Today I am so excited to be a guest designer over at You Had Me At Craft!
EEEEK! I am freaking out over here, it is such an honor to be chosen!
At first when I was picked I was so excited but then I realized that I had to make something fantastic so I got a little worried! Now that I am done, I am just excited to share what I made!
I recently got the card Flower Shoppe and I love it but I had yet to open it up so I thought I would use it for my guest designer day!
For my project I had been looking everywhere for the green foam circle wreath that they sell in all the craft stores but I couldnt find any. I was discussing it with my friend Brittany and she came up with the idea to use packing paper!
This is the "wreath" that I made with packing paper and packing tape.
I then wrapped it in green tulle and Voila! I had a wreath. Then I cut about a million (this is an approximate number) flowers out from Flower Shoppe and hot glued them to the wreath. At this point I am not sure if the wreath got more glue or my hands. I got glue everywhere!
This is the end product!
This is my wreath hanging on the wall.
Because I used different sized flowers, the circle doesnt look circular but it is.
