Do ya love it??!! I sure do! I bought a foam wreath base at Michael's and wrapped it in green yarn. I decided to decorate it with some bears from my Teddy Bear Parade cartridge - I am in love with that cartridge! I also decided to add some rolled flowers that I hand cut - they are easy peasy to make!
The super cute Santa! I think he is adorable. I cut all the bears at 4.5 inches. they are a tiny but big, I think next time I might do them a little smaller - maybe 4 inches and add a cut out "Ho, Ho, Ho" or something.
The elf - paper is mostly from Recollections, although there is some SU in there too. I doodle around with my Sakura jelly roll pen. I glue gunned everything on the wreath - they should last forever :)
Sorry, this pic is a bit blurry. I must admit - I think the Rudolph was one of my least favorite on the tri - fold - I feel like the nose is too big or something, but I must admit - he is much cute in real life.
Here is a close up of the rolled flowers. Simple to make, but I think pretty effective! On the whole, I am thrilled with how this wreath turned out. I am considering making another for my sister in law and her family. I think her kids would like it!
One winner chosen by random.org will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to their store!
