Christmas Rose Holiday Wreath

I had a lovely evening up in the workshop tonight…  I finished off a project for work.. I blethered for a bit to Deb on Skype and then I made this project for Wild Orchid Crafts, the video will be up on Youtube tomorrow evening for it 🙂

I had bought a sytrofoam/polystyrene ring at the weekend with a project like this in mind and I do love how it turned out.. the flowers remind me of winter roses 🙂

The supplies list is at the bottom of this post.

Sooo… first of all I wrapped the ring in florists tape…

and then I took some flower petals and dabbed each one in the centre with Forrest Moss Distress Stain and gave it a blast with the heat gun…

Then they were hot glued onto the polystyrene ring…

I added a few prancing reindeers, green tone roses and some leaves to fill out the ring

then added some lovely red seam binding and a little christmas charm to finish it off…..

Supplies List :-

  • Polystyrene / Styrofoam ring
  • Florists Green Tape
  • CX-00005 100 Gold Holograhic Padded Reindeer
  • LL-00019 50 Green Mulberry Paper Ivy Leaves (the leaves I used are not available at the moment but the ones I have listed would be perfect!)
