I wanted to create a wreath that could stay up throughout the winter, one that did not scream Christmas (no offense to anyone, but I don't celebrate the holiday), and in a color palette in keeping with the season (but no red and green).
Here's what I came up with:
I used both the regular sized and mini snowflake rosette dies, cut from some white on white scrapbook paper, and then lightly glittered. The small non rosette snowflakes are also from Tim; they are his movers and shapers minis, and they were cut from some of the blue paper in his Vintage Shabby paper stack. I rubbed some Stardust stickles on those. The white "ornaments" are really some fake pearls from a broken necklace. They too have a light coating of stickles. Everything was put together and attached with a glue gun. Yep, I went old school on this, and really, the glue gun is the best way to assemble the rosettes and get them to stick (with no drying time) to the wreath base. Speaking of which, it is just a 10" paper plate with the inside cut out. It was wrapped with some white lace so any section not completely covered with the rosettes and other embellishments would look pretty.
I think my next project with these wonderful dies will be the 2012 version of the snowman I made last year with the original rosette dies. Remember this guy? I love him! Can't wait to give him a playmate.
