Using Flowers to make a Wreath

A few months ago I was given a project to do and I needed to use as much of the items left from the last class I gave. Well, I did it. I made a wreath and a tree out of white flowers from the last project. Below you will find exactly how to do it. It does not take much to make these beautiful wreaths and/or tree. On the tree I added green flowers also to add to the beauty. Take your time and look at each photo, try it. It is really fun!

Items needed.
I taught a class on how to make these. Above the wreath is being put together.
Cutting the flowers. Cut them in half then take off the petals.
Start stacking the petals, one on the other. Just build on each row.

When the wreath is all together, use crystal Stickles to add shimmer and beauty. Paint it on with a paint brush.

This is a simple and beautiful project. It can be accomplished within 2 hours and look like you spent much longer on it. Give it a try. Happy scrappin'.
