Let’s get started!
The first step is to choose which flowers and foliage from the Christmas Blooming ‘ansome collections you would like to use for your wreath. To make each of my ‘bunches’, I’ve chosen 1 sprig of Holly, 3 Fir Branches and a Poinsettia along with a connector and a brad. I decorated my Holly Berries with 4mm flat backed pearls and set aside to dry.
Using the Double Stitched Nesting Circle Dies, I created a hanger for my wreath. I used 2 circle dies and a tag creator, I cut 3 layers of card to make it sturdy then I threaded it with ribbon. I cut the wreath bow twice, I added some shape and glued the two bows together in the middle.
Once the glue was dry on my Holly Berries, I assembled 10 ‘bunches’. I added some shape to all of my pieces then threaded the Poinsettia onto my brad followed by the Holly, the Fir and lastly the connector. I glued the 2 layers of the brad covers together, domed them slightly and adhered them into place to form the middle of my Poinsettia.
To assemble the wreath, flip over all of your bunches and link them together using the connectors.
Place a glue dot onto the back of each brad.
Place your wreath hanger over your glue dots and press to secure it.
Now you can flip over your completed wreath and attach your bow.
The Christmas Release of Claina Palmer Designs Blooming ‘ansome Dies contains a variety of festive flowers and foliage along with wreath embellishments to choose from so you can create an array of wreaths and garlands.
