Festive Wreath

As well as all the paper kits that My Creative Scrapbook do Pam also puts together a flower kit each month and this month I was the very lucky design team member who got to play with it!! I decided to create a festive garland which I had great fun putting together, all you need it....

Flower kit
Willow garland - I bought mine from my local florist.
Hot Glue gun
MME chipboard banner from the Main kit
Gardeners string

I intertwined the two petaloo vines before I secured them onto the garland which made life a lot easier.

I threaded the chipboard letters onto the string and then peeled off the backing from the hoops and secured the string in place temporarily on the adhesive. To make each letter really secure I added some hot glue across each piece of string and onto the chipboard.

When it came to fixing the chipboard banner into place it was much easier to hang the wreath on the back of a door so that I could see exactly how it was going to look before I tied each side off.

I have just got to find somewhere appropriate to hang this now!
