OKC Thunder Wreath

As many of you know, the OKC Thunder are playing in the NBA playoffs and David and I are huge Thunder fans!!  They won the first game and play the 2nd tomorrow night, I believe!!  I even chose my Julep Maven box one month because the polishes were blue and orange.  And here is one of my first ever blog posts of us in our Thunder gear.  If we could go to every game, we would.  I decided instead of buying a Thunder wreath and spending about twice the amount, I would just make one!  It was sooo easy - thanks to this website.  I love all of her videos!  I don't think I will ever buy a wreath again. 

I made this fun little collage in my new favorite iPhone app called Photo Collage.  It was free until I fell in love with this heart one and then I was suckered into paying $1.99 so I could get it.  So not fair!

I got all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby.  I used:
1 Large Wreath Form 
 (our front door is huge - otherwise I would've done a smaller one and had more left over)
Pipe Cleaners
Deco Mesh in Blue and Orange
Bridal Wired Ribbon in White - you can also use tulle
Wired Orange Ribbon
Zebra Ribbon
(I couldn't fnd it in wired - I would highly suggest using wired if at all possible)
Styrofoam Basketballs
I added some Black Stickles to the black lines just to dress them up.  Hobby Lobby had some basketball appliques that I really liked but they weren't on sale.  I will probably go back and get them when they put them on sale because I'm not totally in love with these styrofoam ones - but they will work for now.

I won't walk you through all of the steps because you can go watch this girl's awesome video tutorials and see how I did it. 

It took about 2 hours to make.  It's not completely done because I want to add "OKC" in the middle with wooden letters.  I'm going to paint them blue and add blue glitter so that should be a mess fun.

My plan for Christmas is to do a Thunder Christmas tree in our extra bedroom.  I started making the decorations for it last year.  See my Thunder ornaments here.

Once I add the letters and maybe some more zebra ribbon, I'll post the finished product.  Go THUNDER!!
