Monthly Make – Craftwork Cards Wreath

 

Well the festive ribbon and toppers are safely tucked away for another year and it’s time for January’s monthly make!

This month I’m making a flower wreath from a Craftwork Cards kit that is currently a members offer on the Create and Craft website at the mo, so if you’re a C&C member get your paws on this before it disappears!

In the kit you get enough to make 3 wreaths. Included in the pack you get ribbon, 3 chipboard rings with precut holes and loads of die cut flowers! (Which may come in handy for other projects if you have left overs!)

First of all, pop out a chipboard ring and cut 6 pieces of ribbon, 5 inches in length.

Thread these pieces of ribbon through the pre-punched holes and tie a knot.

You will notice there are 2 holes closer together. This is the top of your wreath. I used different ribbon to tie in these holes to create a hanger loop, but you can use the ribbon that’s provided if you wish. Make sure you have enough loop so you can hang it on a nail or something around the home when it’s complete.

Next pop out your die cut flowers and get creative! I used an embossing tool to make the petals stand up a little so it was more 3D. Go crazy! Mix and match colours and make some wild flowers!

Next you’ll need to stick your flowers on your wreath. 7 flowers should be a perfect fit but there’s no limit! Obviously the less chipboard showing the better.

And there you have it! A gorgeous shabby chic wreath to hang around the home. I made one of these for my mum for her birthday and she has it hanging on a notice board in her kitchen which looks great! They’d also be great valentines/Mother’s Day gifts.
