New Wreath

Stampin' Up!, Home Decor, DIYI wasn’t really happy with the wreath I made a few weeks ago.  I think it was because the flowers were more than one color each.  It was just too…much, I think.  So when my June Paper Pumpkin kit arrived with those cute pinwheels, I decided to make red, white, and blue flowers for the wreath and add a pinwheel.

I love the way this one turned out.  Besides keeping the flowers one color (or a color and white, for a few of the flowers), I made them a bit smaller by not using either of the two larger floral frames framelits.  I like the little flowers much better.  I think they look like carnations.

I’m looking forward to seeing the other wreaths from class Saturday.  Most everyone got their flowers put together, but needed to “fluff” them up and pin them to the wreath.  The combinations were beautiful – and I know the finished projects will be lovely.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!

    Yeah – I hung around for a little while after everyone left so I could finish. Didn’t take too long! Once you get the flowers made (and fluffed up), it goes fast.

    They’re so easy, Christine! I used pins to add the flowers to the styrofoam wreath base (instead of hot glue). That way I could move flowers around or change them entirely.
