I hosted an OREO Cookie Ball decorating party the other day, and wanted to have something to decorate my front door, to help set the mood before my guests got in the front door, so I made this simple “wreath” inspired by the classic OREO cookie.
12″ Cardboard Cake Circles (2) | 10″ Styrofoam Round | Wooden letters spelling YUM | White Glue
Red acrylic paint | Brown acrylic paint | Red glitter | 25′ Decorative ribbon | Short sewing pins (1″)
Paint the non-white side of the cake circles brown, and paint the letters red.
After paint dries, apply a thin layer of white glue to letters to adhere glitter.
Once the brown circles have dried, use a black marker to add the textured design to the front of the cookie:
It's just meant to be a suggestion of a cookie; no need to get out the compass or the protractor. 🙂
You only need to do the design on one of the circles… using the white glue, attach the styrofoam round to the front of the blank brown circle, then put the cookie design one on top of that. LOTS of glue.
This will give you your sandwich look for the wreath.
Next, cut the ribbon into 6″ strips. Length isn't super important, again, no need to get out the ruler!
Once the glue has dried, pin the ribbon in loops to the back of the wreath. Make sure your pins go into the styrofoam and not just through the cardboard.
Glue the letters onto the front, and add a bow as a finishing touch.
A quick and simple door decoration that's sure to welcome your cookie loving guests.
