Hey there Peeps! Time again for another fun Linky Party with the Designers at Crafty Secrets! Theme: Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart! This month we are focusing on our blessings. You can share Thanksgiving table decor, Place Cards, Wall Hangings, Thank You Notes, Hostess Gifts, Gratitude Journals, Layouts, Mixed Media Canvases…anything that has to do with counting our blessings, showing gratitude and being thankful.
You should be coming to me from Diane’s Blog.
I wanted to show you how I created the wreath…. I started with some wired berry garland from the floral dept at the craft store. I’m not really exactly sure what it’s supposed to be called as it’s just labeled as accessory. Anyhoo…I got 2 colors of whatever it is and set to work.
I started with the light colored berries and made myself a good sized loop. Enough to get the packaging trough easily while I worked.Then I wrapped it around again to start filling it in. Remember it’s wired so you can shape it after you get all the layers done.
Now add the darker colored berry and offset it a bit so all the berries won’t get bunched up together.
My natural instinct with flowers is to glue on as many as will fit….but for this I liked a bit of the wreath base showing so less is more. But only this time!!!!!
Okay that’s all for me. Your next stop is Michelle. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
