MY GREAT BIG WREATH


I played around on Pinterest a bit the other day and saw THIS really great little wreath. I figured that if I layered enough SB leaf die cuts in various directions around some wire twisted in a circle that I could achieve something like it. I ended up making some little leaf flowers to get more dimension (done like building a rose. The wood veneer heart is from Hobby Lobby (the package is cheap, cheap and has a ton of hearts and arrows - I am going to get a few more packages) as is all the paper I used. The berries are off an old decorative sprig I had twisted around some candles but got tired of a few years ago. I love how this came out - it will be going to my Mother for her upcoming 78th Birthday.

Hugz!
