Yellow Chevron Initial Door “Wreath” {a little update}

Well you know me, it’s tough to keep things the same. I love a little (or a big) change every now and again.

So, although I am still loving the yellow chevron initial “wreath” on the front door, I decided it was time for a little tweak.

Here’s how I did it:

01 yellow chevron initial wreath update measure

Measure the diameter of a bowl (that’s from one side to the other for all my non-mathy friends out there).

Then mark half that distance from the corner up the side and towards the middle of your “wreath.” That way, you will get a perfect quarter-round curve cut-out in each corner. [I started with a cereal bowl, but decided on a bigger soup bowl.]

Next, line up the edge of your bowl with the marks and score a cut line (I’m using foam core, so scoring is better than just marking then cutting, but you can mark then cut, too).

Then, cut out the curved corners.

05 yellow chevron initial wreath update washi tape

I decided I probably should have used the cereal bowl after all… But rather than trim the flat edges to make the curves not so big, I added black polka dotted washi tape to each of the straight sides instead. Everything is better with polka dots, right?!

[Here’s what it looks like from the back with the washi tape wrap around, the duct tape-secured ribbon, and the command strip at the bottom to secure.]
