Fall Wreath!

Happy Wednesday!!!!!!  Was I suspenseful enough yesterday?   Do any of you follow Tip Junkie?  I get a ton of blog posts from them and when the 51 How To Make A Wreath post came in, I was inspired!

My mom took a ride to me to Michael's to buy the necessary stuff (well, actually enough for THREE wreaths) and on Monday - I created this:

What do you think??   I used some magenta ribbon and wrapped it around the Styrofoam wreath.  I used pins periodically in the back to hold the ribbon in place.   Then I got my glue gun out and cut down the silk flowers I bought and started gluing them in place.

I created the bow on the top and added a pearl/gold button for some "elegance".  Then I tied a simple knot so the ribbon laid the way I wanted it to in order to hang the wreath!

Here's a close up:

I'm 1/2 way done with my second wreath - but had no time to work on it on Tuesday - so maybe by Thursday morning I'll be able to post it!!

Have a great day!!!!!


Thanks for your visit!

Maria this is so pretty, and the colors and flowers could be changed out for all the different seasons so easily. I don't arrange flowers at all, they usually look horrible but you did a fantastic job, just another creative thing from you!

Maria, this wreath is just GORGEOUS! I love the flowers that you chose and the elegant bow at the top! You need to branch out from cards more often if this is the result!! :)

Wow, this is absolutely stunning! I love it. I rarely work with flowers because I am never happy with the way they look, but your arrangement is just so pretty. Can't wait to see what else you make.
