Ribbon, buttons, gems, mini baubles (Poundland), feathers.
Each wreath is made in the same way, just changing the colours around.
Start by peeling off the backing paper of the chipboard shapes to reveal the glue layer, and then rub on Stix2 foils. Apply rub on swirls then attach to the wreath with craft wire.
Draw, cut out, and then paint a chipboard frame. When dry, apply a layer of multi medium and apply sugar coating. Allow to dry then add patterned paper, word strips, lace etc….whatever takes your fancy! Apply sugar coating to the chipboard letters in the same way and apply to the corner of the frame. Add flat back pearls when dry. Add a mini bauble to the bottom right of the frame and secure with a brad.
Draw around the holly leaves onto patterned paper then cut out.
Working around the bottom/right of the wreath, apply feathers, holly leaves, a flower then the frame.
Add a Prima swirl to the top of the wreath, replacing some gems with co-ordinating pearls. Finish by adding a ribbon, button and hanging wire. Enjoy!
