” and 1.5” and cut them from red, blue and white card stock. I randomly glued the stars around the circle and then when I was done, I added the poem to the front and a hanger to the back.
