Today's Tutorial was created by design team member Cindy Liebel. This wreath is so different than the typical wreath you see for Christmas. I love that!
I added the pdf download for this tutorial over on the left side of the blog under 'Recipes' for you.
I am so ready to decorate for Christmas. It's, of course, one of my favorite holiday's and I always look forward to creating handmade projects to display or as gifts for family and friends. Today, I am excited to share a wreath using Jillibean Soups Soup Staples papers and someChristmas Chestnut Soup Journaling sprouts & stickers.
I was completely inspired by this mirror wreath while visiting with friends in Baltimore earlier this fall. It was displayed i a super cute home decor store & I couldn't wait to get the chance to recreate it in my own way.
Cut our approx. 3 1/2" chipboard circle both sides with pattern paper, making sure to add at least 12" of twine to one side for hanging.
Trim a variety of lengths from the Soup Staples collection, Olive & Pink sugar...3" x 12", 4" x 12", 5.5" x12" & so on. You can decided on your desired lengths for variation. Then cut down each trip by 2 1/2" (ex. 3" x 2 1/2" or 5.5" x 2.5").
Using a pencil, tightly roll pieces of pattern papers, adding adhesive to end of paper. Make sure glue is set & paper is permanently secure.
You will end up with several groupings of pixie sticks that have been pinched and glued together.
Use a hot glue gun or a generous amount of Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere each of grouping together. If you find you have open spaces, roll a few more pixie sticks and adhere them in between open spaces, for maximum coverage.
Once you have all the pixie sticks glued in place, turn wreath right side up and adhere (using glue gun or a generous amount of Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive) another circle chipboard piece that measures approximately 2 1/2" round. Layer some Christmas Chestnut Soup Journaling sprouts to the center of chipboard and pop-dot Christmas Chestnut Soup cardstock stickers
Hang on your favorite door :)
Thank you Cindy for a great tutorial today!
Have a good one!
