Day 18 - Wreaths

I love wreaths.  I love drawing them, stamping them, colouring them and decorating them.  I also love making them and hanging them in my house at Christmastime.  My favourite kinds of wreaths are the ones that are made of bare branches that have been woven together and then decorated with berries or buttons.
 
I made this card with a gorgeous Memory Box die I picked up at the Brisbane Craft show in October.  I cut six of the shapes and layered them together to form the wreath base then decorated with some self-adhesive pearls.
 

YOUR TURN: Use items from your stash to create a wreath card.  It doesn't have to be a wreath to begin with, you can build up a circle with stamps, die cuts or punches and then decorate it with pearls, rhinestones, buttons or anything else you have on hand.
Upload your creations here.

The grapevine type of wreath is my fave as well. Love your card and the beautiful bg behind the wreath. Been tied up the last couple of days but hope to post something soon.

I love what you have done with this wreath. I have this die too and obviously need to be a bit more creative with it! Thanks for the inspiration.

Wonderful, Beccy!
I love the way you have picked up the colours from the background paper and used them on the wreath.
I also want to thank you for all the other gorgeous ideas you have given us during the last weeks. For me that has meant a lot!!
Hugs, Swissie

Oooh there is lots of prettiness I missed recently. Love your pretty feature snow flake, your ribbony bauble, leafy poinsettia and lovely advent scene and this wreath is very striking! Perfect colour choices and a lovely DP to set off your pretty wreaths and pearls. Hugs, Lesley
