How adorable is this wreath made by Aunty Sue ?
I thought I would show it to you again in case you missed it on the earlier post! And here are instructions on how to make one! I hope to make some as Christmas gifts this year!

Ingredients to make a Christmas Wreath
Christmas Seasons Stamp, Promarkers, Modpodge sparkle, Wide Christmas Ribbon, Chipboard Wreath, String, Co ordinations Card in 2 colours, Glitter Card, Pearls, Spellbinder Layered Poinsettia Die, Marianne Designs Creatables CR1253 &LR024 fern punch
First I coloured my image with my promarkers then gave alight coat of Modge Podge to seal and protect
Take chipboard wreath and wrap string around to give a base. Making a Loop at the top to hang
Die cut the 3 Large Flowers & 2 Flowers assemble and glue together with a pearl centre
Cut plenty of the foliage and glitter punched fern
Layer the foliage and glue down I used pva glue
Tie a double bow and glue with a hot glue gun
Arrange your flowers and add the glitter fern among them
Cut your image out just slightly smaller than the original size of the wreath making sure that your image is centred so it shows in the opening
When the arrangement is set turn over and add plenty of glue to the backside
Place your image down and glue in place. You can add another circle behind the image the size of the wreath to protect and give the centre strength. Wait for the glue to dry and then display your finished project.
