This month the MFT Design Team was challenged to create wreaths. Wreaths have been so popular lately, I've seen them popping up everywhere on crafting sites. I was really excited to make one for myself.
I decided to create my own wreath using some thick cardboard I had in the house. I traced around a couple of plates to create the circles. I then used an hobby knife to cut the cardboard. The circles looked pretty rough when I finished, but I knew I would be covering them with ribbon so I didn't worry about it.
I used some Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon from SU to cover the wreath. I wound the ribbon fairly tightly and I secured it at both ends with a glue gun. Once that was done, the fun began!
I used two colors of MFT felt, Bubblegum and English Rose to create the roses. For the three largest roses I used the Large Rolled Rose Die-namics die. I cut each rose out in the Bubblegum and the English Rose felt. I layed one cut out on top of the other and I rolled the flower like usual. I really love the effect of the two colors of felt together. I glued all the flowers to the wreath using a glue gun.
For the other roses I just used one color of felt. I used the Rolled Rose Die-namics die and the Mini Rolled Rose Die-namics die.
I used the new Royal Leaves Die-namics die to create the leaves. This is my favorite Leaf Die-namics die! I used Sour Apple and Jellybean Green felt for the leaves.
