Christmas Wreath

Good Morning Crafters
 
How are you doing with your Christmas preparations, I can't believe there is only 5 weeks to Christmas!
 
Today Gill has created a beautiful wreath for the home.
 
Check out our Christmas shop over on the Personal Impressions website, we have a stockist locator on our home page to find a stockist near you! 
 
Products used:
Kaiser Craft Holly Jolly Christmas 12 x 12 papers.
A die cut large circle from scrap card
 
Step 1
 
Cut 2cm strips from 2 sheets of the Holly Jolly Christmas papers and staple / stick the ends together
 

 
Step 2
 
Staple the folded strips evenly around the die cut circle. Repeat this again with smaller strips in another pattern to make three layers.

 
Step 3
 
I found once the first layer was stapled on it became too bulky to use staples for the next two layers so I used PVA glue and put a weight on the until dry 

 
Step 4
 
Once dry I made a little rosette from the long strips that were left over and added a little round sentiment from the Holly Jolly Collectibles. I then added ribbon at the back to hang it.
 
 
All hanging and awaiting Christmas
 
 
This would be great to do with the children! I am sure they would love one in their bedrooms.
 
Thank you for visiting Today!
