A Christmas Wreath

I bought a wreath covered with artificial leaves & berries (awful looking really), but they were attached to a very nice vine wreath.  So, I removed these leaves and berries until  I was down to the bare wreath.  Then I built it up, using leaves I die cut and coloured, and poinsettia flowers I made using the new Festive Build a Flower punch.

  • I used a hot glue gun to attach everything to the base wreath, and I also used the hot glue gun to build the poinsettia.  I tried using dimensionals, but they did not stick
  • Before building the flower, all the edges were sponged with Soft Suede and the petals folded in half to make a crease in the middle of the flower.
  • To finish the wreath, I made a double bow with the 3/8" white glitter ribbon and attached it to the top.
