To make the wreath firstly I bought a polystyrene ring, this one was 12"
Then I cut out loads of scalloped circles in various co ordinating colours and made into flowers. Here is a tutorial showing you how to do this...
These flowers are so easy to make and the best thing is that you can cut the circles on your cameo and so it takes minutes to have 5 or 6 made!!
I then decide which leaves I want to use because sometimes the colours used in the flowers change the way you want to lay out your wreath....so my leaves always come last to cut but first to go down...
Then comes the fun time...I tend to use my glue gun to stick the leaves and flowers to the polystyrene as that way they are nice and secure and will withstand the tugging and playing with that they are subjected to by my family!!
The reindeer in this one was some cuts I had left from christmas cards I made!!
The Father chrismas and Mother Christmas were my husbands find...he went to a tabletop sasle and a lady there had a carrier bag of craaft bits that she sold to him for £2 and right at the bottom there they were. The minute I saw them I knew they were destined for this years wreath!!
Thank you for looking
Love debby xx
