Halloween is not the only thing special about October, it is also Breast Cancer Awareness month. Ladies, are you going to your regular annual exams? Doing those checks regularly? I can’t stress the importance of early detection enough. To raise awareness I’ve decorated a Breast Cancer Awareness Wreath.
Please note this is a sponsored post by Treetopia. I am their brand ambassador, but all opinions are my own.
This is my second time decorating a Breast Cancer Awareness wreath for Treetopia. It is such an important topic it deserves two wreaths! Please check out the Susan G. Komen foundation for more information and also donation opportunities.
- Large sticker letters
- 5 varieties of pink fabric
- 5 small embroidery hoops
- 7 hot pink pompoms
- 2 small faux pumpkins
- Skin toned paint
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
- 1 Hot Pink Treetopia Wreath
Using a mix of pink fabrics stretch them inside 5 embroidery hoops. I found a bandana with the iconic breast cancer awareness pink ribbon. If you can’t find pink hoops you can always paint wood ones.
Once the fabric is stretched inside the embroidery hoops trim off any excess. Add large stickers to say ‘FIGHT’ or any other meaningful pink power slogan.
Add a pompom to cover the hardware of the embroidery hoop. Using hot glue attach the word to the wreath.
Pumpkins are optional 😉
Be sure to check out A Kailo Chic Life tomorrow where my friend and co-brand ambassador for Treetopia Kara Whitten shares her wreath. More wreaths mean more exposure and more awareness because there can never be too much of that.
Hoping this wreath reminds you to schedule your exam if you are over 40, remind a friend, call you mom! We are strong and will continue to fight and raise breast cancer awareness one hot pink wreath at a time.
