Sophie's Wreath

Sophie Zadeh from Stampin' Up! showed us a beautiful wreath at Brisbane's Heartfelt Event.

I loved the mix of Cherry Cobbler with Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.  Very earthy.  So I set out to make my own.

I managed to find a wreath form at Riot which didn't need covering as the natural branches looked perfect behind the flowers.

I then made a variety of flowers, 'in front of the tele' as Sophie suggested, combining different sizes and shapes run through the Big Shot.  Then to give myself an idea of arrangement of sizes and colours, I sat them on the wreath before using any glue.

I had about five of the biggest size flowers so I placed them first and then arranged the medium flowers around, avoiding similar flowers side by side.  I saved some little flowers for the end, to fill in spaces once the flowers were glued.

Once all the flowers were glued on, using a hot glue gun, I finished each one off with one of our wooden buttons.  (A bit of glue oozing through the holes here and there!)

All up, it was quite a quick project.  We'll hang it on the front door come December.
