Flower Wreath for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps


For todays make I used some of the gorgeous pre-coloured flowers on the Magic Garden CD from Polkadoodles.

 I started off with one of the wreaths that I made from birch twigs 18 months ago


I printed off lots of flowers from the CD and cut them out with my Craft Robo. I shaped each one with a ball tool and poked holes in the centres before layering them up two at a time with mini black brads.



It was a bit awkward trying to arrange the flowers on the wreath as they kept falling off, so I cut a rough outline of the wreath out of black paper


Once I was happy with the layout I started glueing them all on with a hot glue gun.


 Once that was done I wanted something to hang in the middle, so I picked one of the fab chalkboard sentiments on the CD.

I printed it off twice and cut them out (it's a nice easy shape to cut). I attached some fine thread in between the two layers which was then tied around the top of the wreath.


It's finished off with a loop of pink satin ribbon to hang it up with and a couple of pieces knotted around the wreath itself.


I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
