Today I have a fun, easy summer wreath that I made using my Cricut Expression, Art Philosophy, Artiste and Flower Shoppe.
Over the coarse of a few weeks, it shouldn't have taken that long, I made about 50 flowers from the 3 Cricut cartridges above from lots of different papers in my stash. I inked the edges of most of them, assembled using hot glue.
I purchased a green wreath form from Walmart and again using my hot glue gun, attached the flowers to the form.I only put them on the front half of the form so it would lay flat against the door. The ribbon I used to hang it was from a roll of chiffon type that I got from The Christmas Tree Shop. After I attached the flowers I decided it need something else so I cut out leaves using Artiste and stamping them with the Close To My Heart June Stamp of the Month - S1306. I put them in randomly between the flowers to hide any gaps.
It was such a good feeling to finally be able to take down my Christmas door decoration and replace it with this bright and cheerful wreath, even if was in June ! :)
