D.I.Y. Striped Wreath

What you’ll need: Dividers from a Vera Bradley Agenda, tape, a ruler (not pictured), scissors and cardboard cut into a donut shape. (The overall width of the wreath can vary, but should not be wider than 3 inches, from the edge of the inner hole to the outer edge of the wreath.)
