Hello and thanks for joining me once again on the blog this week :-)
Just a quick post to show you my first ever wreath.
I have always been intimidated by wreaths. The idea of having to decorate it yourself like a flower arrangement, is just a no-go for me. I'm terrible at arranging flowers and the like.
But then I discovered the Folded Star Sprigs 3D Wreath from the JGW Colonial Christmas kit and I jumped to the challenge.
I used AC Cardstock in Spinach for the ring and the outside sprigs and Spinach, Leaf and Moss for the filler sprigs. I made more than shown in the tutorial to make the wreath look a bit fuller.
I didn't make the stars like Jodi did, because they are very similar to some folded stars that are traditional here in Denmark and that I have tons of since my mom and Mother-in-Law folded or actually braided lots for me (I just can't seem to get the hang of it ) The only difference between my stars and Jodis is that mine are double sided as to Jodis being one-sided (and proberbly a lot easier to glue down) I used hot glue to glue down the stars and the small silver baubles.
All in all this wreath was very easy to assemble. The only difficulty I had, was gluing the ring together but it doesn't have to be perfect since it's going to be covered with sprigs anyways.
Thanks for joining me today - stay tuned for more Christmas projects soon.
