Apple Wreath (Astrobrights Back To School Crafts)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I made this apple wreath for back to school. 

First, I cut a round shape from cardboard. 

Then I used my Silhouette to cut some red Astrobrights paper into apple shapes. 

I painted the stems brown and the leaves green and glued the apples to the cardboard. 

I hung it up with some grosgrain ribbon.  I love how it looks against the chalkboard!   I am so excited about back to school this year!

Have you used Astrobrights colored papers? They come in 23 bright colors so your bright ideas always get attention! Astrobrights papers are perfect for projects at home, school, or the office! If you want to stand out from the crown and get noticed, use Astrobrights papers.

Astrobrights paper is different from other paper.  The colors are truly vivid. I am a crafter and use paper all the time ( for invitations, cards, decoupage, and all sorts of crafts).  I love color and when I use color, I want the colors to be bright, not washed out, faded, and dull.

Astrobrights is a unique company: it gives back to local elementary schools!
