A Mini Chrimstmas Wreath


Using the thicker parts of the broom, I cut them into various lengths to fit onto the cardboard hoop I had cut out using Spellbinders nesties.  I also cut a piece of hessian.  I glued all 3 layers together and started to arrange the twigs, sticking them down with the hot glue gun.


I took some of the beaded centres out of some flowers, coloured them red with a sharpie pen, glued them on along with the bows with glossy accents and finally added a ribbon loop so I could hang it.

I had great fun making this with pieces of twigs flying everywhere whilst I was cutting them up.

Arty Inklings have a theme of a Crimble Challenge.

Country View Crafts have a theme of Bah Humbug.

Anything but a Card have a theme of Anything goes....with a holiday twist.

Brilliant Sam and so inspiring. I thought I would make one and maybe add a few cinnamon sticks that look like twigs then it would be fragrant as well as beautiful

Thanks for the idea

Love Chrissie x
