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.)

D.I.Y. Striped Wreath2. Onto each of the Agenda divider pages, measure and cut 1-inch strips. The amount of strips you will need will depend on how large your wreath shape is. (For a 10-inch-wide wreath we used around 50-60 strips.)

    Please put the agenda back on your store Vera Bradley…. Because I really want to do some of these projects and I can’t because I never got one last year but I still do want one for this year too… Please do put it back in the store, and love the idea!
